Instructor Insights: Dr. Jim Weber
Originally from New York City, Dr. Jim Weber has done it all—yoga instructor, surgeon, author, you name it. While Jim’s various practices seem different in nature, the needle that threads them all together is Jim’s passion for teaching. “I love to teach and have done so my entire professional life,” he says. “Getting students to do a better job taking care of themselves has always been my goal, whether I’m teaching med students … or yoga students.” After 30 years as a surgeon, Jim closed his practice in 2008 and transitioned into teaching yoga. Many of his students made the move to virtual classes with him last year. “We never know for sure where Jim is going to take us, but we know it is going to leave us happier and healthier,” WAC member Doug Jewett says. “Having Jim as our yoga master is a real blessing for all of us.” In his free time, Jim walks five miles daily, listens to classical music, and is an avid writer who has authored four books. “I love the WAC,” he says.
