Honoring Iyengar


Yoga Garden SF owner, David Nelson, celebrates the life and contributions of B K S Iyengar (December 14, 1918 – August 20, 2014)…

Today, we lost one of the great masters of yoga, Mr. B.K.S. Iyengar. I am sad for the ending of an era, a generation of incredible innovation in yoga, an epic of service. In the passing of Mr. Iyengar, we lose a wonderful model of all that is important in our practice of yoga and growth through life: great discipline and dedication, innovation that defines today’s yoga movement and honors yoga’s heritage, service and humility to all of mankind, genius insight into the shaping of a world-wide movement of expanded consciousness.

Why a Yoga School?

by David Nelson

Yoga teacher using skeleton to teach anatomy to yoga teacher training students at Yoga Garden San Francisco, a yoga school in San Francisco Bay Area

Yoga Garden SF may be a quaint boutique neighborhood yoga studio to you. We love that, but we like to think of ourselves as more than that. We call ourselves a yoga school because much of what we do at the Garden is scholastic: research and training through a structured, accredited curriculum, offering yoga teacher certification. Studio and school live under one roof because they need each other. more »
