ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: John-Payton Rowley is a Certified Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer, Athletic Trainer, Mentor, and Youth Development Coach. He started his career at the YMCA working with the youth leadership program. He received his teacher training through CITYOGA School of Yoga and Health which changed his life and gave him an invaluable deeper understanding and connection to the earth, our environment, and how we grow our food. He has a powerful intention to connect yoga and community gardens and to showcase the love and understanding of our community on a deep level. He is the resident yoga teacher at SoBeFit in South Broad Ripple and manifests human transformation, mind, body, and spirit.

“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” — May Sarton
