Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Shari Iskandar & Jonas Nathan

About Shari Iskandar:

After studying Econometrics and working for several start up companies, Shari became aware that the way she lived was too stressful for her and found herself burned out for about a year. During that period she started doing yoga everyday, mostly Yin yoga, and felt that it was exactly what she needed in her life.

For Shari yoga is the best gift you can give to yourself, so she would like to help others to experience this for themselves. She followed her heart, started a 200 hrs Yin yoga teacher training and after she completed it she went to Bali for a few months. Besides relaxing in the sun and practicing a lot of yoga, she also went to deepen her meditation practice at a silent retreat. 

Now that Shari is focusing her life more on yoga and meditation, she cannot imagine a better place to start working than the studio where she fell in love with Yin yoga. As a Studio Host at Delight Yoga she would like to share her love for yoga and give members the best yoga experience they can get.



About Jonas Nathan:

Jonas was born in Australia and was traveling in Asia until he was five years old. Living in countries like Nepal and living with the people, he found a spiritual connection early in his life. Being an open and playful kid, growing up his energy started to feel ungrounded.. He missed the root of life, which resulted in an excessive lifestyle where he couldn’t find the connection with himself anymore. Nine years ago he was ready to change, ready to let go of his old lifestyle. He started practicing yoga and meditation. With the help of his teachers his inner world started to change and he started to feel the ground under his feet again. In a gentle and loving way he opened up to life. It is simply this gift that he received, that he wants to share with others.

 

Jonas believes that yoga should be for every-body. He is trained to find a pose that is perfect for your body, no matter how flexible or inflexible you are. Yoga is not a series of postures that we execute, but rather exploring the possibilities of how to open, stretch and stimulate your body.

 

With his Yin classes he gives you the time and space to bring awareness to to the areas that deserve some attention. This is different for everybody, as every person comes to the practice with different intentions and motivations. He finds that the body is a very accessible way to work on yourself. The Yang side in his practice is about slow strengthening movements. With both, yin and yang he aims to harmonize the chi in the body. He believes we can only be truly happy when we find harmony in body and mind.
