Yoga Samachar's Mission
Yoga Samachar, the newsletter of the Iyengar Yoga community in the U.S. and beyond, is published twice a year by the Communications Committee of the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS). The word samachar means "news" in Sanskrit. Along with the website, iynaus.org, Yoga Samachar is designed to provide interesting and useful information to the IYNAUS membership to:
Promote the dissemination of the art and science of yoga as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar, and Prashant Iyengar.
Communicate information regarding the standards and training of certified teachers.
Report on studies regarding the practice of Iyengar Yoga.
Provide information on products that IYNAUS imports from India.
Review and present recent articles and books written by the Iyengars.
Report on recent events regarding Iyengar Yoga in Pune and worldwide.
Be a platform for the expression of experiences and thoughts from members, both students and teachers, about how the practice of yoga affects their lives.
Present ideas to stimulate every aspect of the reader's practice.
Yoga Samachar is produced by the IYNAUS Communications Committee, which consists of interested volunteers from the community.
Members may submit an article or a practice sequence for consideration for inclusion in future issues. Articles should be well written and submitted electronically.
Articles must include author's full name, certification level, and the year the author began studying Iyengar Yoga, along with contact information: email, mailing address, and phone number.
IYNAUS's mission is to spread the teachings of B. K. S. Iyengar and the Iyengar Family. The IYNAUS Board believes that central to that mission is helping Iyengar Yoga teachers promote their classes, to inform more people about Iyengar Yoga and to bring them its unique benefits. Students are urged to "Look for the Mark" in choosing a teacher — the Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark.
