JJ has been a student of Vipassana since 2002, has been practising yoga for over a decade, and studied Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (Sivananda and Ashtanga) with Yogi Sivadas in Dharamsala, India in 2011. He has been certified by Amy Weintraub as a LifeForce Yoga Practitioner—Level 1. LifeForce Yoga uses evidence-based movement, sound and breath work to work with depression and anxiety, the most common co-occurring afflictions of addiction. JJ has also completed very intense Shamanic Yoga Teacher Training in Peru in 2012 and incorporates a large body of knowledge acquired from that process into his own practice and teaching.

JJ offers residential shamanic yoga trainings for writing, expansion, depression, anxiety and addiction throughout the year. Please contact for details.

Great Instructor

John has been providing weekly yoga instruction at my office and he is a wonderful teacher. He adjusts based on the needs (and energy) of the students and provides clear and helpful directions. He has a good sense of humour and welcomes all those who want to participate whether they are experienced or new to yoga. I always leave his class feeling stronger and relaxed. I highly recommend John's yoga instruction.
