Jovan Tevin

A professional photographer and dedicated Mysore practitioner, Jovan's gentle grace and kindness makes the Ashtanga practice accessible to all.

Seamlessly in tune with the mind, body, and spirit connection throughout childhood, Jovan first experienced the power of yoga due to a chronic shoulder dislocation that limited Jovan physically more and more each day and eventually limited his growth as an individual. Discovering the potential for yoga practice to restore both internal and external, Jovan traveled to Koh Samui, Thailand to study yoga with the Vikasa Yoga Academy.

Jovan was then recommended to the practice of Ashtanga where his research led him to Down Under School of Yoga. Upon his return to Boston, Jovan immediately delved into the practice of Ashtanga and committed himself to Down Under’s Mysore program under the guidance of Didi Von Deck, Kate O’Donnell, and Rich Ray. The famously physical and vigorous nature of the Ashtanga practice allows Jovan to face himself each day while cultivating self-compassion, meaning for Jovan the rigor of Mysore can interpret "self-discipline as an act of self-love.”

Jovan has a deep fascination with the internal aspect of practice and finds a lot of joy in taking his practice past the physical shell. His travels led him back to Koh Samui years later to complete his 500-hour Universal Yoga Teacher Training, deepening his practice spiritually and helping him to inspire others to continue the process of spiritual evolution.
