IYNAUS Convention 2023 Featuring Abhijata Iyengar

“Purity and discrimination should be the substrate from which anything that you do has to emanate – your actions, your reactions, your words, your teachings, your responses, your thoughts, your touch.”

—Abhijata Iyengar


Abhijata Iyengar

IYNAUS is pleased to welcome Abhijata Iyengar, who will lead our 2023 convention in San Diego.

Abhijata Iyengar began her yoga study at 16 under her maternal grandfather's direct guidance, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar, her aunt, Dr. Geeta S. Iyengar, and her uncle Sri Prashant Iyengar.

Abhijata holds a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and a Masters in Bioinformatics. She was contemplating a Ph.D. when her path changed, and she began teaching Iyengar Yoga under the tutelage of her grandfather, aunt, and uncle.

Currently, Abhijata is a senior teacher at RIMYI in Pune and teaches internationally at Iyengar Yoga conventions around the world. She is in charge of the therapeutic classes at the institute. While her family's influence is evident in her instruction, she has developed her teaching style that evinces poise, maturity, and humor.
