For Jamie, yoga is her primary mode of self-expression.
It is an expression of self-love, self-care and cultivating mindfulness. Jamie is committed to teaching accessible, empowering and intentional classes for all students and all bodies at every stage and level of practice. She firmly believes yoga is a path available to everyone and can promote physical ease and mental and emotional well-being and the power of the yoga “kula,” or community, to spread radical love and empathy. Jamie first began yoga eight years ago, fell in love with the practice, and received her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2012 at Neighborhood Yoga nestled in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. Since then, yoga has followed Jamie to Mexico, to Peace Corps service in Ethiopia, to Oregon and to D.C., always healing, supporting and connecting her with others.
Favorite Style of Yoga
Jamie’s style is influenced by Anusara, Yin, Tantric and Ashtanga yoga, but mostly by the soulful, brave teachers and practitioners she has encountered.
Jamie is inspired by nature, music, travel, poetry, stories, dance and the beautiful humans in her life. She enjoys teaching powerful flows invoking breathwork and alignment as well as Yin and restorative classes.
“You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness. Be a warrior for love.” -Cheryl Strayed
Thoughts from Jamie
Jamie loves travelling the world, being in the woods, reading books, and her favorite manifestation of love is cooking and drinking and listening to music with people she loves.
