Join Here

As SWLSIY is a local member group of IY(UK), joining SWLSIY and IY(UK) is done together as a simple one-stop process. You join IY(UK) and pay your membership fee to them, and they let us know you have joined and pass on a portion of your membership fee to us.

Begin by clicking on this link to take you to the IY(UK) joining page:

IY(UK) standard registration

If you are asked to select your membership type, select Member Group Member (first option) from these options:

Next, you will be asked:

Select South West London and Surrey (we are the last one in the list). Don’t select South West England by mistake! On the next screen you will see that the SWLSIY discount has been applied you your membership fee. This example shows the discount for non-teachers:

The rest of the form is straightforward to complete. Once you have completed the process, IY(UK) will contact us to let you know that you have joined/renewed.

The membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March. You can join at any time during the year.

The standard IY(UK) membership fee for the year starting 1st April 2022 is £21 but when you select SWLSIY as your member group you get a small discount applied automatically. If you are joining or renewing as a non-teacher member, the fee is discounted to £14, and as an Iyengar teacher member, the fee is discounted to £20.

Secondary Members and joining up via SWLSIY

It is no longer possible to join directly via SWLSIY, with the exception of joining as a secondary member. This applies to anyone already a member of IY(UK) either as an individual member or as a member of another group, who would also like to join SWLSIY. If you would like to join as a secondary member please drop an email to the SWLSIY Membership Secretary, Jane, ( and ask for details.
