Convention 2021
23–25 July, 2021
Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmingham
aYs and TSYP: a joint event 
Plenary speaker: Martyn Neal
We’re pleased to announce this very special event for 2021, which will replace our usual convention for the year.
aYs and TSYP share a common source – Yoga in the tradition of Desikachar and Krishnamacharya. The event is being held in response to the enthusiasm from members of both organisations to come together, exchange ideas and explore their common interests. Planning the event has made us realise how much we have in common. 
The event is open to anybody – aYs and TSYP members as well as people from other Yoga backgrounds wishing to know more about how we work. 
We’re delighted that Martyn Neal, a student of Desikachar, will be our plenary speaker. Martyn will talk about his early days with Desikachar and explore the Roots and Branches theme. There will be a rich range of workshops led by teachers from both organisations and plenty of time for discussion.
The event is scheduled to take place at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, which has become our popular regular venue in the past few years. We will, of course, be monitoring the current coronavirus pandemic and let you know as soon as we can if there has to be any change in plans.
This will be a very special event and we recommend that everyone book early! 
More details will be posted early next year.
We hope very much to see many of you there…
