Tina James

Tina is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, and is known for her chanting, choreographic sequencing, and knowledge of the subtle body. Widely considered to be a "teacher's teacher," she transmits the Jivamukti lineage as a mentor at the Jivamukti teacher training and running many of her own teacher trainings over the last 10 years. Tina’s class’s are infused with humor, a vigorous practice, as well as major rehab for serious injuries, and a different approach to assisting for total self-transformation. Incorporating vigorous flow sequences, along with an integration of yogic philosophy, chanting, and strong emphasis on activism and ethical vegetarianism, Tina’s classes create a shift in perception where magic rises. Each of her dynamic and vigorous classes inspires students to honor and connect to body and spirit. Students regularly note the playful element of her classes and her deep sense of humor. She is known for her impassioned, unique teachings & dynamic classes, with attention to detail, precise alignment and a strong sense of empowerment. Tina has a clear vision of a community where knowledge and spiritual activism could create a space of healing, whilst working with indigenous cultures side by side to re-create ancient rituals and ceremonies. Tina works on whistler ski patrol and is a keen alpine mountaineer, all her inspiration comes from the mountains and the wild and all the beings that inhabit this beautiful blue planet. Tina humbly offers reverence and gratitude to her Gurus Sharon Gannon-ji and David-ji, for their attention to detail, courage, political activism and radical natures, wisdom, guidance and pure love.
