Schalk started practising yoga in 2000, after moving from South Africa to Germany. His practice deepened immensely once he discovered Jivamukti Yoga in New York in 2007, After practicing with the London Jivamukti Community for a number of years, he completed the Jivamukti Teachers Training in 2011 with Sharon Gannon, David Life and Lady Ruth. A life transforming experience. He is an Advanced & 800-hr Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, having completed his apprenticeship with Emma Henry (his remover of gu), in London. Blessings to all our Teachers. May we never stop learning.
