Announcement - John Friend is Back from Hiatus & Ready to Teach!

Announcement: John Friend is returning to teaching with a new "Roots" methodology and upcoming winter tour dates.

Or so says the official announcement made on his new website, The new site is pretty basic, but includes some upcoming tour dates and a special (but not spicy) page on 'teacher student relationship'. There is no mention, however, of Anusara Yoga or anything 'scandal' related. Check out his new site announcement below and let us know what you think!

Thank you for visiting my new website, which contains my teaching schedule through the end of 2012, and general information on my current teaching style and methodology.

In October I return to public teaching with a refreshed view and rededication to healing through disciplined practice. I have spent this year in deep, humbled self-reflection, which has led me to realigning with principles of inner harmony, individual accountability, and open-hearted service to the whole.

This Fall I return to teaching as an independent hatha yoga teacher presenting the fundamentals of my style of modern hatha yoga: positive mind-body discipline, cutting-edge postural alignment, and artistic exploration.

I am very fired up about sharing my new insights and practices for optimal asana alignment, which are both powerfully therapeutic and energetically transformative on every level of being. One of my new practices that I will be teaching in weekend workshops this Fall is an innovative practice sequence called, The Roots.’

I hope that I will get the opportunity to share with you directly in the near future. Thank you for your support, compassion, and dedication to excellence.

– John
