About The Teacher

A medicine Student and a passionate practitioner of martial arts and calisthenics Jonas came to yoga by accident “to prove it’s not a real challenge”. With his ego crashed Jonas left his first class feeling ridiculously sore but profoundly calm with an (unknown up to that moment) sensation of inner peace. And he had caught the bug. Mastering control over his own body and breath became an obsession to him. While studying in Germany, “training” at a studio wasn’t something he could afford and that turned him into a disciplined Ashtanga self-practitioner in order to fulfill his obsession.
