Thank you all who attended the special event with Patricia Walden and Manouso Manos on March 23rd, 2015.  It was a packed house of new friends and old who came to hear a conversation with Patricia and Manouso about the evolution of yoga in the United States. Monica Desai-Henderson acted as our skilled moderator. See photos on Facebook here.

This talk was generously donated by Patricia Walden and Manouso Manos in support of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California. The Association’s (IYANC’s) mission is to continue to legacy of yoga in the lineage of the great Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar.

Please consider SUPPORTING OUR MISSION WITH A DONATION in honor of this talk. We asked for a $25 donation at the live event but any amount is greatly appreciated.

Patricia and Manouso also generously donated their time for a smaller luncheon earlier in the day.  A big thank you to Asriel and Carmela Levin who hosted the lunch and provided all the food and beverages.  Carmella prepared the gourmet lunch, three courses followed by a fabulous desert (a delicious tiramisu).

Between these two events we raised over $10,000 in support of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California. A deep bow of gratitude to Patricia and Manouso as well as all the staff at the Jewish Community Center of SF who made this happen!
