John Elliott

John’s yoga journey began in 2001 to heal old discomforting injuries. He was in search of a more physical holistic approach to build strength and avoid surgery. John connected with Bikram yoga, finding the series beneficial for building a strong healthy body and mind and in fall of 203 completed his teacher’s certification.  His personal story inspired him to teach, as he knew first hand the healing power of a consistent dedicated daily yoga practice. John’s passion for the practice grows as he observes and guides his students through their own experience, bearing witness to constant progress and evolution. Today, John is pain-free and believes “the yoga just works”.  Now a world-traveling instructor, John’s knowledge, humor, and contagious enthusiasm will make you crave his class, as he always leaves you challenged and wanting more.
