Club Med has partnered with world-renowned yoga instructor Jonah Kest, who will now serve as a Yoga Ambassador across the brand's North American and Caribbean resorts.

Born into a yoga legacy, Kest is a globally celebrated Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga teacher known for his inspiring classes and collaborations with leading brands like Nike and Netflix

The partnership is part of a strategy "to enrich and elevate the yoga program, adding significant value by bringing in his unique expertise included in every guest’s stay," Club Med said in a press release. 

Exclusive training for yoga G.Os

Recently, Kest led an in-person training for the yoga G.Os (Club Med’s Gracious Organizers; yoga instructors) of the North American and Caribbean resorts. 

The goal was to streamline Club Med's yoga programming while introducing his signature practice to enhance the Wellness fusion program.

During the immersive sessions, Kest shared his knowledge and passion, equipping the instructors with innovative techniques, signature yoga flows, sequencing workshops, curated music and a renewed outlook on wellness. 

His training has motivated the yoga instructors, "who are now ready to share his inspiring practice with the guests," Club Med says. 

20+ hours of yoga & meditation opportunities

Guests can now embark on an enhanced wellness journey enriched by Kest's expertise. With his three expertly-crafted yoga flows – including the grounding of Roots Yoga, the calm of Restorative Yoga, and the energy of Flow Yoga – guests will experience deeper relaxation and rejuvenation. 

Club Med’s certified yoga G.Os, trained under Kest's guidance, offer more than 20 hours of yoga and meditation opportunities per week, including beachside and sunset sessions.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Jonah Kest, a globally recognized yoga instructor, as part of our commitment to elevate the wellness experience at Club Med. Jonah’s expertise and passion for yoga align perfectly with our vision of providing holistic and enriching experiences for our guests,” said Carolyne Doyon, president and CEO of Club Med North America and the Caribbean. “This partnership is especially significant with our expansion of the Wellness Fusion program across our North America resorts. At Club Med, we continuously strive to innovate and provide exceptional value, and this collaboration marks a significant step in our ongoing journey to promote well-being and inspire our community.” 

Expansion of Wellness Fusion program

This year marks the final expansion of Club Med's Wellness Fusion program across seven North American properties. This program offers guests a well-rounded stay with yoga, healthy nutrition, active sports, spa relaxation and nature reconnection. 

Since its launch in 2022, the offer has grown to include dedicated yoga G.Os for each resort, 20-plus hours of yoga and meditation per week, guided wellness nights, rotating plant-based dishes inspired by a partnership with Food Network’s award-winning vegan Chef Chloe Coscarelli, and more. 

The wellness program is now available across seven North America resorts including: Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, Club Med Punta Cana, Club Med Québec, Club Med Ixtapa Pacific, Club Med Cancún, Club Med Columbus and Club Med Turkoise. 

“Partnering with Club Med is an incredible opportunity to bring the transformative power of yoga to a wider audience in some of the world’s most beautiful and serene locations,” said Kest in a statement. “I visited Club Med as a kid, and it feels like a full-circle moment to now guide guests on a journey toward achieving profound balance and tranquility through Club Med’s enriched Wellness Fusion yoga program.” 

Throughout the year, Kest will visit various Club Med resorts to lead exclusive yoga sessions and wellness experiences. Stay tuned for programming updates.
