Iyengar Yoga

with Brian Hogencamp


Sunday, September 13, 2020

11:00 am – 1:30 pm

This is an On-line, Interactive Workshop.

B.K.S. Iyengar stated he practiced and studied each asana with respect as it is the door to insight. In this workshop we will explore the gap between what we know and what we experience, revisiting foundational asana and seeing where they go.

“No one asana is great or insignificant or unimportant. Know that each asana carries different rays of knowledge.” – B.K.S. Iyengar

The Essence of Practice

Four-Month Advanced Studies Program


On-line, Interactive Workshop Series
with David Sirgany


Oct. 31 – Nov. 1, 2020  |  Dec. 12-13, 2020  |  Feb. 6-7, 2021

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


“The Essence of Practice” During this 4-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 any prior Essence of Practice program at The Yoga Solution. Other students of yoga with interest in the following are encouraged to join the 2020 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 if paid by Oct. 17th;  $600 thereafter 

Cancellations prior to Oct. 17th will be refunded minus a $25 admin fee; No refunds after Oct. 17th unless a replacement is found.

Supported Standing Poses and Preparing for Inversions

with Janet MacLeod


Saturday, October 17, 2020 and Sunday, October 18, 2020

Saturday: 3:00 – 5:00 pm
(Asana Practice)
Sunday: 10:45 am – 11:45 am
Sunday: 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm
(Asana Practice)

Saturday: Supported Standing Poses – Janet will highlight different ways in which standing poses can be supported. When students get the experience of a more balanced posture, they are often able to reproduce the feeling without the support.

Sunday: Preparing for Inversions – Although there are times when students have physical issues which prevent them from doing inversions, more often than not it is a psychological issue – the fear of having your world turned upside down. This fear can be greatly alleviated when students build strength in arms and openness in shoulders and increased awareness of the use of the legs. This class should help students already doing inversions to have a better understanding of them and those not doing them to discover ways to get closer to these key asanas in yoga.

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 via Zoom when she attended the April, 2020 Intensive with Abhijata Iyengar.
