John Friend

Co-Founder of the Bowspring Method

John Friend

John Friend has taught yoga for 39 years, presenting more than 800 yoga seminars in over 30 countries to tens of thousands of students. He created Anusara yoga in 1997, which is one of the leading modern postural yoga systems in the world. In 2012, John began studying the new alignment ideas of Desi Springer, which were in contradiction to his Anusara alignment principles. 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 and mind-body health with independent-thinking students. Currently, John lives in Denver, Colorado and teaches the Bowspring method trainings with Desi Springer worldwide.
