Somatic Yoga for Fitness and Vitality

If you like the feeling of being strong and flexible, and relish that ... "something else"... that comes from a great yoga class, come join me for a session. I like to emphasize the somatic* experience of yoga. Ultimately, it's the sensation we're looking for. So I use alignment to point you to a sensation. That's where the fastest progress comes from, too - and the greatest benefits.

Golijeh G. - Yoga

"I’ve been attending John’s yoga class for about a year. These have been some of the most rewarding yoga experiences, for body and mind, I’ve had in many years. Simple, deep, challenging, meditative, wise, joyful, light hearted, are the words that come to mind in describing his instruction style. I’ve been raving about his classes to any one who listens. I can’t recommend him enough."

Movement Meditation

Meditation and workout for the inner landscape

For folks who want the benefits of meditation, but don't seem to find it from sitting still, Cardio QiGong and "Feel Awesome" QiGong/Active Somatic Meditation leans on this ancient Chinese practice, updated for our modern sensibilities. With a combination of movement and breath work, we take a deep dive into your internal awareness. And you'll feel awesome doing it, and you'll feel awesome after you're done. Add a smokin' soundtrack, and it becomes Cardio-Dance QiGong - more fun than should be legal!
