Johnny Benavente began practicing Ashtanga yoga at Miami Life Center studying Authorized Teacher Alexandra Santos. He traveled to Mysore, India in 2015 to study with R. Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute. He is also a student of Yoga philosophy and Sanskrit recitation of the old scriptures with Professor Nagaraja Rao, Dr. M.A. Jayashree and Professor Sri. M.A.Narasimhan.
In the summer of 2016 Johnny completed the Ashtanga Intensive at Miami Life Center studying under Tim Feldmann and Kino MacGregor and then traveled back to India on a temple pilgrimage under the guidance of Robert Moses to explore the philosophical aspect of the yoga practice and completed his second trip of studying under his teacher R. Sharath Jois at KPJAYI.
Currently you can find Johnny assisting in the Mysore room and teaching the community class. He is indebted to Tim and Kino and profoundly grateful for the opportunity to deepen his practice, studies, and teaching under such amazing mentors and teachers.
