Hatha, Iyengar, Restorative
The California Yoga Center (CYC) is located in the heart of Silicon Valley with studios in Mountain View and Palo Alto. Serving the community since 1980, we are dedicated to offering yoga instruction in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar.
Our two studios provide the community with more than 60 classes each week to meet the needs of busy Bay Area lifestyles. Classes range from beginner to advanced, and include pranayama, back care, yoga for kids, and gentle yoga. We also sponsor workshops presented by our own instructors as well as by knowledgeable and well-respected yoga instructors from around the world. The workshops range from half day to full weekends and focus on a variety of yoga-related topics.
Yoga in the Iyengar tradition emphasizes a balance between strength and flexibility, builds endurance, and develops self-awareness through precision in movement and attention to subtle aspects of posture and breath, mind and spirit.
