Carleton James


CJ gravitates towards connection. Connection with movement, to people, to his emotions of mind, body & spirit. He found yoga after playing sports growing up and throughout college. CJ received his first 200 hour certification in Hatha Yoga (Becca Hewes, OKC – Yoga Life) in 2013. Wanting to learn more about the asana side of the practice, CJ found Patrick Beach, Carling Harps, & Awakening Yoga Academy (2nd 200 hour). He has trained with them for the past 8 years and has been a full-time yoga teacher for the past 10 years. CJ has a Masters in Exercise Science and has taught 1000+ hours of public classes and multiple workshops, retreats, and private sessions. He has filmed for multiple online platforms such as Commune Online and Just Move. His class styles vary and he has a diverse offering of vinyasa, hatha, yin, and mellow flows. CJ’s classes are a wonderful balance of structure & freedom, meeting you in your moment of effort & ease. He hopes to leave you with good vibes and a loving energy. ❤️
