Dr. Asana Andiappan recently left us for his heavenly abode. He was a highly accom­plished yogi of international repute. He first trained in Yoga with Yogacharya S.Sundaram of Bangalore as a child, and later developed his own sequence of curative asanas based on the teachings of Sage Thirumoolar. He was endowed with the title of Asana by Swami Sri Sankaracharya for his unrelenting pursuit of yogic therapy for common ailments. He estab­lished the Sundara Yoga and Natural Living Trust. He was awarded the Yogarathna (Jewel of Yoga) for his distinguished yogic achieve­ments, and has been especially commended for his approach to yoga in curing senility and dementia, and quite recently for his immacu­late research on yoga for a healthy heart. IYA expresses its condolences to the Yoga Guru.
