Introduction to Convention


Every 3 years, the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States – IYNAUS – community organizes itself around a convention for practice and celebration of our lineage. First BKS Iyengar came, then Geeta Iyengar, and now we are blessed to have Abhijata, the granddaugther of BKS Iyengar teaching us for the week.
Check out some details on our adventure here:
Many of you know, Chris and I both just returned from seperate trips to Pune and study at the Iyengar Institute. These conventions are a time that can bring us closer to study in India without all the travel. And, the conventions are now open to all practitioners and not just teachers…so, plan ahead for 2022!
In the meantime, I am happy that this will be my first direct blogging connection with you at The Yoga Place. While many of your teachers are away, make sure to still get to classes! And stay tuned for regular updates of all our activities at the convention in Dallas, TX.
This time is a great boost not only for the education of your teachers, but of course everything we soak up in that time, we bring back to you! This adds to the already outstanding knowledge and experience provided to you by the teachers at The Yoga Place.
See you soon in class! Cant wait to meet all of you!

Jennie Williford CIYT

Jennie Williford (CIYT Level 3) is a transplant to LaCrosse via Montana, Illinois, and originally Texas. Throughout her life moves and 5 trips to India, Jennie has acquired a well-rounded and multi-faceted approach to Iyengar Yoga since her start in 1998. Jennie loves the experimental and explorative nature of yoga in accessing deeper knowledge of the Self on every level. The practice of yoga can be intense and introspective, however as practitioners we can be light-hearted and open-minded in our discipline. Jennie is intrigued by the philosophy of yoga and hopes to share this depth of subject while teaching the physical and mental benefits that come from the practice of posture.
