Campaign to Support the Institute of New York


Our beloved center of study and practice, the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York, will relocate in 2014 and we need your help to build our new home.  We have set a goal of $350,000 to support the one-time costs of relocation and construction of a new Institute on the 2nd floor of our current building. A successful move will only be possible through the participation of our full community of members, students, and partners.  This year will be full of events, celebrations and opportunities to advance our mission, build our community and help write the next chapter in our storied history. Join us!
