Kru Jonas have been involved in teaching TTC’s since 1999. The picture above is from one of many years of Anusara Training [2012]. The upcoming Immersion A is probably his last TTC training…

Designed for committed yogis and yoga teachers who wants to deepen their understanding and refine their practice. The 50-hour Anusara Immersion A offers a comprehensive yoga curriculum and also serves as the first part of the Anusara Yoga Teacher Training.

The Immersion can be taken as an independent study module and is open to all interested yoga students. The Anusara method is educational, systematic, therapeutic and awareness expanding. When applied regularly it creates an optimally balanced body-mind, longevity and happiness 🙂

40 Years of Practice
Year 2021 is my 40th anniversary with yoga 🙂
I have participated in the global rise of yoga since it began its fame some 20+ years ago in the USA. When I met yoga in 1981 it was not a famous thing; not a job; no teacher trainings; no internet; no social media; no fashion; no yoga pants; no pictures; no mats: no studios; no online yoga class portals; no zoom; not sexy; not fitness; not a money-making industry… Yet many [like myself] have made it a lively-hood.

Yoga is a tool-box for Self-Discovery! This ‘old school yogi’ was lucky to practice for 15 years before I took my first teacher training and began sharing it.

“Yoga begins with Self-Observation ~ leading to Self-Awareness ~ which changes into Self-Discovery ~ which later on changes into Self-Realization.”
