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.

Mike has been a San Francisco resident of 24 years and happily takes advantage of the many health and wellness options the city has to offer. In addition to teaching Barre 101 classes, Mike enjoys yoga, running, and golf. Mike believes that all forms of exercise provide the perfect outlet for many of life’s challenges, whether they be physical or emotional.
He was drawn to the barre workout because of its low impact, strengthening, toning, and cardio elements. He feels that the Barre 101 class is a perfect complement for anyone who practices yoga and is excited to introduce the concept to YGSF.
