"Action is Movement with Intelligence"

B.K.S. Iyengar

June 20, 2021

Please join us for the 2021 Yogathon!  We want to share our love of Iyengar Yoga with you. 

The event is FREE to all! Please register here.

Yogathon is IYANC’s annual fundraising event supporting our mission and vision, “To promote the art, science and philosophy of yoga according to the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar” as well as fostering a flourishing Northern California Yoga community. Teachers and students across the region come together on Yogathon Day to celebrate our shared dedication to Iyengar Yoga: the practice, the lineage, and our community.

Our theme this year, “Hope, Endurance, Rejoice” speaks to the resilience of our community the past year as we navigate this pandemic. We were able to achieve:

  • 1. Maintaining our physical studio at 2201 Sutter Street, San Francisco!
  • 2. Achieve “Legacy Status” as a long standing San Francisco business, serving our community since 1974.
  • 3. Continuing to offer over 40 weekly classes with 24 CIYTs, plus workshops and community events.

While we’ve been able to accomplish these 3 major feats above, class and workshop attendance have dropped by 24%. Along with Yogathon, the community of teachers, staff and students are busy preparing and organizing the reopening of IYISF at 2201 Sutter Street! Fundraising is essential for the Institute, especially now.  Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Please donate today. And join us to REJOICE on June 20, 2021!

Join us in celebrating the IYANC/IYISF 14th Annual Yogathon!                               

2021 Sponsors
