Barb is a wonderful teacher! Extremely knowledgeable, good at explaining things and helping you adjust poses to suit your needs and abilities. She’s good-humored, too!


I look forward to coming to class. I love the skillful way BarbĀ guides us into and out of asanas, Her patience and encouragement, her responsiveness to individual limitations, and the way she shares the teachings of Mr. Iyengar – it’s a lovely balance!


After having competed 5 months of yoga instruction with Barb Sato, I have concluded that she is an excellent yoga teacher. She has deep knowledge of the principles and philosophy of Iyengar yoga. Her own extensive background training, combined with her ongoing practice, are evident in her beautiful ease of movement. She prepares thoroughly for each class, and gives clear instructions and gentle encouragement throughout her instruction.

She seeks information and feedback from students about their needs and limitations, individually adapting instruction as appropriate for each individual. She proactively monitors students closely during instruction to prevent the emergence of any issues, and provides specific feedback to each student about their poses. All of these things she does in an easy, relaxed manner. She loves yoga, and this is manifested in the obvious joy she shows as she shares it with others. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn yoga with Barb.
