Anton discovered yoga during his first trip to India after graduating from University in 2002. The Austrian was immediately fascinated with the opposition of challenge and ease in a yoga practice. Yoga quickly became an essential part of his daily life, especially in balancing out the pressures he encountered during previous assignments in multinational corporations like Google as well as a mission with Doctors Without Borders in Africa.
To Anton, Why is just as important a question as How. This interest in the bigger picture lead him towards the old scriptures and modern research early on. Over the years, his study trips back to India gave him a deep understanding of this ancient science and its different traditions. It was also in India where he began to teach and share his knowledge.
Anton uses his strong asana practice as well as his vast knowledge on the historical and philosophical aspects of yoga to guide students into the deeper, subtler practices of yoga.
His emphasis is on the similarities across the different traditions rather than their superficial differences. He believes that it is within this common ground that the essence of yoga is found and handed down to us from one generation to the next. His teachings are stripped from cultural and religious connotations to make them more accessible to modern practitioners.
