About your trainer
Jacob grew up in Cape Town, South Africa (SA). By 12, he was travelling the world surfing professionally. During this time, he won some of the biggest surfing comps in SA. When he discovered yoga around 16, he was surprised how well it complemented his surfing by increasing flexibility and core strength. By 20, Jacob had lost his competitive drive to surf professionally. This is when he began to teach yoga; combining mind, body, and spirit practices to build strength, increase flexibility, and grow inner resilience.
What I provide
I am both a yoga and surf instructor. Drawing on similarities between yoga and surfing, I bridge the two disciplines, developing inner talents at the beginner and advanced levels. For yoga clients, I create programs that complement their sport or personal goals. For surfers, I consult on how to get started, find the right gear, and optimize form.
