As a way of thanking you for your membership, the IMIYA board is thrilled to offer you an amazing opportunity. We have been able to coordinate a photo shoot for all current IMIYA members and teachers with Richard Cummings, who is a well-known and well-respected photographer in the yoga world.

We in the InterMountain region are lucky to have Rick based out of Boulder and available to us. His ability to capture the essences of BOTH the postures and the person in his photographs is wonderful and unique. He has great experience with headshots and asana shots, and does work for individuals as well as for Yoga Journal.

Please check out his website.

Please also view his work in Jack Cuneo’s Light on Yoga project.

"Each month of Guruji's Centenary, with Geetaji's blessing, IYNAUS is publishing sequences that Guruji taught and/or practiced. The presentation is for the Iyengar Yoga sadhaka to attempt, digest, absorb, and reflect upon and be at Guruji's feet. Some postures are presented with annotations and some without." Lois Steinberg
