Biographical Sketches Desi Springer & John Friend

John Friend 

John Friend has taught yoga for 38 years, presenting more than 800 yoga seminars in over 30 countries to tens of thousands of students. He created Anusara yoga in 1997, which has become one of the leading modern postural yoga systems in the world. After a personal wake-up call in 2012, John began studying the new alignment ideas of Desi Springer, which were in contradiction to his Anusara alignment principles. Over the next year John realized that the standard model of biomechanical alignment which he had practiced and taught for many years was based on some invalid assumptions including that the skeleton is the weight-bearing compressive structure that holds up the body. Supported by the emerging science in the field of fascia and its role in optimal posture and functional movement, John and Desi co-created the Bowspring method in 2013 to help people around the world take their health to a new level using a wavy, balanced, dynamic posture in their daily life. John loves to share his many years of studies of philosophy, physics and mind-body health with independent-thinking students. Currently, John lives in Denver, Colorado and teaches Bowspring method trainings with Desi Springer worldwide.
