Ashtanga Flow

The Class

This is a physical form of yoga which synchronizes breath and movement through a precise series of movements called the Primary Series. This class is done in a warm to hot room where the teacher will guide you through your practice. Here at Harvest, we offer 60, 75, and 90 minutes Ashtanga classes, so depending on class length, select sections of postures from the Primary Series are taught, while others are omitted. As such, each Ashtanga class will have the same skeletal structure, where the same postures are still taught in the same order, but the teacher omits some postures of their choosing. Because of this, once you take a few Ashtanga classes, you will have a basic expectation of how the class typically goes, but each class might be slightly different than the time before. Like the other ‘Flow’ classes, each movement has an associated breath, and vice versa. One posture will take you into the next, which takes you into the next, and so on. There are no moments in the class when you’re ‘out of’ a pose – stillnesses take place when a posture is held for a few cycles of breath, before you make your way into the next posture.

OWNER, TEACHER, AND PRACTITIONER

Pauline

Pauline has lived in Lethbridge for over 10 years. Originally from Calgary, she moved to Lethbridge to complete her BFA at the U of L. Her plan was to leave shortly after completing her degree, but opportunities continued to arise that allowed her to remain in the city. She fell in love with yoga 11 years ago – the 26&2 class kicked her butt, and she loved every minute of it. Off to training the following year, and more trainings in the years that followed. She is trained in Bikram (26&2), Power Vinyasa Flow, Vinyasa, Yin, Buti, Ashtanga/Rocket, and Nidra.

Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing husband, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time, helping our team, and ready to chat with everyone he sees.

Patty

I was raised on a farm in Wrentham, AB. I attended university in Utah at BYU. While I was earning my bachelors degree I gained a passion for outdoor recreation. Rock climbing , mountain biking, backpacking and water sports are the things I choose to do whenever I get the chance. I have 5 awesome kids and an amazing husband. We love to go on adventures together! I started practicing yoga in April 2018. Admittedly I initially came to the studio under duress. The friends I workout with wanted to add yoga to our workout and running routine. I agreed to give yoga try after a frustrating string of fitness related injuries. I survived my first class which was 26 & 2. I was pleasantly surprised with how good I felt … after it was over. I have been coming regularly ever since. I may have started practicing yoga for the physical benefits but I was amazed at the effect it had on my mental well being. Taking time away from the stresses of my day and allowing myself some guilt free “me” time has been just the thing I needed to gain and maintain a positive outlook on life.

Shonna

Her yoga mat is a place that reminds her of the Choose Your Own Adventure books from when she was a kid. Sometimes it reveals much, sometimes it offers straight up play and joy, sometimes it humbles her. She has been blessed with teachers who illuminated how to strive living open to grace and gratitude, filled with awe and wonder, on and off the mat.

Kendall

Kendall is a massage therapy student, substitute teacher, kinesiology grad and movement enthusiast. She was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, a suburb in Toronto. She is fascinated with the human body and craves “in the flow” experiences.  While playing soccer at university, she was looking for a way to loosen up tight hips and ankles, as well as prevent future injuries – that lead her to a hot room at Moksha Yoga London in 2007. It was love at first sweat!

She has trained with the Moksha/Modo International faculty and Ryan Leier and the One Yoga faculty, as well as smaller trainings with Eoin Finn of Blissology, Alan Mileham, Mark Stephens, and YogaFit  International. Her studies include hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, vinyasa krama, Iyengar, yin, myofascial yoga, prenatal, aerial, mindfulness and kid’s yoga.
