We feel privileged to announce that James Bryan, co-founder of Knoff Yoga is coming to Canberra Yoga Space for a full weekend immersion workshop this July 2017.
Knoff Yoga is one of Australia’s leading yoga schools, and provides the highest quality training available in the world. With a combined 80 years of experience between Nicky Knoff and James Bryan, having both trained and certified in BOTH the Iyengar Yoga tradition and the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition (1st to 4th series) – this is the first training school internationally to thoroughly combine the benefits of both methods to bring about the full potential in both the practitioner and yoga teacher.
Introducing rigorous technique whilst potent in its fundamental emphasis for the individual to come home to one’s self and taking ownership over one’s own well-being and quality of life — Knoff Yoga continues to provide truly self-empowering and transformative experiences.

About James Bryan
James Bryan was born in Los Angeles (USA) and migrated to NZ in 1969. After studying with B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune, India (1986) and gaining certification, James studied with K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India (1989) and learned the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Out of these experiences and in partnership with Nicky Knoff, the Knoff Yoga System was birthed into existence.
Before yoga, sitting on his back-side in a life crushing office job, led to running marathons in late 70’s and early 80’s. The stretching in long-distance running piqued an interest in yoga.
Weekend Workshop Schedule
Practitioners of all levels and traditions are invited to attend these fun and educational master classes with a modern Western teacher who bridges correct anatomical alignment (injury free) with the energetic principles of Bandha, Drishti, Ujjayi Pranayama and Vinyasa.
These master classes will use the Knoff Foundation Asana syllabus with an emphasis on the Knoff Yoga Principles of Practice, which are universal in application and profound in effect.

This approach is best appreciated from an overview, i.e. instead of just looking at the individual trees, step back mentally and appreciate the view of the whole forest.
