Get to know us!

Our teachers are passionate practitioners of yoga in all its facets!  Every teacher at Adeline Yoga has a strong personal practice and knowledge base that spans over several decades.  We have a deep appreciation for India, and a close connection to its culture through the Iyengar tradition.  We use Sanskrit names for poses, and embrace all the aspects of yoga including postures, breath work, chant, ethics and yoga philosophy.  Our students often tell us they are inspired because we “live yoga”.  You will get personalized instruction every class.  Please feel free to ask questions.  We love it!

For zoom classes, you must be in the room at least 5 minutes before class.  It is really important to be “in class” at least 5 minutes early to meet the teacher and others in the room, figure out where things are for that particular class and how it feels to be in our space.  You and the teacher need that time to get settled in – they want to meet you!  We encourage you to use the “chat function” before class to share with the teacher your pronouns and any conditions you are working with.  Our classes do start on time, so those moments before class are important for connection.

If you are new to Iyengar Yoga, even if you have other yoga experience, we generally recommend that you start out by taking our Fundamentals Series or one of our specialty classes.  People with some Iyengar Yoga experience will find our noon-classes and Level 1 fabulous.  If you have studied regularly with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, a Level 2 class could be great for you. If you prefer classes that move a little slower and help you develop your mobility, we have specialty classes for you such as Healthy Bones and Restorative.

You will find Adeline Yoga to be a truly welcoming studio. We are committed to co-creating an inclusive environment to grow, learn and thrive together. Click here to read about Adeline Yoga’s Social Justice and Inclusivity Commitments.  We actively foster a community atmosphere and it is important that everyone feel comfortable at our yoga center.  This does take hard work! We are a multi-cultural studio, usually multi-lingual too.  We look forward to meeting you.

Every class starts with meditation to help you get in touch with your body and find quiet inside.  Our classes for more experienced students also include chants such as the Invocation to Patanjali. Every class ends with savasana, a deep relaxation.  And in between, we offer a carefully thought out sequence to help you find your body and breath + balance, strength, flexibility and equanimity.

about why people come to Adeline Yoga

If you are new to the Iyengar method of yoga, we invite you to learn more about our background.


Here are answers to commonly asked questions about our studio.

[accordion title=”What can I expect in class?”]New students should arrive 15 minutes early to register and get settled in. Classes begin exactly at the scheduled times, so it is important to be inside the studio ready to begin on time. You will need to allocate time to get set up for class, say hello to the teacher and get settled in. Give yourself time for this so that you don’t miss any of your yoga practice.[/accordion][accordion title=”What about food and drink?”]It does not feel good to do yoga with a full stomach. Try not to eat a big meal less than two hours before class. If you do need a snack before class, try something light.

It is wise to come to class well hydrated. For safety reasons, beverages and water bottles are not allowed on the studio floor. You are welcome to keep them with your other belongings. [/accordion][accordion title=”What should I wear?”]Wear comfortable clothes that are not baggy. Start with a t-shirt or tank top, paired with shorts or leggings. Form-fitting outfits are best, so the teacher will be able to see your postures and help you with alignment. Wearing layers is good too, so you can stay warm in the resting poses. No footwear is needed: yoga is practiced barefoot.[/accordion][accordion title=”What class should I go to?”]Our class descriptions page gives complete specifics to help you choose the best class for you.  Feel free to contact us to get recommendations particular for you – email or call us (510) 982 – 1873.  [/accordion][accordion title=”What if I have special concerns or physical problems?”]This practice is open to all people and all abilities. Please let your instructor know before class starts of your special needs. We will gladly work within your range of movements and assist your practice and health to new heights.  If you are menstruating, pregnant or not feeling well, please let us know.  Certain poses are contraindicated and other poses will help in these situations – we will show you.  That said, yoga may not be appropriate for certain acute injuries or illnesses. If you are not sure about your specific condition, ask your doctor and email us at

Some students do like to take a private yoga lesson with a teacher prior to visiting Adeline Yoga. Other students enjoy pairing occasional private lessons with attending regular group classes. Private lessons are usually hour-long sessions with an expert teacher. They will help you develop confidence and learn yoga that fits your needs. To schedule a private lesson, please e-mail us.

Please note that if you are ill with a cold or flu, it is best to stay at home. While we can offer you a sequence if you are recovering from illness, it is best to not attend class when you may be contagious.[/accordion][accordion title=”When can I start?”] You are welcome to drop in to any regular class. You can signup for your class online. Click here to get started. Email if you need help.

We recommend ALL new students take the Yoga Fundamentals course within the first weeks of joining the studio. You will learn the names of the poses and what to practice at home during this course.  Please check the current schedule for when the next Fundamentals course will begin.

Students are encouraged to make a commitment to attend class regularly. If you have injuries or illnesses, are menstruating or pregnant, please let the teacher know at the beginning of class so we can make class comfortable and appropriate for you.

We are very happy that you are considering visiting Adeline Yoga. Please contact us if we can help in any way.[/accordion]
