About Jeff Lichty
Jeff Lichty is an avid adventurer and thoughtful seeker of truth and wisdom.
Sixteen years as a critical care paramedic along with his pre-existing existential inclinations led him to the practice of Ashtanga Yoga and the direct study with Sri K Pattabhi Jois and Sri R Sharath Jois. He has traveled to India over 17 times to study directly with the masters of Ashtanga Yoga.
Authorized to teach the practice by Guruji and Sharath in 2006, Jeff has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga full-time in Canada and internationally.
Former co-founder and director of Ashtanga Yoga Victoria, he recently relocated to Calgary, Canada. The Calgary Ashtanga Yoga School now provides a space for a thriving community of practitioners, and Jeff continues to infuse the city with the dynamic & practical teachings of Ashtanga Yoga.
Jeff is approachable and practical in his teachings. He has a real talent for expanding the ordinary definitions of yoga beyond the reach of our current body centric-culture and revealing how these practices powerfully penetrate into all areas of life.
He is an excellent resource for lifestyle coaching and personal transformation.
His teachings lead us to the pursuit of our highest selves.
About Joanne Hutchinson
Shortly before my 40th Birthday I wandered into the yoga studio closest to my home. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the teachers were skilled and the practice challenging. The sensations of the breath flowing, the heat building in the body and the trembling of limbs was waking up something long dormant. I felt invigorated, alive and I was hooked.
Before the year was finished I had signed up for my first teacher training at Yogadotcalm. This training introduced me to the Mysore style of self-practice which led me to my teachers Jeff Lichty and Harmony Slater. It was during Jeff and Harmony’s training that I realized I was barley scratching the surface of this practice and decided to “dig my well deep”.
Nothing has taught me more than the discipline of stepping onto my mat every morning. This practice asks a lot of you, but it gives back tenfold.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn and grow with the Calgary Ashtanga Yoga School community.
