John is a Certified Anusara™ Yoga Instructor and has studied extensively with Anusara founder John Friend. In 2003, John completed a formal 400 hour teacher training with Todd Norian and has assisted Todd’s teacher trainings since. John also had the privilege of traveling to India with Desiree Rambaugh and assisted her while teaching at the International Yoga Fesitival in Rishikesh in 2007.John began playing ice-hockey at the age of six and played throughout high school. In college, he got heavily into weight-training. In 1999 he was introduced to yoga and left the gym for good the following year. He found that yoga offered a much better work out without all the strain on the body and actually grew a full inch! Since finding Anusara Yoga in 2002, he has remained dedicated to The Universal Principles of Alignment™ and no longer needs to see the chiropractor. Combining an amazing, therapeutic workout with a life enhancing, heart opening practice inspired by a tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness, John has found his path. John feels that this practice is a way to awaken to the full spectrum of life and to heal and inspire others to align with their greatest good thus raising the vibration for all. The inspiration of this practice has taken John to India, Egypt, Costa Rica and all over the States as he loves to travel and explore different cultures and perspectives of life.
