Moving into the Light
A Benefit Workshop for Adeline Yoga’s Yoga Blessings Fund
Celebrate the winter solstice, 2019! In the northern hemisphere this is a very significant date. Janet grow up in the north of Scotland where this season change was something that everyone looked forward to – moving into the light.
We can look at our yoga practice in a similar way – we learn to move out of the darkness into the light. This can be both on a physical and psychological level.
In this three hour workshop Janet will focus on asanas which will help you to make the transition to the light.
The proceeds from the workshop will do its part to bring the light of yoga into the lives of some who may not have the means to enjoy it without the Yoga Blessing Fund.

This class is appropriate for all levels of students

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
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.

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.
