Joneil is a devoted student of Sri Dharma Mittra and the owner of Living Yoga. He believes yoga offers a powerful set of tools for achieving physical health and wellness, emotional healing and mental clarity, and most importantly, Self-discovery. He found yoga in 2011, when it helped him overcome the loss of a beloved pet.
A Dharma Yoga Registered Teacher, Joneil’s classes can be challenging, but he always encourages students to explore their limits safely. It brings him tremendous joy to see them achieve poses they never thought possible. In the style of his guru, his classes include a variety of backbends, hip openers, and at least one headstand. He also incorporates mantras, pranayama, and meditation for a complete practice.
Joneil spent nearly 2 decades as a television news producer, winning 2 Emmys, a Peabody, and a DuPont-Columbia Award for his work. As a former journalist at ABC News, CNN, and CBS News, he has a keen understanding of how yoga can help alleviate some of the intense pressures of the corporate world.
