History of yoga in Brighton & Hove

The first (Iyengar) yoga studio opened in the city in 1969 – 48 years ago! Since then, the yoga community has grown and grown. But who started it? Who were the early teachers in the city? How did it become so big that “everyone in Brighton knows someone who does yoga”?

We have a project to write up the fascinating history of yoga in Brighton & Hove so that it is available to all

Can you help? Do you know about any aspect of the past history of yoga in the city? Would you be interested in helping research it, interviewing people about it and writing it all up in an accessible & interesting way?
