Iyengar 1-2


This class is taught by:

Leslie Peters

I became a certified Iyengar teacher in 1995. I had the immense privilege of being personally instructed on several occasions by B.K.S. Iyengar, most intensively during the photo shoot for the book, “Iyengar Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health.” I love the versatility of yoga; it can be used to alleviate suffering on a physical level, but is also the most sophisticated tool for self discovery on psychological and spiritual levels as well. There is much joy to be found in the persistent practice of this transformative and noble healing art, science, and philosophy!

Anna Delury

Anna Delury is one of Southern California’s Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers and a founder of IYILA. She has traveled regularly to Pune to study with the Iyengar family since 1982. In 1988 she received a BSc. in Kinesiology from UCLA. Known for her insight and wry sense of humor, Anna brings a practical application of yoga philosophy into each class, as she helps guide students to a deeper understanding and awareness of what lies within each of them.

Becky Patel (sub)

graduated from the 3-year Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Program of Southern California and am certified at the Introductory II level. I had the great privilege of studying with Geeta Iyengar in Pune for a two-week intensive in 2014 and regularly study with many of the senior teachers including Manouso Manos and Gloria Goldberg. In my day job I am a Textile Designer and spend most of the day sitting in front of a computer. Yoga helps me combat the Ill-effects of a computer job and gives me relief from stress and fatigue. I truly believe it makes you a better person inside and out. I have a relaxed, approachable teaching style and strive to challenge students while creating a safe and welcoming environment.
For students who have a solid understanding of the fundamental poses taught in Level 1 along with a base of strength and flexibility from regular attendance. In this class, students will deepen their understanding of the mind-body connection in an expanded study of foundational poses including standing twists, backbends, and headstand.
