Janet MacLeod Workshop, Noveber 15-17, 2013
Join us for Janet’s return to Sunset Yoga Center!
In Janet’s workshop we will work in-depth with all of the categories of asana. We will also explore yoga philosophy and pranayama. The asana workshop is open to all students with at least one year of Iyengar Yoga experience.
Janet was certified as an Iyengar Yoga instructor in 1983. She continues to study with the Iyengar family in India and in the west having attended many conventions. Her teaching style is demanding on all levels; this combined with her ability to create a joyful atmosphere in class has a transformative effect on students.
She teaches classes to the general public in San Francisco; teaches in the Teacher Training Program at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco (IYISF) and conducts retreats and workshops worldwide.
Although Janet is involved with yoga much of the time she has other interests including her birth place – the isle of Skye, Scotland; roses; her cats jasmine and tesla; preparing healthy organic vegetarian meals – especially salads and developing her exotic shoe collection.

Additional information about Janet:
On one of her many trips to Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family, Janet attended an event at which the City of Pune acknowledged BKS Iyengar for his contribution to the city. It turns out that he is a great philanthropist, donating to meaningful causes and supporting his local community with contributions matching those of the big industrialists. He has also been involved in building up the poor town of Bellur, his birthplace, providing education and healthcare to the residents. Janet was impressed by her guru’s generosity and dedication to service and was inspired to make a difference to her community on a much smaller scale. She donates a great deal of time to the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco, a traditional school for both teaching students and training students to become teachers. Teachers trained at the Institute teach yoga in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. She has also taught workshops to benefit the SF Aids Foundation, Breast Cancer Action, UNICEF drive for clean drinking water worldwide and St. Martin de Porres Food Bank. A firm believer that yoga does not begin and end on the mat, Janet uses her skill as a teacher to make a difference in her community.
