The Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles provides ongoing classes, workshops, continuing education, and community events. Unfortunately, class fees alone cannot sustain us. The Institute needs your help to nurture our mission to promote and expand the study, practice, and teaching of Iyengar Yoga.

Donations can be made in two ways, either to a general fund with unrestricted monies to support the Institute, or to our $35 for 35 Years Fundraiser.

Donate to the Institute

Monies in the general fund are used to support the Institute, including studio maintenance and improvements, ongoing General Operations, and paid staff positions. Funds also help with ongoing maintenance of a high-quality supply of props (bolsters, blankets, blocks, belts, mats, ropes and other therapeutic props). The use of props is one of Mr. Iyengar’s unique contributions to the teaching of yoga.

Donate to our $35 for 35 Years Fundraiser

Contributions to the $35 for 35 Years Fundraising Campaign help raise $50,000 to support upgrades and renovations to the Institute. Our plan for facilities improvements includes upgrading and replacing props, refreshing the changing rooms and installing lockers to secure personal belongings, adding seating in the lobby to support community gatherings, new dimmable lighting throughout, and new retail shelving.

We need your support to make these things happen. Please consider a tax-deductible donation of $35 or multiples of $35.  You may keep giving on a weekly or monthly basis for even more support!
