We have just been informed this morning that due to non-life-threatening health issues , Geetaji has been prohibited from travel by her physicians.

Geetaji expresses her regret at being unable to join us, but strongly encourages all participants to continue to profit from the teachings of the Iyengar family as conveyed by Abhijata Sridhar, granddaughter to B.K.S. Iyengar.

Geetaji reminds us that drawing together as a community in practice under the guidance of Abhijata will be uplifting and the benefits will be immeasurable.

We look forward to your participation at this historic convention, led by one of Guruji’s most devoted students, Abhijata, who is carrying the legacy of Iyengar yoga into the future.

For the 2016 IYNAUS Membership Calendar we chose to focus on what is at the core of our yoga practice - the yogi in their practice space on the mat.

This beautiful full color, matte finish 8.5" x 11" calendar is perfect for home, office, or the perfect inspirational gift for yoga enthusiasts.

We asked IYNAUS Members to submit photos with a favorite quote about practice from Guruji, Geeta, or Prashant Iyengar.

We give our thanks to the Iyengar family for their dedication, service and inspiration through many years of guiding our practice.

Finally, we thank the IYNAUS Board for making this project possible, and our members who graciously submitted photos to inspire us throughout 2016.

As urged by the Iyengar family, our May 26-30 2016 Iyengar Convention in Boca Raton, Florida will focus on practice. In many writings and teachings, Guruji’s message has been to practice from the periphery to the core and then back again. Our teacher and guide for the convention classes is Abhijata Sridhar, the granddaughter of BKS Iyengar – the next generation. Learn more and register here:
