Since 2002, James has taught yoga and meditation to prisoners at San Quentin Prison in California and many other U.S. correctional facilities. He is trained in a variety of traditional yoga and meditation disciplines, as well as in providing yoga practices for addiction recovery and the dissociative effects of trauma.

He has several years of experience as a facilitator of victim/offender, violence prevention and emotional literacy classes for prisoners. In 2008 and 2009 he was awarded U.S. State Department Grants to advise and train governmental and non-governmental staff involved in prisoner and ex-gang member rehabilitation programs in Central America. He has served as an advisor to the National Institute of Health sponsored Chicago Urban Mindfulness Program and is on the faculty for Loyola Marymount University's (Los Angeles) Yoga and Mindfulness for Social Change Certification Program.
