  • Esther Ekhart


    Esther is the office head-yogini and one of the founding partners of EkhartYoga. During a meditation retreat in 2007 the idea of online yoga popped up in her head and she created the team that made it all happen.

    Esther spends her days studying yoga, answering questions, creating new yoga programs and yoga classes. She teaches yoga workshops, retreats and regular teacher trainings all over Europe. She is better at yoga than at computers.


    Esther is as passionate about yoga as she is about healthy food and her two cats, Angel and Spooky.

  • Bas Paul

    Jack of all trades

    Bas bought his first camera when his wife Esther came up with the idea of creating online yoga. He shot and edited over 1000 yoga videos and YouTube clips. In 2013 Agnes took over that task to create room for him to become the man who makes everything happen from PR to paying bills to social media. 

    Hanging out

    Bas loves hanging out with famous yoga teachers and sipping drinks on tropical islands with Esther. He was a carpenter for many years and is passionate about trees and woodwork.

    Kirsty is the chief editor of the blog, having joined EkhartYoga in 2015. She writes and edits articles about yoga, health and nutrition and assists Esther Ekhart with all things yoga-related (as well as appearing with her in some of her classes). She also helps puts together guided yoga programs alongside Esther and Jenny.

    Kirsty and Yoga

    Kirsty has been practising yoga since 2002 and was one of Esther Ekhart’s first teacher trainees. Having qualified as a yoga teacher with EkhartYoga, Kirsty set up her own yoga classes in the Lake District in England, whilst also working part-time and guest-writing and editing articles for Ekhart Yoga.

    Kirsty relocated to Holland to follow her passion and her dream (...though you also may catch her dreaming about the mountains back home now and again!)

Jenny is a big fan of making yoga accessible to everyone and anyone. You might recognise her from some of our online yoga classes too - Jenny frequently appeared as a student on Esther's videos.
