Work with me

Hi, I'm James.

I'm not your average web-designer.

A born mystic and philosopher,
I combine an abiding love of yoga and Indian spirituality with leading-edge digital expertise to offer a unique service tailored to help yoga teachers thrive online without sacrificing their soul.

I currently live and work at Mandala Yoga Ashram in West Wales, UK, indulging my love of yoga and meditation while co-ordinating and expanding the Ashram's online activities.

In addition to my ashram work I take on one freelance project at a time through Aum 108.  

In my spare time I read widely and walk in wild nature.

I've been practicing the arts of digital wizardry for around 4 years now, since shortly after emerging from a surprisingly long and wondrous period of deep nature-immersion in a mossy corner of the Celtic Rainforest.

You can get a glimpse into that mossy corner here.

The digital service I offer helps yoga teachers harness available technology to share their knowledge more effectively with students around the world.

The idea isn’t to convince anyone to choose online over in-person classes. It's to empower teachers who’ve already chosen to operate online to do so as ease-fully and successfully as possible.

To that end I design beautiful websites and learning environments on the awesome platform Kajabi, create high-quality content and advise on content creation, and implement leading-edge digital strategy to help teachers to reach, engage and delight more students.

 

More about my service

My Sankalpa

The vision, mission and guiding principles behind Aum 108

Vision

I'd like to see more people around the world able to easily access high-quality yoga teachings along with daily guidance and support for their practice – from the comfort of their own homes.

Mission

I aim to enable yoga teachers and studios to deliver valuable digital learning experiences that take online yoga teaching to the next level – for the benefit of students and teachers alike.

Guiding Principles

Teachings over technology

My aim is to help yoga teachers teach yoga online, not to try to turn them into tech-heads. Technology should be made to serve yoga, not get in the way.

Empowerment, not prescription

Digital strategy is not one-size-fits-all. Adaptable roadmaps empower individual teachers and studios to find the best solution to achieve their own individual impact and income goals.

Reality over fantasy

Kajabi is a great platform, the best of its kind, but it isn’t some sort of magical flying carpet. It has its weak points, as do we all, and takes time to learn how to use fully. There’s no point pretending otherwise.

By yogis, for yogis

Aum 108 isn’t for everyone, and that’s fine. In fact, it’s great! Working with fellow yogis is a joy and allows for more synergy and better tailored solutions.

Be human

Not trying to be perfect. Saying what we actually mean. Expressing vulnerability. Admitting mistakes. Even when it’s hard, it’s always better in the long run.
