I share to help you meet what is amazing about YOU.
“I share yoga because it is my way to share the human quality of connection. For me, yoga is alive."
Jamie heartily believes life's better when we take ourselves less seriously and that our bodies are here to love and be loved! Using yoga, Jamie recovered from an eating disorder in her teens and went on to compete in the 2006 Olympics. Jamie is known for her intelligent, inspiring, and tell-it-like-it-is teaching style, and for weaving together profound personal experiences with her psychology background to deliver deeply moving insights.
Jamie is a US Olympian, Cornell University graduate, E-RYT 500 and Owner / Director of The Grinning Yogi. Jamie regularly writes and travels sharing her stories through speaking engagements and yoga workshops.
I own and direct The Grinning Yogi in Seattle, WA and Portland, OR
The Grinning Yogi's studios are about way more than bottoms or bottom lines...
TGY's mission is to provide consistently accessible, affordable-- AMAZING vinyasa flow classes to every friend who walks through our door. We believe that taking care of oneself and finding a smile should never be seen as a luxury.
Is a daily practice.
I am so inspired by my teachers and friends and 'failures'. Huge gratitude to all those that broke my heart (and my practice) open.
