Unbelievable wisdom on the body

I encountered Jonathan years ago when he was teaching yoga in Brooklyn and have followed him through his evolutions. As a long time yogi, I think I know so much about alignment and my body, and then he suggests a little tweak and my body releases in profound ways. The podcast brings the advice to my ears, to take what works as I’m doing my daily walks. And Alex is a good foil. Thanks so much

Amazing

Johnathan is amazing. I swear he’s a genius. Every other sentence I’m like “Ohhh that’s why......” He really helps you to understand how the body works. The how and why of your body’s alignment can unlock so many of the questions you may have about your pain or why your body seems to behave the way it does. You might think this all sounds wacky, but when you apply it, it all makes perfect sense. I love this guy. Highly recommended.
