What a journey! We’ve gone from running two physical spaces, to pivoting entirely online. We said goodbye to the Manhattan Institute this Spring, and hello to many of you in person again at our Brooklyn Institute for hybrid classes this Fall. Through it all, you remain at the center of our efforts, and our mission, to provide a home for the teaching and study of Iyengar Yoga.
As a non-profit, you support us in so many ways throughout the year, including: taking classes, joining our Membership Program, volunteering your time, and participating in events. However you’re able to engage, know that you’re contributing to the success of our organization.
Today marks the start of our Fall Fund. Along with our Yogathon every June, these two efforts make up our bi-annual fundraising campaigns and are crucial components to our annual solvency. If you’re able, please consider making a donation today to support our mission and programs.
With your support, we can continue to offer the diverse programming that you’ve come to expect, and keep our classes going in whatever form the current reality allows.
You’ve shown us time and time again how important the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York is to you. You’ve helped us keep our mission and vision alive during these incredibly challenging times and we cannot thank you enough.
Show your support today by making a tax-deductible contribution and help secure the future of IYAGNY.
We look forward to continuing this journey with you in 2022 and completing our search for a home base in Manhattan. As the process continues, please continue to join us in our Online and In-Person classrooms.
Here’s to a bright and beautiful future. We appreciate you!
As a young man, B.K.S. Iyengar searched out an in-depth understanding of the self through the practice of yoga. Awakened by the transformative experience, he adapted the practice and sought to introduce the world to a form of yoga that was deeper, more intellectual—a science, art, and philosophy—one that emphasizes complete alignment of the body, mind, breath, and soul.
Motivated by the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to strive for complete alignment, his Iyengar method prided itself on making yoga accessible to every age and every body. From there it spread and started transforming all manner of lives across continents.
Modern life in our corner of the world can be hectic, distracting and disconnecting us from our inner selves. Here more than anywhere, and now more than ever, the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York exists to help bring complete alignment to all who seek it and to all who are willing to engage.
We are a community of like-minded souls, individuals who support each other and strive toward the highest standards of excellence. Together, we are committed to the journey of a lifetime pursuit of complete alignment.
