James is an overseas Manbassador based in Birmingham, Great Britain. He’s a pretty normal guy who has just got into yoga – particularly MFY – as a way to cross-train for his main sports of rock climbing and mud running. He’s by no means a man-mountain, but goes to show what you can do with a bit of determination and a great trainer.
The attraction of Man Flow Yoga is the focus on fitness of body. So many yoga studios feel the need to inject unnecessary ceremony into their classes, which is pretty alienating to some folks (James included). By stripping out the “namaste” elements of yoga, MFY let’s the student get to the mental benefits of the exercise in their own time. If that means throwing in a few minutes of meditation every now and again, great!
When James isn’t running Tough Mudder and looking for other adrenaline kicks, he is a Barrister who practises criminal law. In such a stressful work environment it really helps to take a moment each day to pause and breathe.
