03James 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.
