Jamie Lugo

Born and raised in Northern California, Jamie graduated in 2006 with degrees in both dance and psychology from the University of California, and moved to NYC with intentions to pursue a career in dance. Instead, after her first yoga teacher training at Pure Yoga in 2010, Jamie began teaching immediately. She went on to study with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman, and after 4 years as a mentor at Yoga Shanti she is now a faculty member in their 200-hr teacher training program. Jamie is heavily influenced by the profound teachings of Pema Chödrön, and she considers Ani Pema to be one of her greatest teachers (although they have never met).
