San Francisco based Judith Hanson Lasater has taught yoga since 1971 and is one of the West’s best known and most highly respected teachers. As well as extensive study with B. K. S. Iyengar in India and the United States, Judith has a doctorate in East-West psychology and is a physical therapist. She helped found the California Yoga Teachers Association, Yoga Journal magazine and the Iyengar Institute of San Francisco and is the author of eight books: What We Say Matters, Yogabody, A Year of Living Your Yoga, Yoga Abs, Yoga for Pregnancy, 30 Essential Yoga Poses, Living Your Yoga and Relax and Renew, as well as teaching extensively around the world. In Judith’s eyes, the practice of yoga is fundamentally an act of kindness toward oneself. This idea is often forgotten, but not by Judith, whose approach is warm, non-judgmental and responsive to individual differences and needs.

what our students say

It was anatomy made interesting and I liked the way it was interspersed with spiritual teachings. Also Judith really tried to deal with people's queries as much as possible even though there were loads!
