John Jadryev

A self described "yoga junkie" John estimates he has participated in well over 1000 yoga classes from over 40 different teachers and that's what he brings to his classes; a little of this and a little of that, favoring no particular style, yet respecting all within a measured, gentle context offering the opportunity to explore and deepen each asana.
This class is for those with injuries and conditions that may not allow them to enjoy a faster-paced, flowing yoga class. We will breathe, focus on strength, balance, and flexibility. There will be a strong focus on breathing and deep relaxation.
