Jim has been practising yoga since 1990 and since then has taught several thousand people the art. He has also trained dozens of teachers on the teacher training course he founded in 2000 which is certified at the 500 hour level (Vajrasati).
Jim trained with direct students of Iyengar (Rajiv Chanchani, Shyam Metha, Jean Maslin and more) and was a member of the Iyengar teachers association for a decade before respectfully rescinding his membership to concentrate on Vajrasati Yoga.
He has taught Yoga retreats and breaks in India, Thailand, Mexico, Morocco, Italy, Spain, France, La Gomera, Sweden, Greece, Turkey and Egypt and co- founded Yoga Explorers - a yoga travel company with a focus on beautiful accommodation in inspiring locations.
