YOURYOGA

”Yoga is the dance of every cell to the music of the breath.”Debasish Mridha

YOURYOGA
 

If you’re an experienced yogi, Namaste. If you’re completely new, or feel like a beginner, welcome, you’ve got a great journey ahead of you. (Heads up, feeling like a beginner is THE place to be.) 
 

Not simply postures, Yoga is how we think, how we work with challenge and ultimately how we make friends with ourselves; enjoying our bodies as we move through life. 

 

I've seen how yoga can benefit every-body, irrespective of age, experience, size or flex-i-fucking-bility;  Yoga transforms. It teaches us to start where we are. Right here. Right Now.

Right! Let's do this!

YOURMEDITATION

"True meditation is about being fully present with everything that is, including discomfort and challenges. It is not an escape from life, but a celebration of it all.”Craig Hamilton

 

YOURMEDITATION
 

You may not have realised you have a say in what and how you think. Perhaps you've tried meditating, coming to the conclusion that your mind was too wild. I know that mind only too well, but luckily there's NO mind too wild.

 

Science confirms the potential for stress and anxiety reduction, lowered blood pressure, improved sleep and better concentration. Rigorous testing's proved it’s not magic, just practice.

 

My goal isn't to erase our prickly parts (although this may happen), but instead to get in approval and make friends with these aspects. Befriending these parts is when shit gets real. This is when genuine magic starts to come into play.

YOURLIFE

"You are the sky, everything else is just the weather.Pema Chodron

YOURLIFE

Yoga goes way beyond what happens on the mat, just as meditation’s so much more than the moments you're sitting (or laying down.) These are the vehicles to take us to a more joyful, connected and meaningful life. Challenge doesn't go away but changing how we approach it defines who we are and how we feel.

Improving our relationship with our body-mind is the foundation to make tectonic shifts in our life. Altering our relationship with the inner world, evloves the relationship with our outer world, shaping the people around us and the environments and situations we find ourselves thriving in.

ABOUTME

"It's not about how clumsily we fall over, but how gracefully we get back up again."James Huxley

MYSTORY

 

Since my first yoga teacher training in 2014 I've learnt a lot, including exploration of Buddhist and Yogic meditation, energising tantric breathing practices, fitness, Eastern & Western interpretations of yoga, and fasting, diets (and subsequently anti-diet culture) and me's groups. 


So far my journey has taken me to Himalayan caves, Sri Lankan ashrams, shamanic ceremonies, European beach retreats and wet muddy festivals where people really don’t want to do yoga.

I'm passionate about self-empowerment, feeling, laughing, embracing challenge, making change and finding the joy and playfulness, even in times of contraction. I love music (listen here) and have run a series of workshops with hip-hop and yoga. When I'm not teaching yoga, I may well be making music or skateboarding.

“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”Franz Kafka

MYREVIEWS

Having waxed lyrical about myself already, here's what some other people think of me...

ALI 25|03|20

Teacher

"James is one of the most authentic yogis I’ve met, not because his Sanskrit or knowledge of the sutras is amazing (though they are pretty good) but because he acts and speaks from direct experience, gained through a deep personal practise. His teaching comes from exactly the same place, which allows his students to truly open, laugh, see more clearly and be vulnerable, while being held with love and non judgement."
