Steve James travels internationally teaching somatic practices, meditation, and yoga. He also leads explorations in contemplative, mystic, and relational realms. Known for his intelligent, grounded approach and his dedication to first-hand research, Steve has extensive experience in elite athletic performance, contemplative and spiritual disciplines, the arts, extreme outdoor survival, and human behavior.
Steve’s background in somatic practices began with dedicated martial arts and physical training from the age of five. He was a member of the Scottish fencing team in his teens, and as an elite athlete he engaged in high-level competition and peak athletic performance strategies.
He went on to study with and graduate as a teacher under yoga master Godfrey Devereux, and continues to deepen his education in yoga, qigong, and physical performance.
In addition to private client work and international public workshops, Steve has released a DVD series of his movement approach called the Movement Koan Method®, a fusion of joint-nourishing movement and body-based mindfulness.
Steve’s current private clients range from pioneering entrepreneurs, CEOs, and multi-billion dollar fund managers to multiple Grammy-winning musical artists and Oscar-winning actors.
