About James

James Traverse

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates a simple, clear and time-tested means of understanding your true nature. The mechanism of this experiential method is ‘The Way of Insight’ as the switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving. This approach flowered principally out of James’ studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon, Vivekananda and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his spiritual journey.
