AIYI Devki Desai event CANCELLED


The Avon Institute are extremely disappointed to announce that Devki Desai is unable to make it to the UK this week, and accordingly they must cancel this Friday’s Yoga Day at Yogawest (4th May).

The AIYI will be in touch about refunds shortly. Please do not contact Yogawest for a refund as this was an AIYI event.

Edgar will be teaching his 10–12 Experienced and 12.15–1.45 General class as usual, and if you have arranged to be in Bristol that day, you are very welcome to attend one or both classes.

Other classes on Friday are 9.30 General (Joanna teaching); 5.45pm Beginner (Joanna) and 6pm Restorative (Lizzie).

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.

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)
