A Warm Welcome from John

For over 30 years a dedicated, direct and certified student of Guruji, Shri K Pattabhi Jois (Mysore, South India), John is still practicing and exploring the techniques passed directly to him and is continually discovering new meanings to the gems of wisdom that Guruji left for his students to pass on. Through the experience of teaching the Vinyasa count to fellow practitioners it has come to John’s understanding how the “Count” when recited (as if reciting a mantra by both teacher and practitioner) takes the practice to a whole new level of focus, bringing not just Breath and Body into synchronicity, but also Mind, Breath and Body. To self-count the vinyasa truly elevates an asana practice to a movement meditation, and hence the teacher and practitioner eclipse their own conditioned patterns, both physical and mental.

John’s Expanding Community

Joining John in his workshops, retreats and assisted self practices is an exploration into the deeper realms of the practice and a journey of internal discovery and reflection. The growing community of friends, apprentices, graduate teachers, teacher trainees and students is a wonderfully supportive, deeply caring and encouraging place to learn at first hand the teachings of Guruji through the thoughtful and thought provoking interpretations provided by John.  John and the teaching family below welcomes all on their journey of discovery!
