John has been a student of Yoga, of AVY since 1987, though during retrospective reverie, john realises that much of his early years at school where spent daydreaming – “eyes fixed in a wide gaze out through the window as if travelling to another dimension of reality..”
When does one start yoga? John questions and believes that once you start to question where are you, where have you come from, what are you, what are you doing and where are you going? when these questions percolate and bubble to the surface, you become aware you are already on the Journey of enquiry, the enquiry into your true nature and purpose for being here on this physical plan. It is through the practice of AVY and deep enquiry into the self that John has brought all his earlier experiences and meditations into his life work of sharing.
John’s teaching is therefore very metaphorical, analytical, technical, from the heart and often humorous, his teaching style appeals to students of many backgrounds and nationalities, teaching workshops throughout the world. John remains an avid student of yoga and relationship fascinated by the linking of different traditions and cultures through symbols, language and the Counted Method of Transcendental Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
John and Julia Together
John and Julia see that yoga begins with understanding relationship. To listen and give space to one and other and in the coming together as one, to remain true to one unique self, to not eclipse one and other, but to come together in harmony and synergy, sharing a greater experience of this love with all who come into their space.
