John Levis is a Certified Anusara® Yoga Instructor, E-RYT 500 and has well over 1,000 hours of training. He grew up playing ice-hockey and in college found an interest in weight training. Looking for something more, he discovered yoga in the year 2000. A perfect complement to any workout, John found yoga to be fulfilling & forgiving, extremely powerful and therapeutic. Uniting the mind with the virtues of the heart, yoga proved to reveal and cultivate that ‘something more’. He no longer suffers from chronic back pain and has actually grown over one inch since the age of 30 and feels more ‘capable’ after 40. Combining inspiration with humor, he gets a kick out of watching students discover what they are capable of as they learn the therapeutic and empowering value of the practice. John offers local and international yoga retreats, workshops, Thai Yoga Bodywork and teaches privately and publicly throughout northern NJ.
