IYASE Sequences by CIYI Senior Instructors can help teachers and practitioners evolve their understanding of sequencing and poses. Look for sequences by Senior Instructors like John Schumacher and Kathleen Pringle. The IYASE Home Practice Project is all thanks to the work of Iyengar practitioner, Susanne Bulington from Memphis, TN, who asked our Board President, Lisa Waas if she could volunteer her time on an upcoming IYASE project. The goal of the project is to offer members a wide range of dynamic sequences starting with our most senior instructors.
