OM meet… Tim Booth

Singer-songwriter Tim Booth of James explains how yoga, meditation and dance practices help him survive extraordinary times.

Early on in our interview, Tim Booth, best known as the singer in English band James, tells me: “I got into yoga in 1977 or 78, when I was 17. This was when yoga was new to the UK. I started going to this lovely class in Manchester. Everyone thought I was mad to be doing yoga, but I really got into it. I was going out with the vicar’s daughter at the time and I took her to one of the classes. A month later, her father wrote this piece in the parish magazine about how yoga was the devil’s work, invading the country, and that we Christians had to make a stand against it.”

Tim Booth is not the kind of rock and roll animal who takes up yoga to try and mend the damage done to his body after years of excess. As the anecdote proves, he’s always gone his own way.

He’s best known as the singer in the band James, who have sold over 25 million albums worldwide. But his life as a teacher of dynamic movement dance practice 5Rhythms and other modalities is an essential part of who he is.
