Adeline Yoga is honored to welcome our teacher of teachers!
To be able to reach a meditative state in an asana, the dynamics of the asana need to be understood.
Janet will use props to deepen your understanding of poses you do every day so they are more sustainable. This will allow you to move away from the struggling and striving mode to one of mental tranquility.

Janet MacLeod began studying yoga in the late 1970’s in London. She became a Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor in 1983 and has continued to study since then with the Iyengar family both in the West and in India. She teaches ongoing classes at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco (IYISF); is on the faculty of the teacher training program there; is an assessor for the National Certification of yoga instructors; and conducts workshops and retreats worldwide. As well as teaching all over the US, Janet has taught in Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Morocco, Italy, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Japan and Scotland. Recently, she 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 for 850 students studying 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.

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:
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 4 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:
