Our Boca Raton Yoga Instructors
Founder of Yoga South
Group Classes & Private Instruction
James began his yogic journey over twenty years ago while he was searching for an activity to deepen his martial arts training. Several years later, he took his first Ashtanga class taught by Dominic Corigliano, in San Diego. It wasn’t long until he found his place in this new discipline. He brings the movement skills of the martial arts, with his healing experience and anatomical knowledge as a neuromuscular therapist to present yoga to others.
Whether adjusting a student in a pose or giving a healing massage, one can feel the intent and presence in his touch. He is committed to developing himself to serve as a bridge for others to reconnect to their natural strength, stability and joy. James’ energy and presence are extraordinary and immensely strong, yet deeply compassionate.
