Muhammed Yunus started body work as an actor at METU Players in 2007 while studying Physics at university. Then he started practicing Hatha Yoga in 2011 under the guidance of Ferhan Yüksel. He founded METU Yoga, one of Turkey's first university yoga societies, in 2013, and Yoga La Yoga in Ankara in 2018. Considering that being a good teacher requires a very good studentship, he participated in face to face studies with valuable teachers such as Ty Landrum, Petri Raisanen, Gokulacandra, Monika Munzinger, Dylan Werner, Yuval Ayalon, Mikael Kristiansen, Andrii Bondarenko, Roye Goldschmidt, YogaBeyond and Till Heeg in the fields of Yoga, AcroYoga, Thai Massage, Movement and Handstand. In addition to yoga, he continues to shape his practice with different movement disciplines such as AcroYoga, Calisthenics and Handstand.
