Change in Methods for Renewing Membership

Iyengar Yoga Association of Los AngelesBeginning on January 1, 2019, IYALA membership dues for all members will be paid through the national organization – the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the US (IYNAUS).

Note: There will no longer be an Auto-Renew option through IYALA and MindBody.

New members can apply for membership at IYNAUS at iynaus.org/join.

Continuing members will receive an email reminder from IYNAUS with a link to renew your membership each year.

Processing all dues through our national organization will result in more accurate and up-to-date membership rosters, and will be integrated into the databases used at the Institute in order for members to receive discounts on classes and books.


Please keep in mind the following with regard to accessing your membership information, whether you are a new or continuing member:

  • IYALA members are automatically members of IYNAUS, the Iyengar Yoga national organization.
  • Every member of IYNAUS has an individual account with a personal login.
  • If you are a member of IYALA or have been in the past, you probably already have a login for the IYNAUS website, even if you have never used it. Go to Secure.iynaus.org. You will be shown the sign in form, where you can enter your email address and password.
  • If you don’t know your password, you can use the link labeled “Forgot your password?” to reset it.
  • If you have never been a member of IYNAUS before, you can create a login account by clicking the link labeled New to IYNAUS? – Register now.
  • Once you have signed in, if you are not automatically redirected to the IYNAUS membership site, you will see links labeled “Secure.iynaus.org” and “Member Application.” Click on the link labeled “Member Application” to be taken directly to the form to join IYNAUS. If there is already a membership record for you in the IYNAUS system, your login will be associated with it.
  • Note: In the membership form it is important to select LOS ANGELES as your region. This will make you a member of IYALA when you complete your registration.
