The Iyengar Association of New York (IYAGNY), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was formed by a dedicated and inspired group of teachers and practitioners in 1987 as a regional branch of the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS).
Now in its 25th year, IYAGNY is primed for expansion. With an annual operating budget of $1.4M, and offering more than 70 classes per week to hundreds of students at all levels from its flagship teaching Institute in Chelsea, it serves approximately 1,500 members in the four states of its charter—New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. It will open its second facility in Brooklyn in summer 2013.
Reporting to the board of directors, the executive director (ED) will have the overall strategic and operational responsibility for IYAGNY's staff, programs, expansion, and the implementation of IYAGNY's mission: to support the teaching of Iyengar yoga throughout our region, to establish a central place for study and teaching that would embody the highest standards of a transformational practice of yoga, and to connect our practitioners with others in the United States, throughout the world and to the source of our inspiration, B.K.S. Iyengar, our teacher.
