KNOFF YOGA WORKSHOP with James Bryan // 27th-28th MAY 2017




Knoff Yoga Weekend Workshops at AYF with James Bryan


Practitioners of all levels and traditions are invited to attend this rare opportunity to study with one of the worlds’ foremost teachers of yoga.

These master classes will use the Discovery and Foundation syllabus, with an emphasis on the Knoff Yoga fundamental Principles of Practice, which are universal in application and profound in their effect.

James’s teaching emphasis is on showing students how to look, listen and feel by honouring their ‘inner wisdom’.

His teaching represents a bridge between Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga; intelligent, anatomical alignment combined with linking internal energetic principles. 

James Bryan was born in the City of Angels (USA) and migrated to NZ in 1969. Sitting on his back-side in a life crushing office job led to running marathons in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

The stretching in long-distance training piqued an interest in yoga. 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.


All students will receive extensive notes:

  • Knoff Yoga Overview

  • 5 Pillars of Practice

  • 24 Principles of Practice

  • Principles of Sequencing

  • Asana & Pranayama Syllabus (Discovery & Foundation)
