I am Benny James. My life priority is to experience divine love in all forms. I believe that if you are not loving, then you are not living. In a world of so much suffering, why would I choose to be the cause of even more suffering? I arrived on this Earth as a healer and I believe the best way to facilitate healing is through an attitude of love. A life of service by being a divine conduit for the highest vibrations of love.
I am a lover of all things movement. For me, when I move my body, my spirit is free to travel. This year is my 20th year anniversary as a dancer, and my ten year anniversary dancing professionally. I have found more of a sacred practice with dance lately, and it has become an expression of my highest self. I am also one of 200 English speaking teachers in the world with an advanced diploma in hatha yoga studies from India.
My very classical training in yoga and dance has allowed me to step into a very intuitive form of teaching others about self-discovery through movement. I have been teaching movement for ten years now, and I have found that a smile is never more authentic than when someone is learning how to isolate their hips or shaking their body like they are shaking off their skin.
Right now, I see a gap in the way that yoga and dance are offered to the community. For me, there is a lack of space to give students the time and depth that I know they deserve. So, I am working on figuring out what it is that is creating that gap, and how I can better facilitate a lessening of that gap to be better able to give students the authenticity that I want to truly be giving them.
I feel like my life has truly just begun, and now I am finally at a point in my life where I have the tools necessary to be beyond successful. Actually, I already am beyond successful, now I am simply living an empowered life that I love. It has been 25 years in the making, and I am thankful for every teacher that has taught me wholeness and love by sharing their light with me. I am grateful for it all. Let's celebrate!
