As much as I would like you all to come to my classes I know this to be unrealistic and impossible. My deepest hope is however that as many people as possible are exposed to the manifolds and wholistic benefits of Iyengar Yoga, regularly. So: here I am listing people, websites and places that I have experienced directly and therefore I can vouch for.
First of all check regularly the full list of my classes, here: https://iyengaryogasadhana.com/__trashed/
Don’t forget to subscribe to my website and blogs in order to get updates on classes I teach-there maybe new ones added or other ones that had to be suspended… A new one in Brixton starting on June 17th!!
All Iyengar Yoga Qualified Teachers must belong to the professional body of the UK Iyengar Yoga Association. On their website, you can easily search for a teacher in your area. Have a look here: https://iyengaryoga.org.uk
If you live or work in the South East London and Kent areas, you could consult the Kent Iyengar Yoga Institute’s listing of weekly classes held by its member teachers: http://www.kentyoga.org.uk/pages/class-listing
I have started my Iyengar yoga life in 2000 at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of South London (IYISL). I still teach there but they also have a busy weekly schedule that should be quite helpful if you live in South East London, specifically in Deptford, Lewisham, and New Cross. See their full timetable here: https://www.iyisl.com/classes/
If you live in Birmingham, you are very fortunate to have the Iyengar Yoga Insitute of Birmingham at your doorstep! The director, Jayne Orton, is one of the highest qualified teachers in the UK. She is my teacher trainer and teacher. I go to the Institute as often as I can. I was there during the last May Bank Holiday weekend for example, for a workshop on yoga and philisophy taught by Jayne and Hindu Philosophy professor Ewing Bryant! Follow this link to see the Institute’s weekly class schedule: http://www.iyengaryoga.uk.com/schedule-and-events
My very first teacher Glenys Shepherd, also the founder of the IYISL, has now retired and she only teaches occasionally to small groups of her older pupils, like me. Since first meeting her I have had a few more wonderful and dedicated teachers in London… Wendy McGuire for example, who teaches in the Greenwich and Blackheath areas. Her classes are listed on her website here: http://www.wendymcguire.co.uk/classes.html
At the moment I am following one of Sophie Carrington‘s classes. She does not have a website but you can find her classes here: https://iyengaryoga.org.uk/teacher-listing/user/12793/
Whenever I can, but not often enough, I go to Uday Bhosale classes. Check on his website, especially if you live in Reading! http://www.yogawithuday.com/class-category/classes/
Farther away…planning a holiday anyone? In Pula, Croatia, there is an Iyengar yoga studio with regular weekly classes. This Summer and for the third year running I will be teaching a Summer workshop for Nataša, the owner of the studio, at the end of June. Check Nataša’s website’s for classes and workshops: https://iyengaryoga.hr/classes/
Finally here follows a list of places that I have visited for one-off classes, workshops and weekend intensives:
In Maida Vale, London: http://iyi.org.uk
In Manchester, the oldest UK Iyengar Yoga Institute: https://www.mdiiy.org.uk
Last but not least, in Pune, India there is the Mother Iyengar Institute: http://bksiyengar.com/modules/Institut/RIMYI/rimyi.htm
….and many more.
