COVID-19 FINANCIAL HARDSHIP FUND

Financial assistance is available to support those who have experienced job loss or financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The total number of awards and amount of each (up to $75) is determined on a case-by-case basis and can be used towards purchase of an IYANC membership, an IYISF public class pass, series, and/or workshop.

 

TO APPLY: Email info@iyisf.org and place in the subject line “financial aid request.” Include a brief description of how you have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the classes or workshops you would like to take, and a request for how IYISF can help you, in partial or full, make these programs more affordable.

 

Requests are to be made 2 weeks before date of event or start of first class.

 

REGIONAL SCHOLARSHIP

The IYANC board offers a limited number of IYANC Regional Scholarships each calendar year to help make the continued learning of Iyengar Yoga accessible to members who, due to financial constraints, otherwise could not participate. Scholarship funds must be used to study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) in a program (workshop, series, advanced studies, immersion, teacher education, etc.) at a venue within the IYANC region. APPLY HERE.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

New in 2022, IYISF partnered with Armando Luna Yoga Studio to offer Iyengar Yoga classes to a community that had been beyond the reach of the Institute from its studio location on Sutter Street. With support from donors, we are pleased to offer these classes in BayView-Hunters Point.
Wednesdays, Noon – 1:30PM All Levels with Janet MacLeod (donation-based)
Sundays, 10:30 – 11:45AM Introductory 4-Week Series with Sharon Hawley (starts February 6)

Proof of Vaccination and a signed waiver is required prior to the first class.
Review complete in-studio protocol here. (IYISF and Armando Luna Yoga have similar setups for in-studio classes)

Email your proof of vaccination and a signed copy of the Liability Release Form to info@iyisf.org upon registering for the first class.

Reminder: Bring Your Own Mat and Mask! Wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. Have fun!
