What is IY(UK)?

Iyengar Yoga (UK) provides a network of information about Iyengar yoga and yoga events in the United Kingdom and Ireland. 

You can search for teachers and classes (including Therapy classes) on our homepage and see Iyengar Yoga holidays, workshops and events here


Members have formed local Member 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, which is available in print and online.

Each year in mid-January, IY(UK) teachers organise free taster classes, demonstrations and other events, listed here.


IY(UK) organises an Iyengar yoga convention each year in a different UK location, where one or more senior guest teachers from the UK or abroad lead classes over a weekend.

IY(UK) is responsible for maintaining standards of teaching of Iyengar yoga, and undertakes regular assessments and certification of those wishing to teach from Level 1 to Level 3. 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.
