Financial Aid and Scholarships

IYISF seeks to expand our programs to provide a variety of affordable options including low-cost Community Classes, Financial Aid and Scholarships. 

Financial Aid

Each year, the Association (IYANC) provides support to our student community in the form of financial assistance as well as through our various low-cost community classes. Financial awards are determined on a case-by-case basis and can be used towards the purchase of an IYANC membership, public class pass, series, and/or workshop. 

To apply, please email  info@iyisf.org and place in the subject line “financial aid request.” Indicate your need and the class, workshop or course for which you require assistance. 

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

IYANC 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 students who, due to financial constraints, otherwise could not participate.

Scholarship funds must be used to study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) in teacher education programming (i.e. advanced studies, immersion, teacher education, etc.) at a studio within the IYANC region.  Candidates apply here.

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
