Forward bends when you can not touch your toes! Saturday 2-5pm- 10/27th


Whether you have tight hamstrings or stiff backs forward bend postures can be daunting.

During this 3-hour workshop will go over ways to overcome and better manage the physical and mental resistance of going into forward bend poses to achieve the more quietening mental aspect they bring.

We will go over basic anatomy, use of props and variations of poses, for a better experience and understanding of standing and seated forward extensions such as Pashimottanasana or Uttanasana.

This workshop is open to all levels, though some previous Iyengar yoga experience is preferred.

Pricing: $60 Members, $75 Non Members

BKS Iyengar’s daughter quoted her father shortly after his passing: “Why don’t you think of existing physically, mentally and emotionally in that asana so that it is not just a physical performance…”

During these three days, we will explore our practice of asana & its effects; going from movement to narrowing our attention into the pose and becoming present. We will look at the ways we practice: getting into, staying, developing and reflecting into the pose whether the pose is familiar or new & challenging.

This workshop is geared for students who have a year of experience or more in the Iyengar tradition, who practice inversions: Sirsasana, Salamba Sarvangasana and know to modify for their needs. Some Pranayama experience.

It is recommended that students sign up for the entire workshop. To sign up for a drop in on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, please register at the front desk or call 415-753-0909. Pricing:

$160 Members, $200 Non Members, $240 Day of Drop in, $60 Friday only, $90 Sat/Sun Drop in

Dear Students & Friends; I am raising funds for the “11th Annual Yogathon: In the Light of B.K.S. Iyengar” event which is a celebration of yoga and the annual IYANC/IYISF fundraiser event. I invite you to come on June 2nd to participate in the class (108 poses challenge!) and/or come for food & refreshments after wards and hear stories from many teachers who were fortunate to study under the tutelage of BKS Iyengar.

Please help me reach and surpass my $2,000 goal. I have been fortunate to discover yoga taking a class with an Iyengar teacher years back, and this was a life changing event: from a casual student, I took the teacher training at IYISF and eventually became a full time instructor. IYISF is a non-profit organization and depends on donations, classes & training’ revenue; and the work for our generous volunteers. Thank you, Merci and Happy Yoga! Anne


or just give me a check/cash when you see me!
