John M.
My yoga journey started with various misconceptions of what I was getting myself into and what yoga really was as it was very far from any training I had done as an athlete growing up. I was immediately drawn in by the physical challenge of the Baptiste Power Vinyasa sequence. After practicing for about 6 months, I moved forward with enrolling in the 200 hour teacher training at BIG Power Yoga in 2017. I started teaching two weeks after graduation, and at the same time enrolled in a year long 300 hour teacher training at the same studio. There I further enhanced my understanding of the practice, anatomy, philosophy, and ability to tailor sequences specific to where students are in their practice and what I want to create in my class. In my spare time, I'm a National Account Manager at ExxonMobil. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers), and graduated from Penn State in 2013. In addition to yoga, I have a love for football, travel, cooking, snowboarding, podcasts, and reading. If you'd like to learn more, I'll see you in class! Thanks, and namaste.
