Jonah kest was born into a yoga legacy. With his father, vinyasa yoga pioneer Jonny Kest, and his mother, Milla Kest, as one of the first yoga business owners and yoga teacher training programs in the Midwest – he was destined to follow the path.
While his early interests included basketball, boxing, and running track, it became very clear that strength without flexibility would be a hard path. His breath became the very partner that he sought in every activity, every relationship, every moment. Enter Ashtanga Yoga. At 17, Jonah trained under his father to become a teacher. His equanimity strengthened with a daily meditation sit and it was a natural evolution to teach.
The mind-body connection influenced his life — sharing the practice changed it.
Today, Jonah is a well-traveled ashtanga/vinyasa teacher whose classes are both graceful and intense. Impermanence, compassion, and humility are just a few of the elements that Jonah seamlessly weaves through each healing practice. His plant-based diet and love for creating raw, rich, vegan meals has also become a passion and healing modality.
