Yoga asana is the science and art of triggering the nervous system into a state of relaxation and wholeness.

The Ashtanga Primary Series is called Yoga Chikitsa, meaning yoga therapy because of the cleansing and toning effect it has on both body and mind.

  • The Style:
    Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Background:
    The Sanskrit word Vinyasa means 'breath-synchronized movement', the popularity and spread of Vinyasa Yoga came from two (2) main influencial Guru`s of our past; Tirumalai Krishnamacharya and K. Pattabhi Jois.
    Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (November 18, 1888 - February 28, 1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar. Often referred to as "The Father of Modern Yoga," Krishnamacharya is widely regarded as one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century and is credited with the revival of hatha yoga. Pattabhi Jois began his yoga studies in 1927 at the age of 12 with Krishnamacharya, and by 1948 had established the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute for teaching the specific yoga practice known as Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga Yoga is named after the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. "Power yoga" and "vinyasa yoga" are generic terms that may refer to any type of vigorous yoga exercise derived from Ashtanga yoga.

    Born a Leo July 26, 1972, currently living in Montreal, Quebec

    Bachelors degree in Kinesiology from McMaster University, a Reiki Master with Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition.

    Jamie grew up in Brantford Ontario Canada, where as a child he began his visionary artistic endeavours by exploring life, rhythm and tempo through various sports of swimming, cycling, running, triathlon and ironman.

    Over the years his body became the vehicle to explore the principles of yoga, sacred geometry, science and metaphysics; eventually gaining a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology from McMaster University. The hidden world of occult knowledge, esoteric philosophy and the mysterious parables of life are of profound personal interest and are the gateway to his 'self' exploration.

    Currently his yoga teaching draws wisdom from both the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems of asana, while his artistic expression tries to convey the process of change and transformation towards the soul.
