Transforming Lives Through Yoga

The mission of Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California is to study, teach, disseminate and promote the art, science and philosophy of Yoga according to the teaching of B.K.S. Iyengar. We aim to foster a flourishing yoga community throughout the northern California region from as far north as Chico to as far south as Fresno, including our Hawaiian community. Our large community of certified teachers offer classes and workshops for all - from those new to yoga to those wanting to deepen their practice to those called to teach. We are a non-profit organization serving the entire northern California region and Hawaii.

Geeta S. Iyengar

December 7, 1944 - December 16, 2018

Yoga sadhaka. Devoted disciple. Selfless teacher.

Geeta S. Iyengar passed away in the early morning December 16th. By sheer strength of will and devotion to her father’s teachings, Geetaji fulfilled her heartfelt wish to celebrate Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar’s 100th birthday.  She completely poured herself into 1200+ students, teaching one and all with brilliance, vigor, and sensitivity.  Her radiant teaching captivated and soaked the room in the essence of yoga. Themes of honesty and togetherness were threaded throughout the 10-days centenary celebrations with Prashant and Geeta. While there is deep sadness for our loss, we can move forward in unison with gratitude and love. Her profound contribution to the field of yoga and the countless lives she has touched continue onward. 

Forever in our hearts, may her journey be in peace.


Northern California Fire Relief Efforts

After the recent tragic fires, we are all looking for ways that we can help. In order to come together as a community and to raise funds for those who have lost everything, including several of our own teachers and students, we have helped organize Fire Relief Benefit workshops and classes throughout our Association’s (IYANC) Northern California region.
