January 2017 at Iyengar Yoga Institutes of New York & Brooklyn

30th Anniversary

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York!

We have come a long way since our journey began as a collective of teachers and students in 1987. Since then, we expanded into the outer boroughs with the opening of the Institute of Brooklyn in 2013 and re-christened the Institute of New York in 2014. We now welcome more than 6,000 students each year and our dedication to inspire and enable progressive lifetime learning and practice in the art, science, and philosophy of Iyengar Yoga is stronger than ever.

Over the last 30 years our mission has remained focused on you: our students. It is your commitment, support, and study that ensures the future of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York.

Keep an eye out in 2017 for events, an expanded Membership program, and ways you can be more involved in one of the most diverse communities of teachers and students in the tri-state area.

We look forward to continuing our journey with you.

Namaste,

James Murphy, Association Director
Edward McKeaney, Executive Director

Introductory Options for New Students

We welcome new students to attend one of our Introductory options or any Level 1 class to become familiar with the fundamentals of the Iyengar Yoga method. We ask that you pre-register before joining us.

As a new student, Iyengar Yoga offers a safe and systematic progression of study helping you develop your skills and abilities, within each class and from class to class. Also, in the Iyengar Yoga method new students find the use of props such as blankets, blocks, belts and chairs to deepen learning and adjust postures to individual needs.
