After many years working in IT at a busy law firm, James was suffering from stress, burnout and a bad back. Consequently, he left his job and trained in yoga and structural bodywork.
As well as being an MHFA instructor, he is a yoga teacher and yoga therapist with over 16 years experience, specialising in mental health and addiction. He has worked with some of the leading mental health charities, rehab clinics and the NHS.
