TEACHES: Basics & Power
Born and raised in Toledo, Jaimee has always had a passion for helping others reach their full potential. Her first introduction to yoga was through Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown DVD in 2012. Wanting more of a challenge, she found a local studio, signed up for a few classes, and gradually fell in love with the practice and principles of yoga.
In 2017, Jaimee felt it was placed on her heart to become an instructor and was certified with her RYT 200 in July through Kimi Rae Chapman's teacher training. Her hope is to bring yoga to a community that is under-served, and show everyone that yoga is meant for everybody ,no matter their shape, size or physical ability. Everyone can reap the benefits of practicing yoga.
I’ve only been to California once, for my 16th birthday with my Dad. I fell in love with the city of Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The rush of the city life and the beauty of the beach captured my heart and soul. I loved seeing so many different races and cultures of people and eating various dishes from different countries—I knew I was going to live in the place where dreams came true. Although I haven’t fulfilled that dream yet, I do believe it will come to pass one day.
