No one is too stiff, too out of shape, or too old to begin Iyengar yoga. You are welcome here regardless of your fitness level, age or abilities. We will help you find the right teacher and the right approach for you.

News from Our Studio

After careful consideration we have realized we are not able to handle all that it would take to safely open our studio doors at this time.  All classes will continue online for the Summer Quarter.

We just completed 12 days of fabulous online workshops during what would have usually been our summer break. These are currently being edited and will be uploaded soon for purchase. Check out the flyer:

purchase workshops on Namastream. Simply “Browse Shop” below “My  Products” on your home page.  It is yours to keep and re-watch as often as you like.

Namastream Sign Up Here!

follow the steps below to access online classes…

1. Namastream (our platform) is designed for use with the Google Chrome browser. Load Chrome in advance if you do not already use it. (Other browsers may work, but picture and sound quality suffer noticeably.)

2. Create a Namastream/IYIP User Account.  Just below is the link to the login page where you make your password. Alternately, access it via our website menu as “Online Learning”.

3. Under “Products” click on “Day Pass – Live Classes Here!”.   On the next page you will find an orange “BUY” button (top right, below the image of students).   Enter your credit card information on the left. If you have a coupon code for discounted classes enter it on the right side of the page then click the “CHECK” button below to apply it. Then click “Register Product” on the left side of the page.

4. To take your class, go into the “Day Pass – Live Classes Here!” product and click on “Events”. (It automatically lands on the “content” page where you can access documents and previously recorded classes, but for streaming broadcast classes you want to go to “events”.)  There you will see the scheduled classes. When the teacher has started the event (usually 15 minutes prior to the start time) the “Join Session” button will turn orange. Click it. You will see and hear the teacher. She will not hear or see you. Your chat messages will be public.
5. Logon early your first few times so Sara will have time to help if you should have questions.  If you have difficulties text Sara at (412) 401-2162, before the class start time.

IYIP Classes


Our classes have three focus areas:

Beginner to advanced yoga practice

Yoga therapy and rehabilitation

Stress management

IYIP classes run in 12-week sessions with a short break between quarters. Most classes build sequentially throughout the quarter, but you are welcome to begin or drop in at any point.

Class Descriptions

You can pre-register and pay for classes using IYIP’s Namastream Website or pay at class time with cash or check made out to Iyengar Yoga Institute of Pittsburgh (IYIP). No need to call ahead; just come a few minutes early for your first class to meet your teacher and fill out our New Student Registration form.
