Convention 2020 bookings open!

We’re pleased to announce that online booking for our 2020 Convention is now open! 

Our Teacher
Following the success of our last Convention in Birmingham in 2017, it is an honour to welcome Jawahar Bangera back to the UK to lead our Convention once more. Jawahar started practising yoga directly under Guruji in 1969, and accompanied Guruji to many conventions over the years, he is a very experienced senior teacher, leading classes all over the world and at home in Mumbai where he is a director of the Iyengar Institute Yogashraya which was inaugurated by BKS Iyengar in 2002.

“This is an opportunity for us to experience Guruji’s teachings directly from one of Guruji’s most senior teachers.”

New Convention Website
We’re also delighted to tell you that we have created a Convention micro-website. Packed full of information, this site will be added to over the coming months to ensure that you know everything you need to, in order to prepare for our 2020 Convention. www.iyengaryogaukconvention.org

This Convention is for teacher trainees/mentees, teachers, and practitioners with a minimum of two years Iyengar yoga practice.
