Ian Johnson

Ian Johnson

Growing up, Ian played competitive baseball and developed severe shoulder and lower back pain after many years of playing. His mom suggested yoga to help relieve some of his pain and tightness. At the recommendation of his mother, Ian decided to try Bikram Yoga. During his first class, he could barely touch his toes and every posture felt uncomfortable. Over time, with continued practice, Ian's body opened up and his back pain disappeared. After practicing Bikram Yoga for seven years, Ian wanted to share the benefits of hot yoga with others and completed the Fall 2013 Teacher Training at the Bikram Yoga College of India.

 

   Ian loves sports and has helped many athletes open their bodies, heal injuries and meditate. Constantly working to improve his own practice and teaching, Ian continues to study with renowned teachers, such as Mary Jarvis, and competes annually in the USA Yoga National Asana Competition.  Ian is currently the 2022 USA Yoga National Champion of the Adult Men's Division ages 18-49 . He was invited by the Internation Yoga Sport Federation to represent the United States in the Men's Adult Division in December 2022 in Bangalore, India. Ian placed 5th in the 2022 International Yoga Asana Competition in India!

In November 2015, Ian purchased Hot Yoga Plainsboro, which closed over the pandemic when the lease ended. In June, 2021, Ian and his wife, Carrie opened Yoga Robbinsville. Ian is a Bikram Yoga teacher, he is a certified ShapeShifting teacher (Mary Jarvis) and he is the coach for the NJ competitive yoga-sport athletes.
