Teaching since 2009, John’s approach starts with the breath, then focuses on keeping the body safe through emphasis on personal alignment, encouraging each student to modify poses as needed to avoid injury. While encouraging rest when needed, his classes challenge both body and brain through vigorous and dynamic sequences to allow students plenty of opportunity for growth. As a massage therapist and student of anatomy, he adds his knowledge of the body into his sequencing and alignment suggestions.
He has witnessed yoga’s ability to heal the body, mind, and soul in himself and his students over the years. His quirky sense of humor and eclectic musical taste add a fun twist to his classes.
