Because of his upbringing, John loves traveling to see and study unique cultures.​ John says, “There is nothing like sitting in a tree-stand meditating and reading to refresh the soul, or the rush of wind as you ride down a country road on a motorcycle to clear the mind and invigorate the heart”.

Power of Presence

Clyde Hampton Jr.

#ComeBackBetter is the game plan and I promise you everyday I will show up better than I was yesterday ready to help you reach your goals. This phrase is not just about your fitness journey but life. We all wear so many hats... Mothers, Fathers, Daughters, Uncles, Employees, Bosses etc. I believe everyday we should look to improve on at least 1 of those roles at least a little bit.

Strategic Personal & Professional Boundaries to ensure Wellbeing

A monthly open forum discussion

Phaedra O'Connell



The purpose of my teachings is to offer a way to find realization of the self through yoga and healing. The art of living in rhythm with nature and harnessing inner resiliency to life changes evolves from these teachings. The divine mission of opening hearts and sharing knowledge flows from my lineage of yoga gurus shines through me. I teach how to integrate the practices which nurtures healthy life choices. In individual sessions I empathetically pinpoint regressive behavior patterns (samsaras), which can gently evolve into healthy habits. Self observations allow students to let go of familiar unhealthy patterns; replaced with simple ayurvedic daily rituals, yoga, meditation, sound healing and reiki. The well being of all my students remains at the forefront of my concern
