Iyengar Yoga is rooted in the ancient Indian art of Patanjali yoga. Patanjali wrote of Astanga Yoga, the eight- limbed path towards spiritual fulfillment, in TheYoga Sutras, over 2,500 years ago. This invocation pays respect to Patanjali.

yogena cittasya padena vacam
malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
yopakarottam pravaram muninam
patanjalim pranajaliranato'smi
abahu purusakaram
sankha cakrasi dharinam
sahasra sirasam svetam
pranamami patanjalim

Let us bow before the noblest of sages Patanjali,
who gave yoga for serenity and sanctity of mind,
grammar for clarity and purity of speech and
medicine for perfection of health.
Let us prostrate before Patanjali, an incarnation
of Adisesa, whose upper body has a human
form, whose arms hold a couch and a disc, and
who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra.
Let us prostrate before Lord Adisesa who manifested
himself on earth as Patanjali to grace the human
race with health and harmony.
