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
For the Winter Quarter Christina’s and Diane’s classes will be hybrid format. A hybrid class includes students in-person (in the studio) and students at home viewing the broadcast.
Sara’s classes will be online only.
COVID precautions for in-studio attendance:
Please be understanding as we are doing our best to navigate this tricky territory . Christina and Diane are teaching our hybrid classes and are asking that everyone be vaccinated. We ask that you do the following for in-studio classes:
- You will need to bring proof of vaccination to class.
- Bring your own mat (and any additional props you prefer to bring). We will still be providing props but cannot assure that all are 100% sanitized.
- Some students are wearing masks. Wear any protective gear you choose. We are not requiring masks at this time, but will reevaluate as necessary.
- Only come to the studio if you are ok with being around other vaccinated people without demanding others behave in any particular way. We will cap in-studio attendance at 20 participants. If you are uncomfortable with these parameters, please continue to enjoy our classes from home – online. We will continue to provide online learning into the future as we have students tuning in from states including Californina, Idaho, Illinois and Virginia.
