Yoga with the Chair with Janet Macleod
November 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Adeline Yoga is honored to welcome our teacher of teachers!
Saturday, November 13th : 2 – 4 pm PST on Zoom
A Benefit Workshop for Adeline Yoga’s Yoga Blessings Fund
In Iyengar Yoga the chair is one of our most beloved props.
There are many uses for a chair in Yoga:
• makes Asana more relaxing;
• teaches how to do an Asana correctly;
• can make the Asana more demanding as it encourages us to practice with true alignment.
Janet will teach a sequence which includes all categories of Asana on the chair – including back extensions, forward extensions, twists and inversions. We hope you will have pleasant dreams of the chair prop the night of the workshop!
Recommended: One year of consistent study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Janet MacLeod began studying yoga in London during the late 1970’s and continues to study with the Iyengar family both in the West and in India. She has been a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) since 1983.
She teaches ongoing classes at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco (IYISF) and is also an assessor for the National Certification Committee. This provides her with a deep understanding of Iyengar Yoga.
Born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, Janet has travelled to many parts of the world offering workshops and retreats. She has also taught at the Yoga Journal conference in San Francisco.
Before devoting herself to teaching exclusively, Janet was the Program Director at IYISF. In 2001 she co-chaired the National Iyengar Yoga Conference in Pasadena where 850 students studied under Geeta S. Iyengar (BKS Iyengar’s daughter).
Her style of teaching is faithful to the ancient tradition of yoga, but is infused with love and light. Janet believes in sharing the joy that she has found in yoga with all who come in contact with her. This along with the technical skills she has accumulated over many years of personal practice, study and teaching make her a much sought after teacher wherever she goes.
ABOUT THE YOGA BLESSINGS FUND:
Adeline Yoga is committed to supporting diversity in our yoga community and social justice. The Yoga Blessings Fund is a scholarship program that encourages participation in Iyengar Yoga at Adeline Yoga. The Fund offers partial and full scholarships for nearly any class or workshop. It primarily focuses on deep studies programs such as Yoga for Life and teacher training opportunities including Sadhana Studies.
We established this fund in 2012 for several reasons:
- to provide access and support to people who come from backgrounds that are not well represented in most yoga studios
- to support current students if they lose a job or experience financial hardship
- to support those who want a deeper yoga education, but cannot afford the entire cost of longer programs
- to support newer students who cannot attend the community classes due to their schedule.
Scholarships in the Yoga Blessing Fund are not based solely on need. We are committed to broadening access to yoga by encouraging practitioners who come from backgrounds that are not well represented in most yoga studios, or who come from communities that might be less familiar with the benefits of a yoga practice. These scholarships are an invitation to participate. Students of color, those living with disabilities or who identify as LGBTQ are especially encouraged to inquire about this opportunity.
The Yoga Blessings Fund is one part of a comprehensive approach to accessibility and community engagement. For example, we have 3 sliding-scale community classes every week, social justice programming including a teachers group and speaker series, and an active workstudy program.
Our Yoga Blessings fund is the scholarship arm of our social justice initiatives.
It is administered according to:
- Financial need. Financial need is defined as the inability to pay the full tuition fee for the program, based on an individual’s total financial situation (This should include assets and cash flow).
- Currently enrolled students of Adeline Yoga.
- Under-represented populations at the studio/Iyengar yoga.
The Yoga Blessings program is funded in three ways:
- Income from overall studio sales.
- Current students donate classes and money.
- Fundraising events such as this.
