Iyengar Yoga South Bay
A class for every body!
Learn classic yoga postures focusing on alignment
We start with the body and teach classic yoga postures with an emphasis on alignment so that strength and flexibility develop concurrently. Even after one’s first class, a feeling of well-being is experienced as the ancient yogis and now modern science concur that there is a direct relationship between one’s body and mind.
From action and doing comes reflection. Over time we help the student develop greater sensitivity to what they are experiencing in the pose. We do this with specific instructions, a prop or with consent, hands on adjustment. The sensitivity and awareness that develops is the seed that enables a transformation in one’s outward pose and inner experience. Thus from your first class yoga is an evolving transformative practice.
“Words fail to convey the total value of yoga.
It has to be experienced.”
"I continue to come to yoga classes because it helps me feel good…Physically, as I near age 70, it helps me with my posture, balance, flexibility, strength and aches and pains that come with aging."
"Iyengar Yoga South Bay has super-charged my yoga practice of over 40 years.
"Jito, my instructor, has shown me how to find the awareness that allows me to know from deep inside what my body needs at a level I had never experienced. She has taught me the true meaning of yoga, and has given me the absolute desire to come to my yoga mat for the rest of my life."
"I have been practicing Iyengar Yoga with Jito in Campbell for over 5 years. I have attended both online and in studio classes. Both are very good. I especially love the positive healing energy felt in the Campbell studio. The focus of asana and pranayama practice is on healing and strengthening the body (without causing any damage), and has a long lasting positive impact on physical and mental wellness. Jito is a super experienced teacher with over 40+ years teaching and practicing yoga and you can tell by the attention to detail and the pose modifications she suggests based on every individual. I also love the fact that each class is unique focusing on one body part - head, heart, arms, hips, legs, restful… the combinations keep changing. Highly recommended to anyone looking to start or grow their yoga practice. You won’t be disappointed and will be challenged as well. Blessed to be part of the Iyengar yoga family. Aum!"
“I have been a longtime student at Iyengar Yoga South Bay. It has been my go-to place for health - in body, mind and community."
"I first experienced Iyengar Yoga when attending a session at the Rancho La Puerto Spa in Tecate Mexico as a stressed professional woman. It was then that I promised myself to do this particular yoga in retirement. Over the following years I returned there several times with friends and with my daughter.
"The month I retired I went online and found this South Bay Iyengar Studio, immediately signed up and continue to date.
"This studio has not only provided consistent challenging and fruitful classes in general but has accommodated me through car accident injuries and back surgeries.
"I am a 3 times a week 100% participant. Grateful, not only for the instruction but for the friendships developed in class.
"I found Jito in 2016 through the Art of Teaching program and I count it as a blessing. As a full time dancer, yoga was introduced to me as a means to keep the body agile and prepared for dancing. It used to be an additional practice that I did mindlessly. It was only after coming to Jito that I began to see more deeply into what this practice means and yoga has started to reveal so much more. Today, It has become a parallel practice, one that simultaneously feeds into my dancing as well as the way I look at life beyond the physical. It has influenced the way I interact with others as well as myself. Jito is a fantastic teacher whose instructions are clear and nuanced. The Iyengar Yoga South Bay community is warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend anybody wishing to start on their yoga journey to come here."
