Jonah Kest

Jonah will be teaching a pre-festival workshop and 4 classes during our KARMA Cologne Yogafestival. Stay tuned for updates.

What’s your story? I grew up in a yoga family. My dad was one of the first yoga studio owners and teacher training programs in the midwest. Ever since I was little we always did a gratitude and meditation circle with my brothers before bed. As I got older I really started to see the importance in a daily meditation and practice. My father was a great example. I started training with him to be a teacher at 17 years old in Ashtanga. After a few years of studying and training I began to teach as much as I could and share the practice with whoever would listen. I eventually went University of Colorado for college and taught classes at the recreational center twice a week. After my first year of school I dropped out and decided to move to LA to teach for my uncle Bryan (Kest) at his donation based studio in Santa Monica. Yoga is really all I know and I am just grateful it found me, and honored to be continuing the lineage.
