About Manchester and District Iyengar Yoga (MDIY)

MDIY is the oldest and one of the largest Iyengar yoga organisations in the UK. We provide a wide range of opportunities for students to practise and develop their understanding of yoga and we are committed to spreading an awareness of the benefits of Iyengar yoga to as many people as possible. The organisation is managed on behalf of its members by an elected committee of teacher and student members and all members are eligible to stand for election. We rely on and encourage the involvement of volunteer members in all of our activities. We are proud to be part of the UK and world-wide Iyengar yoga organisation which has similar organisations and centres in many countries of the world.

We are run as a mutual, membership organisation. Any surplus funds made from our yoga activities are re-invested in the maintenance and development of our building, the purchase and replacement of equipment and the day-to-day operations of MDIY.

We run over 30 classes a week, for all levels and abilities, in three beautiful, fully-equipped studios. In addition, we are a teacher training and assessment centre and hold regular, monthly workshops and events run by local, national and international teachers.
