Really athletic class- got a good sweat on. Sometimes John got a little too peppy for me, but it could just be because his class was kicking my butt that I felt that way.



John Nelson

John Nelson moved to Chicago from the Washington, D.C. area in the summer of 2005. He found Lotte Berk method in a teeny-tiny studio back in D.C. the following summer. That Fall, he was lucky enough to find exhale in Chicago and making the transition from regular guest to teacher trainee in 2007 was an easy one. With a background in dance, the biggest challenge he had was taking yoga classes! Since then, yoga has become an integral part of his life and he prides himself in the transformation. Since graduating from Columbia College Chicago in 2009 with a major in Musical Theatre and a minor in Playwriting, John has been working in a musical theatre writing workshop at both the Theatre Building Chicago and at Light Opera Works. John has always been interested in being on Broadway; however, he has recently discovered he would rather see his name in lights as the writer of the smash hit, not the lead performer. Keep your eyes open, it'll happen soon! In the Fall of 2009, John was named an Ambassador for lululemon's 900 Michigan location - go check out his picture on the wall. In November 2010, John was asked to be an Ambassador for GGO organics clothing. In May of 2010, John's Core Fusion Sport class was named the best fitness class in Chicago by Mint Male Magazine and in September of 2010 John became Mint Male's yoga columnist. Also in November 2010, John founded his own pottery company, ZenMud pottery. Each piece is made by John while he is in a meditation. No piece is planned ahead and no piece is the same.
