Janet MacLeod

Certified as an Iyengar Yoga Instructor in 1983, she continues to study with the Iyengar family in India and in the West having attended many conventions. Her teaching style is demanding on all levels; this combined with her ability to create a joyful atmosphere in class has a transformative effect on students.

She teaches classes to the general public in San Francisco; teaches in the Teacher Training Program at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco and conducts retreats and workshops worldwide.

Although Janet is involved with yoga much of the time she has other interests including her birth place - the Isle of Skye, Scotland; roses; her cats, Jasmine and Tesla; preparing healthy organic vegetarian meals - especially salads and developing her exotic shoe collection.


Over the years, Janet has donated gift certificates for yoga classes to support school fund raising activities. These gifts certificates are popular items at fund raising events and are a good source for much needed contributions. If you are involved in fund raising for your child's school, please send an email to Janet and request a gift certificate for 10 Iyengar style yoga classes (value $150.00). Your request will be fulfilled. Janet requires that you acknowledge receipt of the gift with official documentation from your organization.
