Jonathan was one of the first South Africans to travel to Pune to study with BKS Iyengar. His first studio was in Hout Bay (blessed by Iyengar himself on a visit to South Africa). From here his reputation grew, not only through his personal performance of the asanas, but through his accurate and demanding style of teaching. Several decades of teaching and observing Yoga students - beginners through to teachers - have developed Jonathan's unique pedagogical method. Although just as strict and precise as ever, it is now more attuned to Western bodies and students who come to Yoga later in life. Jonathan's classes are holistic and explore all facets of Yoga. He does not work from notes: what he teaches has evolved through practice, observation and study and continues to evolve, making no two classes the same. Jonathan is resident teacher at Under the Mountain Yoga Centre in Greyton.
