About Our Studio
Iyengar Yoga Center of Boulder (IYCB) is an intimate local studio that offers yoga classes for all levels of students in the Iyengar tradition. With Guruji's blessings, our studio was founded by Laura Antelmi in 1991 and has been in continuous operation ever since. Along with our friends at Yoga Workshop, we were one of the first yoga studios to open in town. During this time Laura and others at IYCB have taught the yoga of BKS Iyengar to the Boulder community year after year. We plan to continue offering great Iyengar Yoga at affordable prices for a long time to come.

Once you go iyengar you never go back....or at least in my case!
After practicing yoga here with someone like Laura, I just can't spend my money on any other place. Yes, iyengar yoga is generally slower paced compared to other branches, but for good reason: this makes for a deep, true yoga practice that is very aware of the body and spirit.
Laura is truly an inspiring teacher. She is so good at what she does and will take the time to really get to know you and your body. She has the ability to structure each and every class based on who is there and what would be good poses for those present.
Coming here makes me feel like I'm part of a caring community who wants me to be well! (I have withdrawals when I miss class.)

This studio has been in Boulder for over 20 years, I can't believe it hasn't been added to Yelp yet. The owner and primary teacher Laura is an absolute gem. I really enjoyed taking classes here. I can see if you were to become a regular you would become part of the Iyengar family in that studio. These classes are perfect for beginners, people with medical conditions or injuries, or if you are interested in a slower paced class that is very anatomically correct. One of the cool things about the Iyengar style is the use of props and the precision with each pose. I thoroughly enjoyed my class package there and thought the classes were fun, challenging, and engaging. This studio is authentic, it's not commercial, trying to get your money or put on a fancy facade. It is small but is filled with all the necessary equipment. You're there to practice Iyengar yoga, and if you go it will be a genuine experience.
