Cinematography, making music, practicing and teaching yoga, teaching Living Meditation, and raising his three sons are some of the ways James currently brings his particular gifts to the world. All of these require attention, discipline, alignment, effort and surrender. All can be done with a predominant experience of ease. James's classes give students an opportunity to discover how their unique gifts may serve their practice and their world. We experience yoga when effort and ease come together inside of us. We may work hard, but let's not make our practice hard work. Yoga is as much a state as a practice, and with this shift in perspective yoga becomes something we are as much as something we do.
