  • Recommended transportation for Wyndham guests
    After much research, we found the most cost effective mode of transportation to the Boca Raton Resort and Club (where all events take place) is Uber. The one-way cost is approximately $10. If three or four persons share an Uber vehicle, this cost is even less. Uber is quick and efficient. To use Uber, please download the Uber app BEFORE arriving in Florida.

"For the next generation, it is our responsibility to remain on the divine path as shown by [the] intensity of [his] practice and depth of understanding of yoga.”
— Geeta Iyengar, Pune 2014 Convention

Carrying the message and knowledge of BKS Iyengar to the next generation

Although our precious Guruji is no longer with us, his gift of yoga lives in all who follow his extraordinary teachings. As urged by the Iyengar family, our 2016 Iyengar Convention 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.

Welcoming Abhijata Sridhar

Abhijata Sridhar is a senior teacher at Ramanani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India. As a young woman of 16, she had the good fortune of beginning her yoga studies under the guidance of her maternal grandfather, the world renowned yogacharya, BKS Iyengar, her aunt, Geeta S. Iyengar, and her uncle, Prashant Iyengar.

Abhijata earned a master’s degree in bioformatics from the University of Pune before making a decision to devote herself to the fulltime study and teaching of yoga at RIMYI. Once she did, it was evident to anyone studying at the Institute that BKS Iyengar and his granddaughter were devoted to one another and to the practice they shared.

Abhijata travelled with her grandfather, BKS Iyengar to Russia and China as well as accompanying her aunt Geeta S. Iyengar to international yoga conventions in the UK, Australia, Germany, the USA, and China. She has also taught independently at yoga conventions in France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, the UK, and Israel.

IYNAUS is honored to host Geetaji and Abhijata together at our May, 2016 convention. Our yoga community looks forward to becoming acquainted with this inspiring young teacher who is wholeheartedly committed to carrying on her grandfather’s legacy.
