Iyengar Yoga is a dynamic, precise method of hatha yoga (physical poses) developed over a period of 70 years by B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, India. Iyengar is considered the foremost teacher and authority on hatha yoga in the world. His scientific approach to yoga is particularly relevant to our western culture. In the rigorous, balanced yoga poses, weak parts are strengthened and stiff areas are stretched, thus awakening and realigning the whole body. As the body moves into better alignment, less muscular work is required and relaxation occurs naturally.

The essence of Iyengar Yoga is in the execution of the poses, not the poses themselves. Emphasis on precision, bodily alignment, strength and flexibility distinguish this system from other yoga systems. The awareness gained leads to control over mind and body and reduction of stress and anxiety. Classes end with a deep, guided relaxation. Explore the joy of yoga yourself!

Bonnie Anthony has been teaching yoga since 1973 and is a founder of Iyengar Yoga in Southern California. She has served on the Board of Trustees of the Southern California and National Iyengar Yoga Associations, as an assessor for Iyengar Yoga Certification, on the staff of the 3-year Yoga Training program of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles, chaired the 2nd North American Iyengar Yoga Convention in 1990, and conducts workshops in other states. Bonnie holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar Teaching Credential.

Linda Nishio has practiced yoga for over 12 years. She has studied with Bonnie since 1995 and previously in Northern California with Senior Intermediate Iyengar teacher, Elise Miller. Linda holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree, is a professional artist, owns a graphic design business and is an art educator. Her perceptual acuity merges naturally with the attention to detail found in the Iyengar tradition.

Our teachers continue training by attending conventions, and travelling regularly to India to study with B.K.S. Iyengar, his daughter Geeta, and son, Prashant.
