John was introduced to yoga by his Danish wife Pia in February 2002. “….one day she dragged me into a class at our local health club and I’ve been lost to it ever since…” John’s experience has encompassed a number of styles including Mysore, Dharma Mitra, Iyengar and general Hatha classes. He has practiced at various centres in England, South Africa, India, Denmark and France.
He teaches regularly in London and occasionally in Denmark where he spends part of the summer. John is a member of the Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 200) and is Rocket and Ashtanga Vinyasa trained (300 hrs) through The Yoga People. He also holds a 100 hrs certificate for Yin Yoga and tries to attend a wide variety of classes in search of new experiences and new ideas to incorporate into his teaching style. “……The wonderful thing about yoga is that I’m learning all the time!” John currently teaches Dynamic Vinyasa and Yin Yoga classes on a regular weekly basis at Samsara and Virgin Active in Wandsworth. He also runs an independent advanced Rocket class with his friend and fellow yoga teacher, Andrew Thomas. He is a member of The Yoga People Teacher Training Faculty and has regularly participated in a continuing series of London 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa training courses which he believes are “…….a terrific experience for students and teachers alike….” July 2015
