Johnathon Dao

E-motion Yoga

Dr Johnathon Dao MD(AM) is the founder of E-motion Yoga, and has been teaching Yoga & Qigong for over 2 decades with an emphasis on emotional healing . While during a 10 year permanent stint in India studying Ayurveda, Yoga and other Sacred healing arts he stumbled across an ancient movement that appears to be the oldest medicine on earth which he shares with E-motion Yoga. 

Trying to heal the mind with a sick mind is like trying to catch a fish with your hand, its’ very slippery, very difficult, yet this is the current western psychological model. I prefer healing the mind through the body. This is the way animals in nature do it………and this is how our ancestors did it!” –  Johnathon Dao (E-motion Yoga Founder)

“E-motion yoga combines traditional yoga practices with ancient organic movements that release trauma and emotional blocks to facilitate self-regulation and healing. E-motion Yoga helps to access the point at which the body holds on to stuck emotions and lets the body guide the release of built up tension though the natural and effortless process of involuntary shaking.” – Professor Marc Cohen (RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.)

“After attending my first E-motion Yoga Class my whole body was buzzing, alive and invigorated yes peacefully calm and clear. I knew that I had discovered a profound practice that was going to support me in my journey of self-discovery and take me deeper into my own yoga practice.” – Emma Grant (Red Tent Yoga Studio Byron Bay)

“Shaking’s great. Shaking’s one of the oldest practices known to man. Standing round a fire and connecting with the earth and moving energy through the body because it’s where a lot of our stuff can get trapped. Yeah, I would recommend it.”  – Jerome Flynn (Actor)

"E-motion Yoga is a powerful practice in moving the subtle stuck energy in the body. I found the practice helpful after a traumatic situation. It helps me feel more, and enables me to be relaxed and accept life as it is with an open heart." – Alex Grant (founder of findyoga.com.au and co-creator of Byron Spirit Festival)
