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.

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.
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.
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).
Please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
