JANET began her study of Iyengar Yoga in the late 70’s in London. Upon her arrival in San Francisco a few years later, she enrolled in the Teacher Training Program offered by the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. She became a CIYT in 1983 and that year took her first trip to the Mother Institute in Pune, India. She has studied with the Iyengar family ever since, both in India and while attending Yoga Conferences in the USA and abroad. She has taught ongoing classes in San Francisco and teaches workshops and retreats worldwide. Janet believes in the transformational power of yoga and shares her experience in a joyful way to each and every student she has the privilege of teaching. Janet continues to study with the Iyengar family, most recently when she attended the April, 2019 Intensive in Mexico City with Abhijata Iyengar.

The Essence of Practice

Five Month Advanced Studies Program


with David Sirgany


Aug. 24-25  |  Oct. 19-20  |  Dec. 7-8

Saturday 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm
Sunday 11:00 am – 3:00 pm


“The Essence of Practice” During this 5-month course of study, students will explore the 8 limbs of yoga as presented in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Particular attention will be placed on helping each person to develop the values and skills required to deepen in the practice. This involves practical applications of asana, pranayama, meditation and their philosophical underpinnings.

Students and teachers from all yogic traditions will benefit from the opportunity to dedicate an extended and focused period of time to discover for themselves the value of yoga as a complete system of practice and living. All participants will commit to working together in a way that embodies the practice values needed to sustain a sincere, committed, open-minded inquiry in a supportive and compassionate environment.

This program is especially well suited for students and teachers who have completed the 2018 Essence of Practice program at The Yoga Solution. Other students of yoga with interest in the following are encouraged to join the 2019 program:
• Deepening your experience and understanding of asana & pranayama
• Cultivating the spiritual dimension of yoga
• Establishing clarity, continuity, and a life affirming practice
• Developing skills for the practical application of yogic values and philosophy in everyday living

David Sirgany is an ardent practioner of Iyengar Yoga for thirty years, whose depth and passion for the subject shine forth brightly in his teaching. He has studied on numerous occasions directly with BKS Iyengar and his family in India, and teaches both nationally and internationally.

Cost: $550 (after Aug. 10th: $600)
