DON’T MISS THE CONFERENCE/CONVENTION THIS MAY IN SAN DIEGO!
Regional Conference (May 10 - 12, 2013)
Room rates at the convention hotel are incredibly affordable—even more so if you pair up or share a room with other teachers. If you’ve never been to an IYNAUS convention before, make this your first. If you’ve been going to every convention since we started holding them, then you don’t want to miss out!
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
Big congratulations to the IYAGNY which just signed a lease on a new space in Brooklyn, New York. The opening is scheduled for late summer/early fall 2013. A spectacular celebration was held November 14 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Manhattan Institute and to raise funds for the new Brooklyn Institute.
Martha Stewart's headquarters in Manhattan was the site of the gala event, transformed with pink and orange lighting, gods and goddesses, excitement, reverie, horns and conga lines. The event also honored Judy Brick Freedman, Carol Burns and founding members of the association. Martha Stewart, champion of Iyengar Yoga and long-time student of senior teacher James Murphy, was also an honoree. The evening was a great success due to the generosity and commitment of all attendees and those whose efforts made the event possible.
A note from the Iyengar Institute of China:
We are sharing great news from China. With our Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar’s love and blessing, the Iyengar Yoga Institute of China opened on June 17, 2012, one-year after Guruji’s first visit. This is the first Iyengar institute in China under the authorization and guidance of Guruji.
The Institute dedicates itself to bringing the safe and scientific Iyengar system to anyone regardless of age and health, and to create an open forum where great ideas, practices and experience are exchanged and shared.
With the opening of the Institute, an environment has been created to foster the growth of Iyengar Yoga in China. The Chinese media is interested in reporting on yoga and the Institute is positioned to advance the benefits of this method to the general public and yoga community.
Presently, there are about 30 certified Iyengar teachers in China, which is far from enough considering China’s population of 1.3 billion. We are extending an invitation to certified Iyengar teachers to explore the possibility of teaching workshops in China. If you have a workshop idea, we’d be pleased to have you share it with us. We believe hosting teachers with diverse backgrounds and experience will help the Institute and the yoga community grow and prosper.
