John is a yoga lover and life coach who has been a community worker for 30 years. He is 22 years in recovery and first came across yoga through an Edinburgh Community Yoga Outreach class.
He recently travelled around the world and spent much of it learning and practicing yoga with yoga communities and teachers in many different countries. His passion is in making yoga more accessible and relevant to working class men in Scotland and he has recently set up the social enterprise Yogrow to combine his love of life coaching and yoga. He is also a passionate golfer and singer but thankfully his lack of skill at both, has very little impact on his enjoyment of these pastimes.
