The Bermondsey Square Hotel, Tower Bridge Road, London, UK
The class is run by two instructors with interesting backgrounds:
A lifelong martial artist, Jamie discovered yoga as the perfect vehicle for correcting imbalances within the body caused by years of Brazilian JiuJitsu training and competition. He quickly realised that the benefits of yoga practice went way beyond the physical and that regular practice brought with it a unique feeling of calmness that carried over into his daily life. Wanting to explore this ancient art further at its source, Jamie set off for India to complete his 200hr multi-style TTC. It was during this time that he discovered Yin yoga and became inspired by the work of Paul Grilley. Immediately upon returning to London he bought every Yin book he could find, then returned to India to complete a 50hr Yin TTC with Maheshwara Manfred Lehner and Shakti Simone Lehner, both of whom are certified teachers under Paul Grilley. After staying in India to teach for Lotus Yoga, Jamie returned to London to complete an additional Yin and Yang 50hr TTC.
Having taught at some of London's top studios, Jamie is now working hard to spread the Yin yoga gospel and make Yin accessible to everyone, regardless of age, experience or fitness level. Despite his love for Yin, Jamie understands the need to balance this with Yang practices and can also be found teaching Vinyasa flow plus half of the increasingly popular ‘Inversion Immersion’ class. Forever a student, Jamie continues to expand his knowledge and can regularly be found in his local Buddhist cafe with a yoga book and chai latte in hand!
