John is a visual artist, a teacher and a dedicated yoga practitioner. He completed his initial teacher training at BeEvolution with Jagadisha in 2013. Wishing to deepen his yoga immersion, he studied with the renowned Raji Thron and completed his advanced 300 hour training the following year. His teaching style is straight forward with a relaxed vibe. He encourages mindful movement, attention to detail and alignment as well as close connection to the breath, allowing the postures to give students their primary yoga experience. John is also a life-drawing instructor at The Montclair Art Museum and finds a deep correlation between the meditative focus required for the practices of both yoga and drawing.
