What is IY (UK)?
Iyengar Yoga (UK) provides a network of information about Iyengar yoga and yoga events in the United Kingdom. Many groups of members have formed institutes or local groups which share information and hold events on a local scale; others remain as individual members. All members receive our twice-yearly magazine, Iyengar Yoga News.
IY (UK) organises an Iyengar yoga convention each year in a different place throughout the United Kingdom, during which one or more senior guest teachers from the United Kingdom or abroad take classes over a weekend. Click here for details of past and future Conventions.
IY (UK) is responsible for maintaining standards of teaching of Iyengar yoga, and undertakes regular assessments and certification of those wishing to teach from Introductory up to Senior levels. It also co-ordinates Professional Development Days throughout the United Kingdom, to enable teachers to remain up to date and to help maintain the validity of their teaching certificates. In addition the Association provides insurance cover for teacher members.
