Teacher: Jamie Martin

Jamie's yoga journey began a decade ago in the heart of South Carolina. After college and early in her career she became aware of a subtle but consistent feeling of separateness and felt a burgeoning curiosity about the mind/body/soul connections. Jamie selected a nearby yoga studio randomly and without realization that her life was about to change course. With yoga, she was able to face leukemia and all of its associated treatment regimens and side effects with calmness, strength and fortitude.

Jamie moved to San Diego in June 2013 for a little more sunshine and to take a leap of faith. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in December 2013 and is excited, honored and humbled to have the opportunity to teach yoga. Her goal as a teacher is to weave challenging, empowering, playful, and innovative asanas with a knowledge in the flowing wisdom and subtleties of yoga philosophy. She wants to inspire students to look inside, find their inner beauty and strength, and live their life from that place of loving-kindness, compassion and joy.

Aside from yoga, Jamie is passionate about her friendships, University of South Carolina Gamecock football, eating cupcakes, and laughing loudly. She truly believes that life should not be taken too seriously.
