Ashtanga Dispatch is a global and inclusive community, bringing together teachers and students devoted to the practice of Ashtanga yoga, all eight of those limbs – and sharing that love both online and in person, through our audio podcast and in print magazine. Oh yeah, and we even have t-shirts! Here at the Dispatch, we are are dedicated to spreading the message that this yoga is for every body and everyone is welcome. So no matter what brought you, we’re glad you here and hope you’ll stay a while.
Thanks for visiting and please sign up for The Ashtanga Dispatch Update if you’d like to receive a monthly review of podcasts, blogs, and be the first to know when our next print edition of the Dispatch is available this fall:
About Peg …
With a master’s degree in psychology, I was a counselor for many years before yoga ruined that career. (Really, I just traded in a couch for a mat). Based out of Washington, DC – and soon Bozeman, MT – I’ve been leading classes and workshops now for over a decade.
In other words – I’m old!
Sure, I’ve practiced various styles of yoga, but it’s within the traditional method of Ashtanga where I’ve finally made my home. I guess that makes me a bit of a latecomer to the world of Ashtanga – but thanks to the guiding influence of my teacher, David Garrigues, as well as a caring network of supportive teachers (mostly Davids, as well), I’m certainly making up for lost time!
You’ll find me in lots of places online, but more often, you’ll simply find me on my mat, practicing!
Other than that, I’m a loving, yet overbearing mom and a wife, who still can’t make a pot of coffee to her husband’s liking. I also work as a copywriter for various national non-profits and have been featured in online and print publications such as Yoga Journal, Elephant Journal and Love Yoga Anatomy.
