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.
