John Schumacher

John started to practice yoga in 1970 and began teaching in 1973.   He first became aware of B.K.S. Iyengar in 1975 when a friend shared a copy of the book “Light on Yoga”.  John often shares how his practice was transformed once he began studying with Mr. Iyengar. 

He knows first hand that studying with a deeply committed and experienced teacher not only transforms our practice; it can transform the way we connect to the world around us and, equally important, how we tune in to our inner world and ourselves.  This transformation begins with practice and evolves through practice, and John is convinced that by persistent and devoted practice, we can transform our physical and mental health and nourish our spirit in such a way as to be able to touch the world around us with awareness, peace, and love. 

He is known for his clear, precise style and his engaging sense of humor.  Yoga Journal described John as “one of 25 originals shaping yoga in America.”  John was named as 1 of 12 Lifetime Contributors to help authenticate yoga in America by Yoga Journal in 2015.

John is a certified Advanced Iyengar Yoga Teacher, one of only 14 teachers in the U.S. to hold that level of certification. He spent 36 years studying with B.K.S. Iyengar and also many years studying with internationally acclaimed teacher Dona Holleman.
