Located in central Canberra, Yoga Mandir was established by Alan Goode in January 2005. Reflecting the growth and development of its programs, Yoga Mandir became an Institute in 2011 with the blessing of BKS Iyengar.
The Institute has established learning pathways for students of Yoga who have different levels of experience. The ongoing review and development of Institute programs is supported through teacher access to a well established research library and ongoing research work. The Institute also contributes significantly to the teacher assessment and strategic planning activities of Iyengar Yoga Australia.
