It’s a very valuable service, your institute offers. Great instructors and zoom works for me because I live outside SF. I cannot pay the regular drop-in prices but I do attend as many of the community yoga classes as I am able to since they are affordable for me. Thank you! ~Diane N.
*For those who can afford to, please consider supporting the Institute by continuing to pay standard prices to attend these classes.
In our effort to bring Iyengar Yoga classes to a wider audience in San Francisco, IYISF has partnered with Armando Luna Yoga Studio in BayView-Hunters Point, a community that had been beyond the reach of the Institute from the Sutter Street studio location. With support from donors, we are pleased to offer these 2 weekly in-person classes. Register for each month or a single class.
Wednesdays, Noon – 1:30PM • All Levels Community Yoga with Janet MacLeod (donation-based)
Sundays, 10:30 – 11:45AM • Introductory Monthly Series with Sharon Hawley (Pricing: Drop in $14 | Full $50)
Janet MacLeod’s Bay View class has been a great introduction for me. Other than that, I’ve only done special occasion classes with her, Jaki Nett or Kathy Alef – all terrific. Thanks! ~Sharon D.
A one-time Proof of Vaccination and a signed waiver is required prior to the first class. Email proof of vaccination and a signed copy of the Liability Release Form to email@example.com upon registering for class.
Review complete in-studio protocol here. (IYISF and Armando Luna Yoga have similar setups for in-studio classes)
Reminder: Bring Your Own Mat and Mask! Wear comfortable clothing, bring a water bottle and show up early (15 minutes) for class. Have fun!
Classes are held at Armando Luna Yoga Studio, 800 Innes Ave #11, San Francisco.
COVID-19 FINANCIAL HARDSHIP FUND
Financial assistance is available to support those who have experienced job loss or financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The total number of awards and amount of each (up to $75) is determined on a case-by-case basis and can be used towards purchase of an IYANC membership, an IYISF public class pass, series, and/or workshop.

The IYANC board offers a limited number of IYANC Regional Scholarships each calendar year to help make the continued learning of Iyengar Yoga accessible to members who, due to financial constraints, otherwise could not participate. Scholarship funds must be used to study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) in a program (workshop, series, advanced studies, immersion, teacher education, etc.) at a venue within the IYANC region.
