We are Johnny and Ali, two yogis on an adventure of a lifetime. We sold everything that we owned in the USA, and moved to Southeast Asia with only our backpacks and a laptop.
We initially planned to use this website as our travel blog, but then something remarkable happened.
Johnny leveraged his experience as a yoga studio owner and yoga teacher to land a job as the Yoga Programs Director at a beach resort in Koh Phangan Thailand, and Ali was hired at the same resort as the General Office and Detox Manager.
Our full time jobs sort of got in the way of growing our amazing travel blog. However, four years have flown by. In the meantime Johnny developed the curriculum for a Yoga Teacher Training program from scratch. This alignment based hatha/vinyasa 200 hour training has now been offered to over 200 students from more than 30 countries. It is recognized as one of the best trainings in the world for aspiring teachers who wish to take their professional teaching seriously. Ali has also immersed herself in the study of yoga and has become a renowned teacher of meditation and yogic healing arts.
Born in the United States, Johnny Nasello is an e-500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher & Personal Trainer. He specializes in alignment based yoga, and has a vast experience working with different body types, abilities, and ranges of motion.
