About Yogi JD

Yogi JD discovered Kundalini yoga in 2004 while living in Vancouver. Shortly afterwards he attended a Kundalini Men’s camp, which was a life-changing experience. Ever since, he has sought opportunities to deepen his spiritual connection with courses, retreats, teaching, and a regular practice.

After years of dealing with depression and addiction to drugs and alcohol, Yogi JD is now in full recovery – sober and content. He credits Kundalini yoga and the 12-Step approach of AA with with providing the tools to connect with his higher self.
