John Jay

John Jay discovered the benefits of a regular yoga practice while playing football at the University of San Diego. After completing trainings in both Hatha and Power Vinyasa styles, John Jay began instructing in 2010. Yoga’s vast array of traditions, schools and teachers allows each Yogi to blaze their own path organically; something that continues to excite him as both a student and teacher. As Lao Tzu said, “A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." Currently, John Jay is helping both novice and experienced Yogis evolve their practice, as both Manager of Indie Yoga and co-leader of Indie's Teacher Training Program.

Abigail McHugh

Abigail is from New Jersey, where she grappled with anxiety and depression until yoga and meditation helped me gain control of my mind and overcome my battles. These practices empowered her to master her mind, prompting her athletic and leadership-driven spirit to share her revelations with others. Relocating to Ocean Beach (OB) in 2015, she deepened her commitment by undergoing transformative Yoga Teacher Training at Indie Yoga. Watching the transformation of the hearts, mind, and spirits while building a relationship with her students is what keeps bringing her back to teach.

What Our Students Say

“Teacher training at Indie Yoga is more than learning the proper ways to queue someone into a yoga posture. It’s all the space in between those postures; it’s the journey and dance your mind, body, and soul takes to get there.”

- John
