The Yoga Lab is a collaborative effort among friends and yoga teachers to offer Central Oregon insightful, grounded, and fun yoga classes. Several years ago, Ulla, Rebecca and Aleta met in the Bend yoga community and starting teaching and practicing together. In 2013 they joined forces to open The Yoga Lab, a center where you can find multi-traditional, contemporary yoga supporting modern day practice. The Yoga Lab boasts experienced & respected yoga teachers offering Vinyasa, Restorative, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga teachings. The Yoga Lab is home to Bend Ashtanga Yoga which offers Mysore style morning practices 5 days per week and a led primary series class on Sunday mornings.
As a student at The Yoga Lab, you will experience a range of non-dogmatic, core traditions of yoga and meditation. You will always be greeted with a smile and an acceptance of you, your body, and your practice. All ages welcome, all levels encouraged sample our class offerings.
The Yoga lab is located in beautiful Bend Oregon; a mecca of yoga classes and outdoor activities.

The Knowledge of Life
Enhance your yoga practice and life with Ayurvedic principles
with Carin Cundey, CECP, AHE, CA, LMT
February 27-28, 2016
Ayurveda literally means “the knowledge of life”. It is a holistic health care system which incorporates the use of every aspect of life in order to assist our bodies in finding the way into our own individual equilibrium. When we find this place, we find health. The Principles of Ayurveda are not hard, fast rules, but guidelines that we can use to bring into our lives when we feel out of balance so that we can bring ourselves back into a place of harmony – then we find peace, joy, love and the ability to remain present. This workshop is divided into five sections. We will begin by providing an introduction to the wisdom and knowledge of this ancient practice. This Intro to Ayurveda will be required in order to attend subsequent sections.
