How Yoga Serves Jonny

Practicing yoga is the greatest selfish deed one can honor him- or herself with. Teaching yoga is the most selfless offering Jonny looks forward to every day.

Words of Wisdom for Students

Each class is a new, rewarding experience. Whether it’s your first or hundredth class, your mind will reset and your body will recalibrate on the mat at the beginning of each practice. Be present, honest, mindful and aware of how you feel while breathing through a pain-free range of motion.


It was in 2009 when Jonny took his first Bikram yoga class in San Francisco. He found mental clarity, solace and experienced the best, non-interrupted sleep in years. After fifteen years in a profession in finance (while daydreaming of the next yoga class each day at work), Jonny left the highly stressful corporate world in 2014. He practiced hot yoga and traveled frequently, and soon realized tat yoga was how he wanted to serve others. Jonny attended Evolation’s Hot Primary Teacher Training in Santa Barbara in the Fall of 2016 under the guidance of Evolation Co-Founders Mark Drost and Zefea Samson, and became 200-RYT Certified in November 2016.
