Jeremiah Wallace’s Practice and Teaching Embody a Synergy of Yoga Styles
We are excited to offer Anusara Yoga at Yoga Garden of San Francisco starting August 21st. Anusara means “flowing with grace,” which reflects the focus of each class. Universal priciples of alignment are applied to the instruction of poses to connect to the grand purposes of yoga, to create awareness of specific postural alignment, and to foster balanced action between stability and freedom. Movements and actions within every pose are coordinated with the breath. Level 1-2 classes are appropriate for beginners to intermediate students. more »
Meet Some of our Prenatal Yoga Graduates
Have you noticed a lot of pregnant women at the Yoga Garden? (There are a lot, because we think yoga is great for everybody.) We thought you might like to see some of the new babies that got to do yoga in the womb. What a great start to life!
This picture was taken by one of the mothers of these children, who have gathered once a month since they were born earlier this year.
Congratulations to the Graduates of Yoga Garden’s 200-hour Advanced Studies Teacher Training program. We welcome them to ranks of women and men committed to sharing their passion, insight and gratitude for the practice of yoga and mindfulness.
Yoga Garden SF celebrates the completion of the third and final prenatal teacher training program in 2010, led by YGSF teacher Marisa Toriggino. Participants spend 25 hours in intensive study of prenatal specialization, plus 10 hours of teaching practice, 6 hours of in-class observation and assistance, and they complete a final exam. Graduates who have additionally completed a minimum of a 200-hour yoga teacher training are then certified by YGSF to teach prenatal yoga.

“…we are all unique, and I recognize that there is no “one size fits all” solution for anything that is important in life, especially when it comes to personal evolution. I was moved by Eric Shaws article “35 Moments” in the latest edition of Yoga Journal. In just a few pages, Eric manages to convey the vast landscape of yoga stretching back thousands of years, framed in terms of prominent events, teachers, and achievements. So what I do is just a drop in this ocean of yoga. Well, it may be a tiny drop, but its great to be a part of that ocean.”

We need your expertise, your compassion, and your sparkling personality! We’re seeing a lot of new faces around here these days and we think these folks need a hand getting their feet on the ground (sorry for all the appendages there). Would you be willing to be a Yoga Buddy? It’s low commitment–we’ll match you up with a new comer (typically someone who has shared a class with you), and we’ll share email addresses and names and you take it from there. They want to know the best classes to go to, how much to practice, etc. You might even make a new friend (hey, I met my wife through yoga). Just let us know if you are interested by completing the short form below and we’ll take it from there.
