Jim started his yoga journey at the age of 39. In a short period he noticed the mental and emotional benefits of a regular practice. His passion for teaching grew from leading practices, under the guidance of Himalaya Yoga Valley, to multi-national troops while serving overseas with the UN. He enrolled in HYVC Yoga Teacher Training in Goa in 2013. Since then he has taught in a variety of settings including the Irish Defence Forces and the Slí Eile Farm Project where he is a voluntary teacher.
