Karl Erb died peacefully in his sleep yesterday. Karl was a long-time part of the yoga community in San Francisco and taught Iyengar Yoga at Yoga Garden SF for several years and recently was a philosophy teacher in our yoga teacher training program.
Karl navigated life with illness for many years and embodied the greatest benefit of yoga practice and study: insight into living each moment fully and consciously, even at the end.
A memorial service will be held according to Karl’s wishes in September. Donations in memory of Karl can be made to Arsha Vidya Gurukulam Institute of Vedanta & Sanskrit
