What makes IYTA different?

IYTA was founded by a woman (Roma Blair) with a democratic vision for an Association not dominated by any one guru, that embraced ancient teachings from several traditions, adapted to Western culture (that is, outside an ashram). For its time in the 60\'s, it was extremely innovative and unique. And what made IYTA so attractive to so many people wanting to be teachers.
