Having athletic talents since childhood, Jamey grew up to be a fitness instructor and aerobics teacher. Practicing yoga was initially forced upon her because of work, but the inner peace that followed unexpectedly inspired her to dig in more. Exploring inward, she began diving into the majestic and intricate world of yoga.
2009 was the year of rebirth and a new beginning when she finished an Anusara-based teacher training led by Patrick Creelman. As she learned to appreciate her own being, her heart softly opened up for the very first time. She then realized that she must love and embrace herself in order to be able to do the same to others.
Her major inspirations for both practice and teaching have been Heidi Chen and Richard Freeman. With Heidi, she was exposed to the steady energy of Ashtanga yoga, embarking on an exploration of the subtlety of alignment, and the power that lies in the softness of breathing. Later with Richard Freeman, she learned about how observing from both inside and outside the form reveals the whole picture, while a little humor is added into the diligent practice. It is then that one can feel the ease and steadiness throughout every breath.
Jamey’s practice also incorporated the spiral movements of GYROKINESIS, which is a set of therapeutic movements for spine and nearby joints. It helps to improve one’s body awareness by building up core strengths of the body’s central axis.
Jamey was once lost in her pursuit of challenging asanas. She forgot about the importance of the fundamentals, and lost the roots of her practice. It was then she began to learn to be honest as she practice, rediscovering who she was, and experiencing how yoga reflects the real self like a mirror. As she began to practice with no expectation for change, change, eventually, happened on its own.
However you first stepped onto your mat, the journey of yoga has begun. Jamey is here to pass down the legacy and give guidance on your way.
