The Yoga Lab is a group of dedicated yoga practitioners committed to offering opportunities to study, grow and explore in the practices of yoga. We are passionate about self-inquiry and the process of conscious change and transformation. Our mission is to blend theory with practice, hard work with celebration, sweat with smiles and help you relax into the love that is YOU.
The Yoga Lab’s founders Aleta Adams, Rebecca Bell, and Ulla Lundgren are friends, dedicated yoga practitioners and teachers with over seventy-three years of combined exploration and study of yoga. We came together out of a longing for a “yoga home” grounded in tradition yet open to innovation, exploration and continuing education. Our asana/yoga-pose background is in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, Anusara and eclectic Vinyasa Flow. We are dedicated to offer a full spectrum of yoga sadhana/practices including yoga philosophy, kirtan/devotional chanting, meditation, ayurveda and of course lots and lots of fun Yoga classes. We welcome all ages, beginners to advanced practitioners, and hope that you will find The Yoga Lab an inspiring, playful, and transformational yoga community. Today, The Yoga Lab is owned by Aleta Adams, Rebecca Bell and Ulla Lundgren. We have a dedicated staff of karma yogis who help our daily operations by ensuring that the studio is clean and our towels are washed as well as checking in our classes and plastering Bend with our flyers. If you are interested in joining our Karma Crew as a work/trade volunteer please email us at email@example.com. We also have a fabulous group of yoga teachers to lead you through your practices. If you are a yoga teacher interested in joining our staff please email your resume and availability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
