We would like to make you aware of the following development in the Iyengar Yoga community in the USA:

IYNAUS have reported the results of the independent investigation of allegations that Manouso Manos had engaged in inappropriate touching of students in his classes. The investigation has concluded that this was the case between 2005 and the present.IYNAUS provided Prashant Iyengar and Abhijata Iyengar with the Report and Executive Summary, and they have confirmed that the conduct of which Manouso was accused is improper in Iyengar Yoga.

Prashant and Abhijata have informed IYNAUS and  Manouso that he must now cease using the Iyengar Yoga name and the Iyengar Yoga certification mark both in the name of his studio and in connection with his teaching.

The implication for us in the UK and Ireland is that Manouso Manos cannot be invited to teach in any affiliated centre or by any member group.  You will find the full statement by the US association here:
