My Story

Iyengar Yoga in Action (IYiA) is an established pressure group that aims to act as a model of good practice working alongside IY(UK) in fighting racism and all forms of discrimination within the Iyengar Yoga community. During the last 9 months, by running a series of workshops, we have raised more than £10,000 for UK charities which have anti-racism at the core of what they do. These workshops have also helped to raise awareness of some of the challenges faced by Black people.

Now we want to ask you to help us raise funding for Black Minds Matter UK (BMMuk) whose mission is to connect Black individuals and families with free mental health services, https://www.blackmindsmatteruk.com.

There is no fee but we are asking for donations to The Black Minds Matter organisation.

Disclaimer: To participate you will need to choose your session, contact your teacher and wait for confirmation. It is advisable you have some yoga equipment available such as bricks, foam blocks, yoga mat, blankets, chair, bolster. Please note that by joining the classes it is your responsibility to assess whether you are ready and fit for it. If you suffer from specific injuries or disease it is best to consult with your physician first. In following this programme/sequence, you agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries, or damages, known or unknown, which you might incur as a result. You are responsible to make sure that you can see and hear the teacher properly on your device.
