The first issue of Yoga Vaani was published in June 1985 not long after the inaugural meeting of the Association. Over 101 issues were produced over the next 25 years ceasing production in 2010. Special commemorative issues were produced for the visit to Australiaby BKS Iyengar in 1992, the National Convention in Melbournein 1995, Smt Geeta S. Iyengar’s visits in 1996 and 2003, and BKS Iyengar 80th Birthday in 1998 and 90th Birthday in 2008.
Originally called simply “The Newsletter” it was given the name Yoga Vaani (the Voice of Yoga) by Guruji, BKS Iyengar in 1997. The primary vision of the journal was to bring to the members articles on yoga by Guruji, BKS Iyengar, his daughter Geeta S. Iyengar and son Prashant S. Iyengar as well as information and articles from the Iyengar yoga community worldwide.
Yoga Vaani was distributed to the members of the Association as part of the annual subscription and was voluntarily edited, produced and distributed by members. Members can access past issues of Yoga Vaani by searching through the libray pages.
