About this pro

I focus on yoga for a sustainable lifestyle; from power movement or relaxation techniques you will increase joint stability, balance, range of motion and strength. I emphasize alignment and explain the purpose of each movement so that you leave each session with a greater understanding of your own anatomy. This communication style makes yoga accessible to those who are new to yoga as well as those who are looking to deepen their practice. I love helping others reach their wellness goals through yoga. It never gets old to see peoples' faces (those "ah-ha" moments) as I micro-adjust their posture and suddenly they feel different in their bodies! I'm after a sustainable, flexible, healthy, fit and focused life. It is always a pleasure working with individuals who feel the same way."

    I’m so thrilled to have found Jamie! I started 1-1 classes on zoom with Jamie since January. I was totally a beginner to yoga and Jamie made me fall in love with it. She’s always patient and professional. I experienced a lot of stiffness after WFH, Jamie’s classes have helped me a lot. My energy level and body stiffness have been improved a lot. Jamie also modified the workouts every time according to my needs and my energy level. I always feel very grateful and relaxed after practicing yoga with her. ☺️

    Jaime is an amazing yoga instructor! If you're looking for someone to help start your yoga practice or really expand and build upon your yoga foundation, Jamie is the teacher you've been looking for! She will push you when you are ready and she will help you rest when you need it. She knows all the tricks to help describe how your body should be feeling in a certain pose. Her yoga style is typically flow/vinyasa based, but she also leads great restorative classes. She is flexible, easy to communicate with, and a genuinely friendly person. During the pandemic she started teaching a 45 min restorative class that helps you center/ground and start off the week right. I highly recommend this class- especially if you are feeling stressed and tense. It always helps loosen the tension I carry in my neck and shoulders. She always answers questions and if something does feel right will change the direction of a yoga session to accommodate. I'm an intermediate yogi and I've done one on one and group classes with Jaime for over a year.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start with a short phone call. We talk about your interests and goals for health and wellness, we make sure logistics line up, and then we schedule our session together at a convenient time and place that fits into your life's schedule.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

My yoga training education comes from Yoga Tree in San Francisco. I've also enjoyed over a decade of practice from instructors across the US as well as a strong personal at home practice. For the past 5 years, I have taught primarily private sessions with clients ranging from 20 to 80-yrs-old, some healthy and others working through major health challenges including obesity, cancer, and healing from broken bones/surgery.

My personal training education comes from NASM and ISSA while my experience training has come from Fast Pace Personal Training (fastpacept.com). My clients have ranged from 7 to 75-yrs-old. My nutrition experience is also from ISSA. 

Every year I further my education with a new certificate in order to better serve my diverse community.
