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.
