This program was founded in 2006 by certified Ashtanga teachers David and Catherine Garrigues, and has been directed by their student, Luke Baugh, since 2012. This is a traditionally based program, grounded in the yoga sutras, Samkhya philosophy, and asana systems of the Krishnamacharya, Desikachar, Jois, and Iyengar lineages. This program meets and exceeds requirements for 200 hour registration with Yoga Alliance (upon completion we will give you the credential needed to acquire this certificate). The program incorporates a non dogmatic approach to yoga through acknowledgement of traditional practices, modern innovations to classical asana (including props), and for teachers, a very clear understanding of yoga theory and philosophy. While respect is given to our ancestors in yoga, this is a utilitarian school, and the doors are open to people of all disciplines who want to expand their yogic knowledge or become teachers.
