James Reeves

is one of Europe’s leading yoga nidra experts. He specialises in iRest (‘Integrative Restoration) Yoga Nidra having studied extensively with the protocol’s founder, Richard C. Miller, PhD. James was responsible for bringing iRest Yoga Nidra teacher training to Europe in 2014 and is the Integrative Restoration Institute’s Director of Europe. James has been a practising yoga teacher since 2005 after completing his first teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Centre in Kerala, India. He qualified as a Structural Yoga Therapist after training with Mukunda Stiles in 2006 and has since continued to study with countless leading teachers of hatha yoga, yoga nidra and meditation from all over the world.

As well as running his own regular yoga classes, workshops and retreats combining hatha yoga, yoga nidra, philosophy and meditation, James works one-one with clients who are recovering from birth trauma, PTSD, sexual abuse and depression, for example, as well as injury and other physical ailments, and even pre award ceremony nerves at the Oscars for one of his more high-profile clients. He teaches yoga nidra at triyoga London and regularly guest-teaches elsewhere within yoga studios and therapeutic and corporate settings across Europe. James is also a regular teacher on Ekhart Yoga Online. Whether running a workshop, delivering a programme of video classes or teaching privately, James is always focused on helping us to live the essence of our true nature: welcoming, open, spacious and free from judgment and conditioning.

“James’ heartfelt gentleness and masterful wisdom shine through in his teachings. His expertise lies in his ability to light the path for others to find their own way.”
– Richard Miller, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Author, Researcher and Yogic Scholar

“James took me on a journey where I was able to uncover parts of myself I hadn’t even been aware of and the change in my thought patterns and behaviour and the way I see myself since returning home has been huge.”
– Natalie Edwards, Coach & Mentor
