About John Quirk 

Moving from corporate life as a television producer into teaching yoga and meditation full time in 2014, John possesses a unique mix of being a quick thinking leader and a carefully listening student.

John began a rigorous full-time teaching schedule of around 20 classes a week throughout New York and New Jersey and eventually decided he needed to take a break. He decided to venture to Costa Rica and the more people he told about the trip, the more people wanted to go.

Without knowing what a yoga retreat was, he was leading one and that trip changed his guests lives and his own in a profound way. It led to him leading impactful yoga and wellness retreats around the world and eventually moving to San Diego.

John now leads a retreat a month in Southern California and continues to look for the best places around the world the bring people for healing. John and his team have provided retreats in San Diego for folks from around the world from all different backgrounds and it is his goal to turn San Diego into a haven for growth, healing and learning.

John’s passion to teach has never wavered as he has now moved into teaching other leaders how to run their own transformational in-person events. John is also passionate about helping teachers and healers share their gifts and to make a great living doing it.

John offers his time as a mentor to new teachers, teaches free classes in his community and works with rescue animals, animal rescue organizations and the local food bank in San Diego. His rescue dog Lola is his biggest fan!
