Gratitude and Appreciation

The Iyengar Yoga National Association of the U.S. (IYNAUS) holds a convention every three years. It also sponsors regional conferences targeted at yoga students, including newcomers to the Iyengar method.

It takes the dedication of many volunteers, offering their time, energy and expertise to pull together events like this one. We are hard at work gathering information and making the arrangements to give all participants the time to reflect, observe, to look within in order to penetrate the depths of the Iyengars’ teachings.

With sincere appreciation for their efforts, and acknowledging that this is an incomplete list of people who are helping to create this event, we offer our thanks to the following.
