Accessible Yoga, Heart-Centered Coaching & Plant Medicine Integration
Online & In-Person.


Ancient Medicine for the Modern Condition.

Currently, many of us are feeling disheartened by the troubles of the world, searching for purpose and meaning in our lives, and dealing with increasing levels of stress, anxiety, depression and addiction.

Thankfully, you’re not alone, and there is help available.

Ancestral wisdom has provided us with time-tested tools that allow us to reclaim our natural state of mental and physical health, creativity, intimacy and spiritual connection.

Whether you are currently experiencing a crisis, feeling stuck in certain areas of your life, or simply interested in developing a daily self-care routine to feel better and improve your energy, I can offer you the guidance and support you need to not just survive in these troubled times, but to grow and thrive.

Here’s how I can help.

I’m here to offer you support on your path of healing and wellness, helping you to connect to your inner wisdom, let go of limiting beliefs and behaviours, and empower you with tools for self-care, resiliency and deep connection.

I teach a therapeutic, breath-centred approach to yoga in the tradition of Krishnamacharya & Desikachar and provide compassionate, heart-centred support and guidance for whatever comes up.

I work with people 1-to-1 in Montréal and online via phone or Zoom.

Brian James is a yoga teacher, musician and transformational coach. He’s been exploring the medicine paths of yoga, music, psychology and shamanism for over twenty years.

His approach is rooted in the belief that yoga is not about striving toward a physical or spiritual ideal, but rather, it’s a deeply personal process of embodied awakening to one’s own truth and potential — simply, a return to our natural state of ease and flow.

Brian’s mission is to serve as a helpful friend and guide to others who are walking their medicine path, sharing what he’s learned on his own healing journey and offering compassionate, non-judgmental support and wise counsel when needed.

“Yoga, plant medicine and counselling have been integral to my own healing journey, and have helped me to recover my health, vitality, and restore a sense of purpose and meaning in my life.”

— Brian James

Brian has travelled all over the world to study with master teachers in yoga, music and shamanism.
