Ciao! I’m Johnny La Pasta. Welcome to my website! I am a writer, yoga instructor, foodie, and adventurer based in Long Beach, CA. This website is one of my passion projects through which I share everything from lifestyle essays to yoga tips to original recipes and more. My intention in everything I write is to entertain and education and to inform and inspire all of us to live our best lives. I sincerely hope you enjoy what Johnny La Pasta has for you!

Here is a little bit more about what content you can expect from Johnny La Pasta –


Mindfulness & Spirituality

I am an advocate for more mindful living and spiritual reflection. As I continue on my own journey of evolution, I discover many ideas and philosophies on how we might elevate our lives in these areas. Thus, some of the content I share will be essays and think pieces I hope will inspire us to go inward and grow.


Yoga holds a very important space in my life. Yoga is not only a practice I do for my body, but also a practice I do that influences and informs the way I perceive and interact with the world and beyond. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and have been teaching professionally for 6 years. Here I will share content about yoga sequences, posture and transition breakdowns, and themes for teachers and practitioners, advice for yoga teachers, and my thoughts on yogic concepts and principles. Check out my Yoga Services Page if you or your business is interested in working with me in some capacity.

Lifestyle & Wellness

As a proponent of building happy and healthy lifestyles, I will share content revolving around practices and so forth to integrate into your own lifestyle and promote overall wellness physically, mentally, and emotionally.


Raised in an Italian-American family, I have always been a passionate home cook. Over the years, many people have asked me to share my recipes with them, which helped inspire me to enter the world of blogging. My recipes vary from traditional, indulgent Italian dishes that have been in my family for generations to healthy, wholesome concoctions that I have come up with on my own and support the healthy lifestyle I live. My recipes are generally simple, accessible for most levels, and real. My photos might not be Pinterest-mom quality, but if you follow the directions, you can trust you are going to taste great results. I hope you enjoy cooking these recipes for you and those you love!


Travel has been a love of mine since I was young. I have spent a lot of my twenties traveling around the world exploring, learning, and enjoying. I will produce travel guides, briefs, and tip pieces for some of the destinations I visit and hope that these may serve you in your own travels!


As a creative person, I believe that we are not bound to one medium or style. I feel inspired to write about something, I will write it about it. I feel inspired to share it, I will share it. And so, you may see even more content on Johnny La Pasta that I hope you enjoy as well.
