Special Early Bird Rate for IYNZ Members – Ends 30 September 2022

Iyengar Yoga Australia (IYA) is delighted to be bringing Abhijata Iyengar to teach at our IYA Convention in February 2023. Given this is a short trip by Abhijata we are also pleased to open our Convention to our New Zealand yoga friends.

The IYA 2023 Convention will be held on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast at the Novotel Twin Waters resort from 8-12 February 2023. Registrations are now open including an Early Bird rate of $1380 which we are making available to members of the Australian and New Zealand Iyengar Associations only. The Early Bird ends on 30/09/22 and is to be paid in full by that date.

Participants will need to take care of their own travel and accommodation needs. With regards accommodation, there are many options near the resort including hotels, camping grounds, AirBnBs and share houses.
