How to Practice Yoga, Part I by Holly Walck Kostura

Posted by on Dec 9, 2015 in Sequence, Teachers | Comments Off on How to Practice Yoga, Part I by Holly Walck Kostura

  “Alignment is enlightenment.” -B.K.S. Iyengar   For over ten years now I have been teaching Iyengar Yoga, the method of Hatha Yoga developed by world-renowned Yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar. Guruji, as he is affectionately known to his pupils, was known for his majestic demonstrations of Yoga asanas (postures) but his true brilliance was in how he wove the philosophy of Yoga into his teaching, bringing it to the forefront and raising the profile of Hatha Yoga in India and throughout the world.   Classically, Hatha...

Elections for New Board of Directors and Other Volunteer Positions

Posted by on Jun 30, 2012 in Events, IYASCUS | Comments Off on Elections for New Board of Directors and Other Volunteer Positions

According to our by-laws, we need to hold elections every 2 years. Board members may serve 2 consecutive 2-year terms, but after that, they need to step down and take a break. Anne-Marie Schultz and Karen Phillips have been serving at least that long and need to step down. If you are interested in the matters of IYASCUS and would like to serve on the Board, be thinking about upcoming elections. We’ll be doing them through an email survey before the year ends.  We’ll keep you posted and have more to say about this in...
