Jamie has been teaching yoga since 2009. As a dancer she has always been a student of her body but has had a nagging interest in the relationship between body and mind for as long as she can remember. In 2006, she graduated with a major in Dance and a minor in Psychology from UC Irvine, California. She has studied with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee since 2012 and still calls the pair her mentors, teachers, friends and yoga parents.
Jamie is heavily influenced by the teachings and research of Pema Chödrön, Caroline Myss and Anodea Judith. She is interested in change, evolution, growth, self responsibility and navigating spirituality in a practical way.
Jamie is also a certified life coach. She has trained and studied with Co-Active Training Institute, Shirzhad Chamine, creator and author of “Positive Intelligence” and The Strozzi Institute – Center for Embodied Leadership. She is the creator of “Digest and Embody” a coaching course that looks through the lens of the chakra system to radically change our lives for the better. She also is the creator of “Teaching On Purpose” a coaching program for yoga teachers who are looking to teach from their truest and most authentic self.
Her classes are deep, introspective and challenging for both the body and mind – all set to a powerful playlist.
