Jeff Lichty, Canada
“I'm extremely excited to be involved with YGB.  My first trip to India was in 1993 where I volunteered with Mother Teresa in Calcutta,  the extent of the poverty impacted me immediately, and there seemed no great solution.  18 trips later, YGB has hit on the quintessential solution.  Empower Women!  I believe in this venture and think the impact will snowball creating a positive effect on many lives."


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. The Calgary Ashtanga Yoga School provides a space for a thriving community of practitioners, and Jeff continues to infuse the city with the dynamic & practical teachings of Ashtanga Yoga. 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.
