In 1995, John was certified to teach Ashtanga yoga by Guruji. John incorporates design and yoga philosophies, adding a very precise, detailed and colourful metaphorical presentation to his teaching. His highly individual, analytical and sensitive approach touches deeply the students who work with him, resulting in a strong following. John now mainly focuses on spreading his understanding of the vinyasa count in international workshops as well as locally in Cornwall, England.

John is also known for his illustrations/charts of Ashtanga yoga primary, intermediate and advanced series which have been published in Ashtanga Yoga by Lino Miele, and which continue to circulate worldwide.
