John began his practice of yoga in 1996 taking a series of multi week asana classes offered by a local wellness center. To get more guidance between sessions he turned to texts on yoga and discovered the rich philosophy and metaphysics behind the tradition.
In 1998 he moved back to Bucks County and took his first class with Parvathi Nanda Nath. Before the first class was over he knew he had found not only his asana teacher but also his spiritual guide. Later that year he joined her first teacher apprenticeship program and began teaching in the SRY (Saraswati River Yoga) tradition 1999.
John has continued to deepen his studies of Yoga and Tantra under the direction of Parvathi Nanda Nath. His passion for learning and the joy he gets from passing along what he has understood is a daily reminder of grace that led him to that first class in 1998. He is eternally grateful for Parvathi’s continued guidance and support through the years.
