John Salvatore, a native New Yorker, started practicing Bikram Yoga in 2000 and became certified as an instructor in the spring of 2001. As a former dancer, John has endured many injuries and surgeries, including a double hip replacement. This yoga has been his medicine. Practicing Bikram yoga every day, he continues to heal his mind, body and soul and attributes his positive state of mind to the 90 minute powerful and restorative practice in the hot room. John just completed a nine year run as an actor in the hit show Jersey Boys in Las Vegas.
