Erez Atar

Erez grew up in Israel. At the age of eighteen he joined the Israeli Army, and was recruited for the Special Forces for four and a half years. Upon leaving he traveled the world. It was in Minneapolis that he discovered Yoga. He always knew he would do something in his life which combined the physical and spiritual. Erez found his destiny in the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. He has traveled to India, California and New York in order to study with his teacher, the founder of Ashtanga Yoga, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. He has supplemented his training by studying with the only teachers in the world who are qualified to teach Ashtanga due to the fact that they have spent a lot of time in India in order to be certified by Pattabhi Jois. They are as follows: Manju Jois, Pattabhi’s son, Shirat Jois, Pattabhi’s grandson, Micheal Gannon, Govinda Kai, and Kino Macgregor. Erez’s newest favorite teachers are his two beloved children Lilly and Lucas whom he learns from each and every day! Erez teaches authentic, traditional Ashtanga, mixing the physical and the spiritual in a seamless flow.
