Deptford's Iyengar Yoga Institute South London will be hosting a discounted workshop on Sunday 25th February, with a student price of £20 for a full day including vegetarian lunch.

The Iyengar Yoga Institute South London is instantly recognisable at 470 New Cross Road and contrasts the busy chaos of Deptford and New Cross. It was opened by B.K.S. Iyengar in December 1995, before yoga’s surge in celebrity attention, and is run by members of the local community. 

Marion Sinclair, who took over management of the Institute at the beginning of last year, said, ‘From the time it first opened in New Cross the aim was to make yoga accessible to everyone.

‘The Institute has always had a huge mix of yoga students – all ages and backgrounds reflecting the mix of people who live in Deptford and the surrounding areas.’

Originally the site of the New Cross Building Society, the Institute has seen the local area expand and grow over time.

‘We have seen Deptford starting to change over the past few years – at the moment the addition of new cafes and shops adds positively to what is a diverse vibrant area. We want it to stay that way.’
