Iyengar Yoga Teacher

My name is Nancy Roberts and I am a certified Iyengar teacher at the Intermediate Junior level.  I have traveled to India six times to study directly with the Iyengars at RIMYI.  I began teaching yoga full-time in 1994.  I believe my strengths as a teacher are my years of practice, my love of the subject and my sense of humor.  I also can be very creative when it comes to the use of yoga props.   

When I'm not teaching yoga, my second passion is vegetarian cooking. I'm usually either in my yoga room or in my kitchen.  If I were into social media, I would be sharing recipes and yoga sequences regularly!  However, as you can see by my website, it's not my style!

MY CLASSES:  My home studio is located near the Santa Barbara Mission.  Group classes are on Wednesday and Friday from 9-10:30am.   My classes are generally limited to 10-12 people.  I also teach individual and semi-private classes.

If you are interested in attending a group class or having a private lesson, please email me at:

Yoga Puzzle Books:  During one of my creative phases, I got the idea that it would be fun to learn the meaning of the Sanskrit yoga terms via crossword puzzles. With permission from Guruji to use his books, I created a series of puzzle books that are now sold in the IYNAUS store.  The books contain crossword and word search puzzles and the answers can be found in BKS Iyengar's books: Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras, and The Tree of Yoga.   Visit IYNAUS.ORG to order any of these books.

If you'd like to learn a bit more about the puzzle books and see some photos of me bowing before Guruji, you can visit my site:
