About Johannes



Director Jivamukti Yoga School – Schloss Elmau, Advanced certified Jivamukti Teacher, Sportscientist

After getting in contact with yoga 12 years ago as part of the exercise physiology studies while attending university, Johannes started his Yoga journey. He began teaching briefly after that, mainly in a therapeutic setting. He went on to complete many teacher trainings in different traditions before he took the Jivamukti Training with Sharon and David at Omega in 2012. He opened both a Jivamukti Affiliated Studio and after passing the advanced board the Jivamukti Yoga School at Schloss Elmau. His main motivation is to teach people how to begin to practice and develop a steady practice.

He draws inspiration from viewing everyday life as part of one’s spiritual practice. Using yoga as a means to change the world fascinates him and keeps him going. His spiritual practice is mainly influenced by the Vaishnava Tradition. As a husband, father, Ultra Marathon Runner and Spa Director, he aspires to live according to the Yoga teachings.

As part of the global Jivamukti Community, he is constantly inspired by the teachings of Sharon Gannon, David Life and many amazing teachers in this lineage.
