Join your local Iyengar institute!

A message from Edgar Stringer, Chair of AIYI

I’m writing to you on behalf of the Avon Iyengar Yoga Institute with a request for your support.
Are you aware that for just £20 you can become a member of the AIYI (your local Iyengar Institute), and your membership will include 2 magazines a year from the national association IY (UK) and a members discount to AIYI events.

This is a good time to join (the year starts on 1st April) and it’s a straightforward process on the IY(UK) website link below. New members: just select AIYI as your regional institute and you will join both automatically.

https://iyengaryoga.org.uk/membership-joining/

Here’s a link to the AIYI website.

Please also consider joining the AIYI committee.  It is not an onerous task there are just 3 or 4 meetings a year. We really value non-teacher members as well as teachers.

Next Meeting 11th March 2018

Our (AIYI) next meeting is on Sunday 11th March at Yogawest at 6pm which should last for about an hour.
We would love to see you there, and to hear any ideas you might have to help us to continue to promote and develop Iyengar Yoga in our area.
Please let Edgar know if you’re interested in getting involved.Many thanks,
Edgar Stringer (AIYI Chair)

Weather Impact on Classes (March 2nd & 3rd)

The heating is on 24/7 and classes are running!

This page last updated at 5.30pm on March 2nd 2018

STOP PRESS: all weekend classes running as per online timetable.

Yogawest is currently fully open, with all classes running as per the online timetable, which is where we will post any updates: check the comments box next to your class for latest info, or call us to check on 0117 924 3330.

The heating is on permanently and so far the studios are coping well with the cold snap, but you may want to wear an extra layer and a pair of grippy socks in class!

And because Denmark Place is unlikely to be gritted, please be careful on your way in.

Teacher Training this weekend

The training weekend (March 2–4) is going ahead. Some participants have already travelled from afar, and many others are local (snow boots on!), so we are not cancelling it at this stage.

However, we would advise you to make your own decision as to whether it is sensible and safe to travel to us, and completely understand if you cannot make it.

We will email all trainees as soon as (and if) the situation changes.
