ULTIMATE FREEDOM FROM IYNAUS

A few years back the cover photo of Yoga Samachar, the magazine of the Iyengar Yoga community in the U.S. and beyond, which was published twice a year by the Publications Committee of IYNAUS, featured a charismatic, young teacher out of the Bay Area. Over time, probably in an effort to cut costs, the YogaContinue reading “ULTIMATE FREEDOM FROM IYNAUS”

Is the IYNAUS President Drunk on Power?

Oh my goodness, so much drama around the IYNAUS president. He recently sent an incriminating email with permission to share it widely. When I read it my immediate reaction was, what is this dude hiding!!!! In the email he exonerates himself while he throws several others (by first and last name) under the bus, includingContinue reading “Is the IYNAUS President Drunk on Power?”

IYNAUS BOARD UPDATE

Today, IYNAUS sent a letter to its shrinking membership. They don’t seem to post their board updates across all social media platforms anymore…The letter addresses in more detail the complaints by two IYNAUS committee chairs against the IYNAUS president and the similar complaints against the IYNAUS President lodged by the former IYNAUS Director of Operations.Continue reading “IYNAUS BOARD UPDATE”

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”

JUST WTF IYNAUS?

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?”

I’m with the Banned!

Thank you for all the comments on my last post. I only published a few. My last post was my attempt at being proactive because of of previous experiences in the Iyengar yoga community and the recent interest in me and my blog by certain teachers in the Iyengar community. It’s ironic how sales soarContinue reading “I’m with the Banned!”

Taking Iyengar out of Iyengar Yoga

One of the hardest parts about being alive today is the pervasive culture of intolerance for the basic humanity of being human. This is perfectly illustrated in the dynamics of the Iyengar system of yoga. BKS Iyengar’s teaching methods are harshly judged by the standards of the present not only by people outside of IyengarContinue reading “Taking Iyengar out of Iyengar Yoga”
