James discovered yoga as a way to stay grounded while spending several years traveling for work. As places and faces around him changed very frequently, the mat remained a constant. Over time, the effects of meditation, mind-body connection and physical awareness has led him deeper into the practice of getting to know oneself. Putting down roots in Juneau in 2013 also meant finding Ashtanga yoga for the first time through led Primary Series classes and eventually, a Mysore practice. Completing his RYT-200 training at The Yoga Path in 2015 has given him a teaching foundation based in personal practice development and he most enjoys connecting with students from a place of having been there himself.
James Hoagland is currently not instructing any classes.
