"Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim."

B.K.S. Iyengar


The Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California (IYANC) was formed by a dedicated and inspired group of teachers and practitioners in 1974. It was the first such organization in the United States, and now serves as a regional arm of the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States.

IYANC is a membership based non-profit corporation dedicated to the study, practice and teaching of Iyengar Yoga. IYANC is a 501(c)3 Not for Profit Association run by a Board of Directors. Donations to IYANC are tax-deductible. IYANC owns and operates the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco (IYISF), and represents Iyengar Yoga teachers and throughout Northern California.

We are currently working on a separate website for the regional organization that will feature information about workshops and events from across our region. Watch this space!
