1/ When you were a kid what was your absolute favorite way to move?
-I always rode my bike. I mowed lawns to save up and buy a Schwinn Stingray 5 speed with stick shift, chopper handle bars, banana seat, gold. HOT!
2/ What was your inspiration to become a part of the yoga community?
-I first started practicing regularly at Bikram Yoga Lyndale in Jan 2002. The 90 minute 105 F classes totally kicked my butt. It hooked me and after about 100 classes I left for Bikram TT Los Angeles Sep 2002. I’ve been teaching ever since, serving the MSP Yoga Community. I attended CP Power TT in 2007 to expand my teaching and practice.
3/ What was your first time into The Firm like?
-My first experience at The Firm was a Spin Class at the old location. I was a pretty strong outdoor bicyclist & triathlete. LOUD, HIGH ENERGY, EXHILARATING, STRONG TEACHING AND STUDENT PARTICIPATION. I thought “these people are f’n crazy but they sure enjoy and are good at what they do!”
4/ What is one thing you would want everyone to know about The Firm?
-Great house of fitness and health driven by management and employees who are passionate about building community and happily delivering a powerful experience to all of the students every time.
5/ Last but not least, what’s one thing you cannot live without?
Movement, space and fresh air daily. Also a steady dose of good people.
We love you John and are grateful to have you on our team! #thefirmtribe register for his 11/15 6AM Yoga class ASAP!
