ABOUT ANDRÉ KUNKEL

André Kunkel began his journey with Martial Arts (Kung Fu, Kickboxing and Boxing) from a young age, right through until his mid twenties, when he discovered Snowboarding and Kitesurfing.

It was during this time that he was diagnosed Ankylosing Spondylitis – a serious and “incurable” form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, causing inflammation of the spinal joints, leading to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. This understandably had a major effect on his sporting career and lifestyle.

Despite this major setback, André chose to view this disease, and the challenges that came along with it, as a blessing instead of a curse.

The journey to heal himself physically brought with it the realisation that the key to health is a combination of the physical, emotional and spiritual realms. During this journey, André studied Yoga, Philosophy, Shamanic Healing techniques and Budokon – a form of Mixed Movement Arts – with some of the world’s most renowned teachers.

André also holds a German Diploma for Medical Engineering. His constant drive to learn and ongoing study of different techniques makes him an ever-evolving teacher with a broad spectrum of knowledge and tools.

As he likes to say, in his typical, no-nonsense approach, “I made it through the shit and I can show you how!”

TESTIMONIALS

Andre is a very rare individual. I have been fortunate to know him and to work with him over the past 7 years. He is one who has embraced and embodied yoga on all levels of life. I have seen him apply a humble warrior spirit to his own practice and show the precision of a German engineer to the teaching of advanced asana, but what makes him truly remarkable is that he has the open heart of a Bhakta! His open hearted generosity and enthusiasm in teaching come from a pure and authentic place. This is a man who has done the work and paid his dues. As a result he not only knows his stuff deeply but knows the art of sharing it. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Andre has been my preferred yoga instructor for 2 years. Under his instructions I have grown strong and flexible and developed a deep understanding both form and flow. When I attended his first class I was very impressed with his ability to give detailed instructions about posture and sequence of movement, all the while  maintaining connection to breath. He is constantly working on his own practice and it has been a wonderful journey growing with him. I highly recommend him to anyone who has the chance to learn from this wonderful teacher.

I’ve experienced a wide range of Yoga instructors and André’s classes are so far my favourite. There is a good focus on building strength, on correct breathing technique and on developing balance in the body. André’s style is also very good for aspiring surfers like me!

I have many different type of traning from martial art to dance and yoga, gymanstic, name it and i tried already. I accidentally visited one of his morning session and i was totally amazed by the class. It was very well build up from the beginning till the end. The movements was interesting to work with and it took the whole body and mind to accomplish them. Andre was a great teacher and a very positive spirit. Wish we live closer so i can join his classes.
