Important Message

Dear Members of our Community,

In response to the increasing call for social distancing and other precautionary measures related to preventing the spread of COVID-19, the New York and Brooklyn Institutes will be temporarily closed. This decision is being made after careful thought, consideration, and deliberation by the administration and the Board of Directors. We believe it is the best way we can do our part as a community to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus and protect our staff, faculty, students, and community members, particularly the most vulnerable.

All Daily Classes, Events, and Workshops are cancelled during this time. If you have signed up for a Daily Class in advance, you will not be charged and all Class Cards will be extended. If you have pre-registered for a Series or Workshop, we will return the purchase amount to your account. If you prefer to receive a full refund, please contact info@iyengarnyc.org.

We recognize that this is a stressful time for all of us, and that we may play an important role in your quest for relief of the anxiety that goes along with the current climate. Although we will be separated for this temporary time, we are connected through yoga and the special practice that we share. Take this time to explore your inner resources and bring your practice home. We will send you special correspondences and sequences to practice in the coming days.

Our workshop with Raya Uma Datta is currently scheduled to proceed as planned. That said, we will continue to monitor information as it becomes available to determine if a change to the event’s status is required.

If you have had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms, we ask that you please contact your healthcare provider. For more information and updates on COVID-19, please check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NYS Department of Health websites.

We thank you for your understanding as we take steps to ensure the safety of our entire community. Your health and wellbeing is our first priority. Thank you so much for your support, past, present, and future. May we go forward in this time of uncertainty secure in our connection to Iyengar Yoga and each other.
