In 1995 John was certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Shri K Pattabhi Jois. John incorporates design philosophies with yoga philosophies, adding a very precise, detailed, colourful and metaphorical presentation to his teaching.
His highly individual, analytical and sensitive approach touches deeply, the students who work with him. John now mainly teaches International Workshops and Teacher Training with Lucy Crawford Scott, David Keil and Greg Nardi.

John is well known for his illustrations/charts (line drawings) of Ashtanga Yoga Primary and Intermediate and Advanced Series, which continue to circulate Worldwide, having been published in chart form and then later in book form in Lino Miele’s book “Astanga Yoga”. These illustrations are the inspiration for a range of Yoga clothing and accessories that are now exclusively available at Yoga Bliss.
