Teaching on the road while pregnant made Claudine Lafond an even more compassionate teacher. She and her husband Honza are beloved teachers and the founders of YogaBeyond. Growing up in the Czech Republic, Honza had insatiable hunger for finding the answers to life’s existential questions, and he discovered yoga through his love for meditation and philosophy. Native New Yorker Claudine has been active her whole life, earning a black belt in jiu-jitsu at a young age. Her yoga journey began at 15 in Bali when she was invited to an Iyengar class in a home garden.
