Terry JamesRegular Teacher
Terry James was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States to an American father and Kiwi (New Zealand) mother. In 2009 he graduated from Point Park University with a Bachelors degree in Cinema & Digital Arts.
Always holding an active lifestyle, he pursued physical interests in ice hockey, cycling, trekking, and yoga.
At age 22 he decided to leave the start of a career in filmmaking and moved to New Zealand. After almost a year in NZ, he wanted to see more of the world, starting with India. While in Austria he began looking for a physical activity to keep mentally and physically balanced. He took up the practice of Bikram Yoga at our studio, having only done it twice before, three years prior. After practicing consistently and volunteering at the studio for six months, doors opened and Terry was able to attend the Spring 2012 teacher training in Los Angeles.
The desire to attend teacher training came from my consistent practice and study of the 26 and 2 series. By really paying attention and learning the effectiveness of the postures to heal the body and mind, I felt that this yoga was special, something worth dedicating my life to. By not only practicing, but by teaching the yoga, I would be able to share my beliefs and passion for Bikram Yoga.
