A Legend Comes to New York

At 86, his walk is amazingly light.

A day full of engagements did not appear to tire him and what he was looking forward was making the New York audience chant Om.

Yogacharya B K S Iyengar -- who is often called the father of modern yoga -- was in New York City on Friday, October 14, as part of his tour to mark the 50th year of his first visit to America to promote yoga.

People from places far away from New York had come to pay tribute to the man who has helped make Yoga the phenomenon it is in the United States. And waiting to chat with him was film director Mira Nair.
