Member Groups are non profit-making membership organisations committed to promoting the practice and philosophy of Iyengar yoga in their areas. They offer a wide range of classes and workshops led by qualified teachers with years of experience. When you join IY (UK) you can join as an Individual Member (not taking out membership of your chosen local Member Group) or you can join your local Member Group, such as SWLSIY, at the same time.

As a member of both your Member Group and IY (UK) you are entitled to all the benefits of both:

  • Newsflashes of local Iyengar yoga events, workshops, new classes, weekends
  • Free copies of Iyengar Yoga News published twice a year by IY (UK)
  • Local events and classes at reduced prices
  • Information about national IY (UK) conventions
  • Regular updates by e-mail on all up and coming Iyengar Yoga events, workshops, conventions, holidays etc in the UK, Ireland and overseas.
  • The opportunity to network with other Iyengar yoga practitioners.
  • It most cases (different groups have different membership rates) it is cheaper to join a Member Group and IY (UK) together than to join just IY (UK) as an Individual Member without joining a Member Group.
