The practice of Iyengar yoga focuses on proper body alignment which allows the body to develop harmoniously in an anatomically correct way, as well as guiding the mind into the proper channels to make the body a fit vehicle for meditation. Because all bodies have different weaknesses and strengths, Iyengar Yoga applies the use of props (wooden blocks, chairs, blankets and belts) to help the body into the correct positions so that one can work in a range of motion
that is both safe and effective.
“The path which is crossed is gone in a moment, but the path which is followed goes on forever.” Tony began his yoga studies in 1978, almost 40 years ago. From the beginning until 2002 he studied at length with senior Iyengar Yoga teachers such as Judith Lasater, Manouso Manos, Kofia Busia, and Ramanand Patel. On several occasions during that time he had the great good fortune to be able to study directly under the watchful eyes of BKS Iyengar and Geeta Iyengar, both in India and here in the U.S. Tony’s personal practice and experiential understanding of the art of yoga have grown and deepened profoundly from all these teachers’ years of generosity, knowledge and acumen. Tony has been teaching in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985, for over 31 years. He teaches weekly public classes, workshops, retreats, various teacher-training programs, and advanced teachers’ consultation groups. Still going strong.
