Adeline Yoga is a community-based Iyengar yoga studio in South Berkeley. It was founded in 2006 by Chris Williams. Heather became the Director in 2012. She owns and runs the Studio with her husband Bashir and vitally important community of teachers, workstudy participants and students.
The Mission of Adeline Yoga Studio is to provide a safe place where anybody regardless of age, ability or health status can experience the transformational qualities inherent in the yoga practice. Our teachers are all dedicated students of B.K.S. Iyengar who teach with compassion and integrity. Our students include residents of Berkeley's Lorin District and people who live throughout the East Bay. And, we serve as a beacon for Iyengar yoga students who come from around Northern California.
Adeline is located at 3320 Adeline Street @ Alcatraz in Berkeley California. The studio is very conveniently located near Hwy 24, 80 and 580. We are close to BART and major bus lines. Plus, there is plenty of free parking right outside the studio.
We believe it is important to play an active role in developing the strength and resilience of our communities, both locally and globally. We directly offer many community classes every week, and other affordable programming to those who live near us. You will often see us offering free yoga at the Tuesday Farmer’s Market and at the festivals in our neighborhood. We are active participants in the Lorin District Business District and support as many local school activities and non-profit organizations as we can.
We are a community of teachers and practitioners committed to achieving our highest potential, both individually and together.
