Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
- B.K.S Iyengar

The Sheffield And District Iyengar Yoga group, or SADIY, is one of many organisations around the world that bring together Iyengar Yoga practitioners.
Iyengar Yoga is taught in various venues across the Sheffield area. Each venue holds weekly classes as well as special workshops. Find out more about these on this site.

Online or in Covid-safe classes and workshops

Our classes and workshops are currently delivered online or in Covid-safe environments.
At present most of our yoga classes and workshops are delivered online through the Zoom platform. They are much like 'real' classes that you can attend from your home. You can see the teacher and the teacher can see all the students and provide instructions and corrections, individually or to the group.
As some Covid restrictions are being lifted some teachers are also offering blended teaching with a few places available to those who would like to attend in person. Booking essential. Please ask them for details.
Some teachers also provide additional forms of support to help everyone maintain their yoga practice (e.g., class sequences leaflets and videos sent to you through email, WhatsApps groups, Facebook pages etc.).

Our next SADIY workshop on Tuesday 21 October 2021 with Nidhi Nanda will celebrate the Winter Solstice.
