About the Association

Mission Statement

The B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga Association of New Zealand (IYANZ) 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 teacher training programme and assessment procedures for New Zealand teachers.

The IYANZ is part of the world-wide network of 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 Associations have been established in Mr Iyengar’s name, and are officially recognised and endorsed by him.

“Yoga is an art, a science and a philosophy. It touches the life of man at every level: physical, mental, spiritual. It is a practical method for making one's life purposeful, useful and noble.”
