About James Boag:
James is known for bringing the traditional, scriptural teachings of yoga to vivid life, in ways which elucidate their relevance and practical application in our lives today. His powerful a capella kirtans invite participants to bathe in rich sound: cleansing, energising, and heightening awareness of the depth and glory of our inner selves.
James has been teaching yoga and leading kirtan regularly since 2003 and teaching since 1993. In 2005, while he was teaching English at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, James began studying Sanskrit. Since 2008, James has spent over half his time in Mysore, where he is now working towards an MA in Sanskrit, while also leading kirtan and courses on the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras attended by international students of many of Mysore's renowned yogasana teachers.
European Tour 2011
On his tour James gives an introduction to Indian Philosophy and his Vedic world view: the purpose of life and how to realise it; yoga as the practical school of Indian philosophy that works with human nature to harness the miraculous gifts of our bodies, senses, minds and intellects for the good of the whole.
He also talks about the practical ways to integrate the teaching and techniques of yoga into all aspects of our daily life, for greater efficiency, joy and sustainability in all we do.
