The Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) opened its doors in 1975. It is named in honor of B. K. S. Iyengar’s wife, Ramamani, who died while construction of the Institute was underway. History buffs among you might enjoy leafing through the pamphlet that was put together for the inauguration of RIMYI. The document is part of the Dr. Marian S. Garfinkel Collection in the IYNAUS Archives.

Registration for the December special session in Pune led by Abhijata Sridhar is now open.
