We are pretty sure that we’ve met the most compassionate, sweet man on the planet. He has this uncanny way of getting anyone he meets to smile wide. When you’re near him you know that kindness is alive and well and that choosing to see the beauty in all experiences is the way to go. John has been one of our greatest teachers not just for the staff but also for the community. Thank you John for being full of light. We love you!
What are you passionate about outside of yoga?
Dancing and music – the rhythm and beat move me; Sailing – respect for the awesome power of nature and the fine line one can reach when catching the wind with one pontoon on the catamaran precarious in the air and the other pontoon humming; and most of all Sharing – nothing more inspiring and warming than experiencing in silence or listening and sharing ones story.
What is your favorite posture?
The posture at the end of a session in savasana when ones core starts to quiver, eyes close tight and tears of joy flow from the creases.
What do you love about the Moksha Series?
I only know the Moksha series. From what I have observed I love people’s attitude of support – don’t sweat the small stuff, pardon the pun, but it is all small stuff and I sweat puddles.
What is the most important thing you have learned in a yoga class?
Gratitude, I am thankful for each moment.
What is one thing you can’t live without?
Never thought about that question. Other than the necessities of life, I believe I could live without anything – faith, hope and love are the things that come to mind. I believe we need faith that there is something more, hope that we can make a difference and love encompasses all.
What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Moksha community?
Sharing gratitude. Sharing a silent yoga session, a vigorous flow or yin session without speaking a word is sharing an experience. My favourite thing about sharing an experience is the gratitude it brings to me knowing there are many people who can’t share the same experience.
