Who can join?

Anyone. If you have an interest in yoga and want to gain the benefits of membership you can print out and fill in an application form. This can then be sent to our Membership Secretary, enabling you to get in touch with hundreds of other like minded people across the country. Membership is entirely voluntary but we think it's well worth the effort.
