SPACE co-founder John discovered yoga on a trip around India in his 20s, since when he has been practising yoga as discipline, exercise, and spiritual and moral journey. Yoga has become a way of life, helping him through the dark times and enlightening the path forward.
John has completed 700 hours of teaching training in India, in ‘Traditional Hatha’, ‘Modern Vinaysa’, and most recently ‘Synergy Yoga’ with his mentor and master yogi Simon Borg-Olivier. His classes are welcoming, open to all levels and are a balanced mixture of ancient and modern yogic traditions. He often leads from the front with few words and encourages active, fluid movement, and graceful transition between poses. Often set to curated music, John’s classes are a moving mediation delivered with refined teaching expertise and compassion for each human being on the mat.
Recently, John has undertaken numerous workshops related to healing trauma, and has begun incorporating various techniques into his classes. How we hold pain in our bodies fascinates John, and he is excited about the future of healing through yogic/somatic practices and sharing cutting edge modalities with his students.
