John Levis LMT discovered the practice of yoga in 1999 where he learned the benefit of mobility through mindful movement, stretching and joint mobility in order to achieve optimal alignment and has been practicing ever since! The practice of yoga cleared him years of chronic back pain and improved overall posture and well-being. He began teaching an alignment based yoga practice in 2003 enlightening students of every age and body type of the life long benefits. The greatest part of teaching was watching the students benefit greatly. John has taught in many teacher trainings and his practice has taken him to Costa Rica, India, Egypt, Bali and Singapore. In 2005 John got certified Thai Yoga Bodywork/Massage in 2005 and has been working on people ever since. He graduated from American Institute of Alternative Medicine completing a 680 hour program in therapeutic massage, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, orthopedic assessments, anatomy, physiology & pathology as well as receiving a Medical Massage Therapy Certification in 2020, becoming a licensed massage therapist in 2021. He has also received certificates in NeuroMuscular Reprogramming (NMR) and Functional Integrative Therapy (FIT). John is also a Certified Sommelier, former Outdoor School Guide for REI and avid mountain biker and outdoor enthusiast.
