As a songwriter, Jamie’s musical journey began as a small child singing and writing songs with her two older brothers. In her early teens she was introduced to many sacred texts, including the Bhagavad Gita. This new found, old felt passion, sparked a fire in her heart and left her with a deep knowing that Yoga was the next step on her path. While the thought of Yoga seems light and lofty, Jamie soon found that dedication to the practice had cracked her wide open! So she dove into the wounds, peeled back the layers and shortly after took her first Yoga teacher training.

David found yoga in 1994 while receiving chair massages at Whole Foods. He started practicing daily and attended classes at Unity Church and the Ananda center. David joined friends taking The Artist’s Way workshop and discovered yoga as his Art. He began teaching at Unity in 1996 and other places soon after. He received his 500hr Yoga Teaching Cert in 2005 through Namaste’ Int'l and in 2006 a friend invited him to attend a Vedic Thai workshop with Mukti Michael Buck. David found a purpose, knowing immediately that he wished to share this graceful, ancient practice.

Upon overcoming a close to three-year bout with chronic fatigue syndrome, an issue entirely too common in this day and age, I was inspired to become a yoga instructor to share my knowledge and love of yoga with others. I started teaching upon graduation and am highly addicted to my daily yoga practice. Also, I attend workshops regularly to keep my practice current. My passion is to help others satisfy their individual health and wellness goals while providing them with the tools to continue practicing for the rest of their lives.
