Jost Blomeyer is one of the most experienced Aerial Yoga teachers in Europe. He has introduced this innovative exercise programme in TV shows of ARD, Arte, RTL, N-TV, Sat.1 and ZDF as well as in print magazines, online and on radio.
After his training as an actor, singer and dancer – amongst others at the Staatliche Ballettschule in his hometown Berlin – he performed at the Metropol-Theater. He danced in musicals from “Anatevka” to “Wizard of Oz”, acted in the TV series “Gute Zeiten – Schlechte Zeiten” and was the choreographer for the German boy band “Strong Together”.
While studying for a degree in architecture and being confronted with back pain due to prolonged sitting, Jost turned to health-oriented training. He got certified as a fitness and aerobics instructor and soon became a teacher at the TÜV-Akademie for future trainers. After he discovered yoga, he took over thousand hours of training classes in France, the Bahamas and Texas to become a yoga teacher in the Sivananda and Ashtanga Vinyasa styles. He was licensed at the Yoga Alliance (500 Hours Level, Multi-Style).
After receiving his diploma from the Technical University Berlin he discovered his interest for psychology and the mind-body connection and immersed into numerous qualification programs like EMDR Therapist, NLP Trainer, Wingwave Coach and Non-medical Practitioner for Psychotherapy. Since 2004 he is working as a workshop trainer, coach and therapist both nationally and internationally. He is the founder and owner of metatraining.
In 2009, after his training in AntiGravity Aerial Yoga, he was one of the first to teach this programme in Germany. He was also certified in Aerial Flow Yoga (Unnata Aerial Yoga style). He integrates his knowledge as a certified trainer in yoga, fitness, aerobics, Pilates, Blackroll fascia training and in TRX suspension training into his lessons. His yoga classes combine a mixture of good humour and serenity, strenuous exercises and concentration on breathing, followed by relaxation. His main focus is on Aerial Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga.
A yoga sequence by Jost was published on DVD for the magazine “Tip: Edition Aktiv leben”. On TV he spoke at the zibb-Infomagazin about yoga, weight reduction and light relaxation at the PC work station and he demonstrated practical exercises. He recorded the CD “Relaxing Body & Mind”, which contains progressive muscle relaxation as well as yoga relaxation. His DVD Meditation und Yoga für Coaches und Therapeuten was recorded during his 60 minute presentation at the DVNLP congress “Coaching”. He also recorded yoga video series for the training portals Loox (McFit) and My Mat & Me. For the Spiegel Online yoga special Das große Yoga ABC he has demonstrated five modern styles: AntiGravity Aerial Yoga, Acro Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Jivamukti Yoga. The magazine Yoga Deutschland published a cover story on Aerial Yoga with Jost. Currently he is featured in a Fitbook video, were he demonstrates Aerial Yoga and talks about the origins, advantages and benefits of this new yoga style: Warum diese Trendsportart für fast jeden geeignet ist.
Jost has more than twenty years of teaching experience. Over one hundred participants successfully completed his Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course.
