Annual Iyengar Yoga Convention for students and teachers of yoga

The 2017 Iyengar yoga convention will be taught by Jawahar Bangera, and held at the International Convention Centre, in the centre of Birmingham’s historic and vibrant cultural quarter.
I've been lucky enough to have experienced Jawahar's teaching before. He is well known for his precision and is one of Iyengar's most senior and experienced teachers. 
So if you want to feel inspired and move more deeply in your yoga then join me at the 2017 convention:

IY(UK) Convention Timetable
The convention will take place over three days - there is no option to book individual days. 
The event is designed to include all students and teachers together rather than separating teachers and students.

Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC)
The ICC is situated in centenary square, a lovely wide pedestrian space, next door to Europe’s biggest new Library, with its striking architecture,  relaxing herb roof garden, and housing the remarkable Shakespeare Memorial Room. ICC is a few minutes walk from Birmingham’s landmark museum, and 20 minutes walk from the recently transformed New Street Station, taking 3.5 hours by train from Bishop's Stortford (changing at Cambridge), or 2 hours by car (we can car pool & share the fuel costs).

Accommodation
Accommodation in central Birmingham will be mainly in larger hotels, so the IYA have appointed an accommodation agent to manage the bookings for us. The less expensive hotels will book up quickly, so we must book soon.

Yoga Social, Film and Food Evening
There's a social event on the Sunday evening of the Convention. An Indian vegetarian meal and the film Leap of Faith, converting the yoga hall into a small cinema/restaurant for the evening. Leap of Faith spans 9 decades of Guruji’s life and 70 years of his practice and teaching. 

Costs
All classes over 3 days: £195
Social evening: £22.50
Convention t-shirt: £15

Please contact me asap if you would like to book for this event. I will be booking my place and accommodation over the Christmas break. It would be fab for a few of you guys to share the experience, teaching and wisdom of this phenomenal yogi.

  2. Business meetings play a critical role in terms of greasing the wheels of commerce, so it's essential that you recognize just how important they are. You may be tempted to see them as a bit of a chore, but with the best meeting space San Francisco you can make the right impression.
