Iyengar Yoga New Zealand, IYNZ, was established in 1993 to bring together teachers and students of Iyengar yoga. The Association has continued to maintain its foundation aims to protect, promote and foster the words and teachings of Guruji.

It has also established a thorough Iyengar Yoga teacher training programme and assessment procedures for New Zealand Iyengar Yoga teachers.

IYNZ is part of the world-wide network of Iyengar Yoga Associations that aim to bring together students and teachers who are interested in Guruji’s work, and to protect, promote and foster his words and teachings.

These Iyengar Yoga Associations have been established in Mr Iyengar’s name, and are officially recognised and endorsed by him.
