Jan’s journey on the yoga path began in 2003 with doing daily Hatha yoga on his own.

Since the year 2009, Jan participated in a number of Buddhist Vipassana courses from the Satipatthana tradition. For over five years, Jan’s main spiritual practice has been dedicated to Tantra and Kundalini under the guidance of Sri Guruji Rajkumar Baswar.
Martin has been meditating for more than 30 years. 14 years ago, he came across this particular form of Vipassana meditation and it was a life-changing experience. He subsequently spent years practicing in Northern Thailand often going straight from one retreat into another. Soon, he was asked to assist in leading retreats by revered teacher Thanat in Chom Thong in Thailand and Phra Ofer in Israel under the authority of the venerable Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo coming from the Mahasi lineage.
