James brings a unique understanding and approach to yoga having an extensive athletic background. He has competed in giant slalom skiing, swimming, football, basketball, speed skating, shot-put and tennis.
After graduating Syracuse University, James became a certified trainer where he began developing specific programs for his clients' needs.
Opening an organic restaurant in Westchester County, NY, in 2006 the stress of its success took a toll. Seeking balance, centered calm and strength both mentally and physically, James was introduced to yoga, instantly loved it, and became certified through YogaWorks in NYC (2008). James feels lucky to have studied with his mentor Jodie Rufty, an advanced yogi and senior teacher trainer. Bringing a mindful approach, James style is built on form and foundation helping students understand proper alignment in poses by applying assists during asana practice.
