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 path for you.

News from Our Studio

We are unable to safely open our studio doors at this time.  All classes continue online for the Autumn Quarter. We are hoping to hold a few in-person classes in January. Fingers crossed.

There are no live classes September 28, 29 and 30. However, Sara has just loaded a variety of new videos for your practice pleasure into the included content section. So logon to Namastream today, and crack em open!

Fall Quarter begins on Thursday, October 1st. Please sign up for classes as attendance was dangerously low in September – it was literally cut in half from previous months.  We need your support and participation at this time.

Also be sure to “Browse Shop” (below “My Products”) on your Namastream home page to see what workshops are available for purchase. Workshops are yours to keep and re-watch as often as you like.  This flyer shows the list of possible workshops at a glance.

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.
