January 9 marks Manouso’s 71st birthday. I know I am not alone in wishing him a fabulous birthday and also wishing for his in-person adjustments at an in-person workshop. What a delight it would be to hear him bark instructions at me and bask in his personal attention to helping my upper back.

Happy Birthday, Manouso. Thank you for imparting to us all you learned from your teacher, BKS Iyengar, and, more importantly, through your decades of practice. BKS Iyengar gave you a starting point from which you continue to improvise and innovate. Grateful for your artistry, mastery, and care. I know I am not alone in celebrating you. Celebrate!
