Exercise Alchemist. Tai Chi Teacher. Storyteller. Atomic Love Bomb. Author. American Ninja Warrior. OCR World Champion Finalist.


Jonathan is passionate about the power of movement and play to empower all of humankind. He started exercising to "look better naked", but fitness ended up radically transforming his life.  He was able to overcome a destructive teenage drug addiction using only movement, meditation, and nature connection.


Jonathan has been empowering others through movement for 19 years, has a BS in Psychology, as well as 11 of the most widely recognized fitness certifications in the USA. He has been featured as fitness and tai chi expert on network television (ABC, FOX), is a published author (Harper Collins), and has presented his work at a diverse array of places, from guest lecturing at colleges (NYU, Union College) to leading rituals at Burning Man to leading retreats into the wilderness.


Jonathan leads by example, as both an athlete and healer. He finished 7th place at the 2016 Citifield Spartan Race, 75th at the OCR World Championships (2016), and competed on Season 8 and Season 9 of the hit NBC TV show American Ninja Warrior, where he was a City Finalist! He lives in NYC, and hasn’t been sick once in the last 12 years, thanks to his beast immune system.

When not teaching students or training, he can be found snowboarding or rock climbing in the mountains, leading “ShadowBreaker” (an early morning dance ritual), or playing with his 2 year old daughter Emma!

Jonathan is also a Medical Qigong Healer, disciple of Master Sat Hon, and a 22nd generation lineage holder in the Taoist Dragon Gate School.
