John is a lifelong athlete and faithful yogi for the last decade who was lucky enough to leave life as a television producer and corporate America behind to follow his true passion and call to helping others through yoga. John received his 500 RYT with Yoga Alliance through Atmananda in Union Square and is ERYT 200 with over 3,000 hours of teaching and has roots studying Jivamukti, Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga and countless Vinyasa flows. John draws on all of his experiences in athletics, animal rescue, television production and world travel to enrich the lives of his students on and off the mat. His goal is to take the strength inside of you and help bring it out, providing students the tools to maximize their potential through self-realization and a disciplined but safe practice they can take anywhere and continue late into life. John's greatest joy is teaching and inspiring students who in turn teach and inspire him!

John currently lives in sunny Golden Hill San Diego with his two rescue dogs Theo and Lola.
