2014 Yogathon and Mary Dunn Celebration

Take It To Another Level!

Sunday, June 1, 2014

The Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York is hosting its 10th Annual Yogathon and Mary Dunn Celebration! This is our biggest community event of the year featuring certified teachers and students performing dynamic demonstrations and celebrating the remarkable life and legacy of our Senior Teacher and Founder Mary Dunn who passed away in 2008.

Funds raised this year through the Yogathon will support the creation of a new home for the Institute of New York on the 2nd Floor of our current building at 150 W. 22nd Street in Manhattan. Our new Institute will feature expanded studio space, higher ceilings, greater accessibility and visibility and a new student resource library.

Make a general donation here to the Yogathon Event or pledge to support your favorite teacher. To pledge for a specific teacher, be sure to “dedicate” your donation when prompted or contact the Institute of New York at 212-691-YOGA or email yogathon@iyengarnyc.org.
