Jay Mac, grew up in Boksburg. A dull town on the eastern fringes of Jo’burg, but a town which inspired him into finding a colour-filled career in Visual Arts and Event Production.
It was only in 2009 that Jay stumbled upon the holistic effects of meditation which led him to discover the full spectrum of Yoga and its ancient Philosophies. In 2012 he ventured to Costa Rica for a month intensive to gain his accreditation as a 300hr Jivamukti Yoga Teacher  In 2013 he put his career on hold as he wandered over to Austin Texas to gain a certification in Plant Based Culinary Arts, followed by a 4 month apprenticeship in Charleston South Carolina, where he accomplished his 800hr Jivamukti Advanced Certification, under the tutelage of Andrea Boyd.
In early 2014 Jay returned to Cape Town and was given the opportunity to co-own and teach at AIR Yoga CPT, and has proudly gone on to produce some of Cape Town’s finest 200hr Vinyasa Teachers through the facilitation of the inetrnationally recognised RYT programme.
Outside of teaching, Jay is a vegan chef and owner of The Kind Kitchen.
