Yoga Tree Updates

Hello Yogis,

As we move on to the next horizon of our yoga journey, we are closing down the yoga program at Lake Street Church (LSC).

We teachers want to thank each and every one of you for your 17 year-long support of the program there. It has been our honor and privilege to serve you for these many years as Yoga Tree of Evanston teachers.

Because of your generosity LSC has a renovated floor, well plastered ceiling, and sturdy walls in room 205. These gifts enhance the already timeless beauty of the architectural space.

It is sad to leave but change is inevitable. Those of us who practice this Iyengar method of yoga tend to fall in love with it, because of its vast and brilliant understanding of what it takes to be a human being.

Considering we spent these years in a church it seems relevant to quote Father Joseph H. Pereira. He is an Iyengar yoga teacher in India who teaches the indigent, and has said, that for him Iyengar Yoga is the carrying of the cross. He describes it as a “No nonsense death process”. (not a good bumper sticker) We are thus always in a process of letting go and saying goodbye.


We want to celebrate you, our time there together and the space, on Sat Oct 23 from 2 – 6 pm.

Food will provided – please RSVP to

Additionally we are having a sale of the props.

Saturday Sept 25 @ 10 am – Noon – In the LSC yoga space – room 205. (Due to the church having a memorial on Sept 25 we have reduced the prop sale hours.)

Everything must go!!!

You can order before hand beginning on Monday August 2 at 8 am. No orders are to be placed before this date.

Payments are through Check, Cash, Zelle, Google pay, and Venmo. Sorry no credit cards. We will reserve props when paid. You can pick them up on the day of the sale or, if convenient for both buyer and seller, we can arrange for you to pick up paid items before the sale day.

To make arrangements to pay for props in advance (after 8 am Monday Aug 2) we will accept check, google pay, Zelle Quick-Pay or Venmo, please contact:

If you are home bound remember that yoga can help the immune system. Here are 2 sequences though the poses should be done with head support. One is more challenging than the other.

IYAMW Art for the Heart Fundraiser

Dear Yoga Tree Students –

On behalf of the Iyengar Yoga Association of the Midwest board we are happy to announce the launch of our spring fundraiser “Art for the Heart.” On March 15th, we will begin accepting orders for 12 notecard sets featuring the original work of our region’s talented artists. The proceeds for this fundraiser will not only go to further our work on programs that allow all, regardless of means or situation to study Iyengar Yoga but also to support artists within our community. Twenty-five percent of the profits for this project will go right back to our contributing artists as honorariums for their work.

Please, help us make this fundraiser a success. We would greatly appreciate your help promoting this project to colleagues, students, and friends. More details are available on the attached flyer – feel free to share it widely and direct individuals to the website OR to place orders. Orders for multiple sets or bulk orders for a studio can also be placed via PayPal by visiting the aforementioned site.
