IYANC is Celebrating 50 years !

Dear IYANC/IYISF Community,

IYISF has a 50 year history – a testimony to the enduring meaning and value of what we bring to the city of San Francisco, Northern California and beyond!

We are currently raising funds to establish a new studio for our students to learn, practice, and build community.

Can we count on your support to help us establish our new home for years to come?

During the past four years, we’ve adapted to the changes brought about by the pandemic. We’ve shown resilience and stewardship, weathering the pandemic’s waves and challenges.  But we couldn’t do it without your help!

As a small non-profit, we depend on donations from people like you to continue our community programming and support our operations. Please consider what Iyengar Yoga and IYANC/IYISF has brought to your life. No donation is too small. 

Donations can be made at by clicking HERE or by check mailed to PO Box 590068 San Francisco, CA 94159. Please contact info@iyisf.org for more information.

Thank you for being an important part of our community! 

With Gratitude,  

Your IYANC Board of Directors

Dear IYISF Community -

We have exciting news! We have identified some potential new studio spaces to lease in San Francisco and continue to look for other possible options. We are currently negotiating with the landlords at a few properties but please know that this is an active, on-going process.

In preparation for a potential move, we are reorganizing and raising the funds necessary so that we may eventually close on leasing a new space for our community.  

Please consider donating to our 50th Anniversary Fund. Your donations support our ongoing operations, community programming, free community events and regional scholarships.

Thank you for being a valuable part of our community!

With Gratitude,
Your IYANC Board
