KIYI Donations

Posted by KIYI Web Administrator, Monday, 19th January 2015 @ 3:07pm

  • Brenda Booth, KIYI member and Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher needs no introduction to many of you. At KIYI’s workshop on Sunday 19th October where Brenda was our guest teacher, Brenda declared that she wished to donate her workshop fee to The Bellur Trust in memory of Guruji. The KIYI Committee then took a unanimous decision to add to this gesture by making an additional donation of the entire proceeds of the workshop to this cause, which was so close to his heart. This amounted to £1,340.

    On a personal note, I found it a very helpful and enjoyable workshop, more than that, it was a delight to be taught by Brenda again, who put her heart and soul into making it a pleasure to be there.

    After the workshop, the KIYI Committee voted to donate the same amount, £1,340, to the IY(UK) Development Fund.

    We were delighted to make these donations in love and appreciation of Guruji’s immense lifetime’s work. The incredibly meticulous light he shone on the practice and art of yoga has for decades inspired and benefitted many thousands of students worldwide, and will undoubtedly continue to shine for many generations to come.

Book of Condolence

Posted by Tim Godwin, Saturday, 6th September 2014 @ 7:56am

  • A book of condolence is being put together to be sent to the Iyengar family from KIYI. 

    Brenda Booth will bring it to the workshop on 19 October for any members that wish to contribute. 

A few words from our Chair, Davy Burns, following the sad news of Guruji's death

Posted by Tim Godwin, Monday, 25th August 2014 @ 5:37pm

  • Needless to say we are all sorry to hear of the recent passing away of BKS Iyengar.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Iyengar family at this time.  

    It is difficult to put into words what this sad news means to us.

    Often it is only after the death of a great artist that their work is fully appreciated.  This cannot be said of Guruji, as he was affectionately known by his students, as his achievements have been widely recognised, celebrated and documented for a long time, during his own lifetime.

    He leaves behind a rich legacy that will continue to inspire those who pursue the practice of Yoga as a way of life.

Dates for your diary!

  • It’s always good to hear feedback about our workshops and we'd like to share some of these lovely comments with you.

    "Such a wonderful and inspiring weekend with such a lovely teacher. Zubin brought such joy and enthusiasm....and plain common sense with his teaching; whilst combining it with friendliness, humourand compassion. Wonderful."
    Rosemary da Silva

    "It was a brilliant workshop, Zubin did pack a lot in.  It was good to see so many friendly faces, some familiar some new, from the Iyengar community near and far. It felt like a big extended family."    

    If you've attended a workshop and have some comments you'd like to share or some other feedback then please do contact us either via the website or
