SADIYA

All about the association

SADIYA was set up in 2001 to support Iyengar yoga in Sheffield and surrounding districts. It aims to bring together Iyengar Yoga practitioners in and around Sheffield, promote the benefits and therapeutic aspects of yoga and ensure people can learn yoga with well-trained and qualified Iyengar yoga teachers.

Becoming a Member of SADIYA

You don’t have to be a member of SADIYA to participate in the classes and events it supports. Anyone can attend, but SADIYA members do get certain benefits.

As a SADIYA member, you will:

  • automatically have membership of the Iyengar Yoga (IY (UK) ) association (worth £18.50 at individual rate) and receive their bi-annual magazine - Iyengar Yoga News
  • be invited to vote and contribute your view at the SADIYA Annual General Meeting
  • receive the SADIYA newsletters twice a year (edited and written by local Iyengar yoga students and teachers)
  • be entitled to a discount on SADIYA yoga days (a £8 saving for each day). We have around three days a year, with a visiting teacher
  • borrow items from the SADIYA library
  • become part of the growing Iyengar community around Sheffield.

Membership runs from 1 April to 31st March and costs £15 per year (£8 for those on low income and those who are already affiliated to the IY (UK)).
If you do the sums, you will see that it is well worth the cost.
Here is the membership form for 2017-18 with all the details on how to join SADIYA.

SADIYA Library

About the SADIYA Library

The SADIYA library is located in a cupboard in the middle room at the Sheffield Yoga Centre. It consists of books, videos and DVDs, and journals – mostly the 13 past editions of the SADIYA newsletter. The books include ancient and modern, classic and popular texts. Many of the videos and DVDs are the filmed yoga workshops and conventions led by the Iyengar family which have been held over the years throughout the world.

Borrowing

Centre users are welcome to browse but only members are able to borrow. We rely on an honour system for borrowing. The loan period for all items is 4 weeks and borrowers are asked to note down what they borrow in the loan book. They are then expected to return the item on the date specified so it will be available for others. If you are not a member of SADIYA please join us – borrowing from the library is one of the membership benefits.

What’s available

A full list of the library collection can be downloaded here and found in the library cupboard at the Centre. This list will be updated regularly (last updated March 2016).

Development

Please contact us via email (anschutz_knowles@btinternet.com) with any suggestions for improvements or ideas. We also welcome donations – these could be books, videos, journals, magazines, publicity and information from other Iyengar yoga centres.

If you would like to become involved in the development of the library do get in touch with Caroline Anschutz.

Newsletters

Here we provide back issues of our newsletters, in PDF format. Note that any class dates etc. in these newsletters are out of date. Check the web pages for recent info.

The newsletters are also for sale at the Sheffield Yoga Centre ('old' ones - £1 each and most recent ones - £2 each) - even if you are not a SADIYA member!
