James has been taking classes his whole adult life and, following life altering trauma and subsequent relocation to Tucson, he finally came to yoga and meditation taking his first meaningful classes at Tucson Yoga with Frank Jude Boccio, Thomas Beall and Sally Weber, he comes to teaching yoga through physical trauma, chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
James’ classes begin with the exhale, are mindful and breath focused, finding center and balance in each posture; a slow focused flow expanding and softening on the inhale extending and moving on the exhale.
Depending on the class, James may include mindful mediation, walking meditation, chanting/mantra/nada/sound, yoga nidra, trataka, asana for your dosha or LifeForce® yoga techniques.
James was Hatha certified in 2014 at 7 Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona. He has a Yin certification (with TY’s founder) Debbie Daly in 2015/16 and just completed the LifeForce® yoga for depression and anxiety certification Level 1 training.
