The Iyengar  Yoga Institute is happy to announce a series of workshops to benefit our move to 2201 Sutter Street. All proceeds go toward funding the buildout of our new building. These will be led by a number of familiar instructors as well as a few guest instructors, many of whom are alumni of the Advanced Studies/Teacher Training program!
