Thursday Led Class – Friday Moon Day

Just a reminder that tomorrow Thursday Sep 29 I will be teaching a led primary from 06:30 to 08:15, and Friday is a New Moon Day so no practice.


Bay Area workshops with Peter Sanson

Hi folks,

Peter Sanson kicks off his Bay Area wide workshop Friday, September 23rd. You can read more about him and look into registration for the first weekend here.

If you have never practiced with Peter, I would highly recommend attending at least one day at SF, as his time at YIY is at the end and the option won’t be there to spend much more time with him.

Additionally he is teaching at Ashtanga Yoga Berkeley 9/28 to 10/1 and 10/2 to 10/6, you can look into that here.

Finally he will be with us October 7 to 9, the last weekend, registration for his time at Yoga is Youth is here.

Time slots are filling, so do register soon to guarantee your space.


Moon Day Friday/ Led Primary on Thursday 9/15

Hi folks,

Because this Friday is a moon day,  there is no led class this Friday at 630 am, and Led Primary on Thursday instead of Friday. So, Philippe will be teaching led primary series this Thursday at 630 am. Please spread the word!

Sutra Discussion Group Sunday September 18

Dear Sutra Discussers,

We will be meeting on Sunday September 18 at 10:00 at Karen’s house, 336 W Dana St, 94041, until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to continue with Book 2 with sutras 2.7 to 2.9. To get the most out of the gathering, it is recommended to read a few translations and commentaries beforehand.

You can also listen to our previous discussions at the website.

Lunch today

We are meeting at yiy today, Saturday, 9/3 at 100 for an impromptu goodbye lunch for Ruth. Please join us if you would like.

Labor Day / Monday Schedule 7:30 – 9:30 am

Hi folks,

Because this Monday is Labor Day, we will push back the schedule to match the regular Sunday schedule, so it is 730 to 930 am. Doors will open at 600 am if you need to start earlier.

Have a good weekend and spread the word.


Meet our newest Ashtangi…


From Hannah:
My son Julian Tomasello was born on Saturday morning at 11:13am, 4 days past due (he wanted to take his time!). 8 pounds, 4 oz, 20.25″ long. Labor was pretty smooth, and everyone is happy and healthy (if sleepy!). Please feel free to spread the word to the Mysore folks.


Moon Day Wednesday August 31st

There is a moon day tomorrow, so there is no morning mysore class. Please enjoy the day of rest.

Interest in Pushpam the magazine

Hi all,

I wanted to gage interest in stocking Pushpam, it is a magazine put out by one of my teachers in the UK.

Here’s more about the magazine:

A bit similar to Namarupa, that is meant be a magazine about yoga,  as in the mental practice, not just the asana practice, with one of their guiding principles that they will not focus on how to get into an asana……

And no advertising….

If there is enough interest I can make a bulk order.


Update on Peter Sanson



Peter Sanson’s workshop registration is live and you can register for it here.

I do recommend registering early for this, especially if you prefer a specific start time, as this workshop will fill. It is something not to be missed, he is a special teacher and a real yogi.
