New Orleans native Sean Johnson is the founder of the band and loves to inspire people through a creative integration of imaginative music, yoga, storytelling, and poetry. His passion for music ranges from a deep appreciation for the transcendental power of rock, Irish folk music, Indian and Sufi devotional music. He’s been leading kirtan for the last twenty years. His voice is equally influenced by his roots in New Orleans, vocal exploration of his ancestral Irish heritage, as well as study in Indian vocal music and love of the path of bhakti yoga– the yoga of the heart.
Sean is also the founder of Wild Lotus Yoga studios in New Orleans, and Soul School, an interdisciplinary yoga and spirituality teacher training program that focuses on teaching yoga with skill and imagination. He has a Master’s degree from The Naropa Institute with a focus on teaching chant as spiritual practice, has written articles for Yoga Journal, and is the co-curator and co-producer of Putumayo’s music for yoga series. His signature “Bhakti On The Mat” yoga workshops, often accompanied by the band, playfully weaves yoga, live music, chanting, storytelling, poetry, and ritual.
