IYNAUS’ Investigation of Itself

 The investigation will not be limited to one person’s complaint.  It will include other allegations covering the time period from January 1, 1992 to the present.  In this regard, we want the Investigator to conduct a thorough investigation and to be able to consider any allegations concerning this period.  We thus want to assure thatContinue reading “IYNAUS’ Investigation of Itself”


Spend more than you make teaching Iyengar yoga on Iyengar Yoga continuing education hours! Get your 30 hours by simply paying to attend a class or workshop that you may or may not want to attend. Then don’t forget to log your attendance on your personal page on IYNAUS website before you renew your CIYTContinue reading “DON’T LOSE YOUR CIYT STATUS!”


Just to be clear, I am a devoted student of Manouso Manos. The intent of this blog is to shine light on the hypocrisy so that the truth might be known. The one and only time I asked a question of the current IYNAUS president (who was assisting in a workshop taught by Manouso Manos),Continue reading “Clarification”

Hell Hath No Fury Like An Iyengar (or former Iyengar)Yogi Scorned

Just IYNAUS and Sunk Cost Fallacy

I’ve been thinking why anyone would join IYNAUS and/or become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT). Back in late 2018, I inquired to the IYNAUS Director of Operations (the one who is now circulating a letter regarding the power abuses of the IYNAUS president) about the number of IYNAUS members. She replied around 5000. TheContinue reading “Just IYNAUS and Sunk Cost Fallacy”


So IYNAUS responded to its membership about the letter circulating from the former Director of Operations regarding the current IYNAUS president: In the meantime a former board member sent an email to IYNAUS members asking them to sign a petition to request a community meeting. Allegations surfaced months ago, and more details are continuing toContinue reading “JUST WTF IYNAUS?”
