You’ll enjoy incredible plant based meals to nourish your body, mind and creative force.

Putting nature at the heart of the experience will be the best possible partner to reveal who we are to ourselves. You will have a chance to explore Jonah’s curated set of destinations in the heart of Bali that most people never get to see! Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime.

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’ll have the opportunity to capture once in a lifetime shots! You don’t need a fancy camera (iPhone is fine), however if you have one or want to get one, it is highly recommended. There will be 1:1 editing sessions offered at the resort. Jonah will also be teaming up with an incredible local Bali Photographer (@IW_WM) who will help lead workshops and take photos, so you can return home with beautiful art from Bali!

Jonah Kest

Jonah Kest was born into a yoga legacy. With his father, vinyasa yoga pioneer Jonny Kest, and his mother, Milla Kest, as one of the first yoga business owners and yoga teacher training programs in the Midwest – he was destined to follow the path.

At the age of three, Jonah was walking the yoga room with his dad and shortly thereafter he began to learn the importance of a daily practice and evening meditation.

While his early interests included basketball, boxing and running track, it became very clear that strength without flexibility would be a hard path. His breath became the very partner that he sought in every activity, every relationship, every moment.

Enter Ashtanga Yoga.

At 17, Jonah trained under his father to become a teacher. His passion and grace was evident. His equanimity strengthened with a daily meditation sit and it was a natural evolution to teach. The mind-body connection influenced his life — sharing the practice changed it.

Today, Jonah is a well traveled Ashtanga and Vinyasa teacher whose classes are both graceful and intense. Impermanence, compassion and humility are just a few of the elements that Jonah seamlessly weaves through each healing practice. His plant based diet and love for creating raw, rich, vegan meals has also become a passion and healing modality.
