Jamie is a Naples native. Growing up in the sunshine state, she spent most of her childhood playing sports and being outside. Jamie was introduced to Pilates at an early age by her sister, who is also a Pilates teacher, and loved it instantly. In 2008, she went to Los Angeles, where she could participate in a work-trade program at Mind 2 Body Pilates and GYRPTONIC studio.
Planning on staying for 3 months, she ending up staying for almost 3 years. Her love of the world of movement grew and not only did she get her Mat certification, but she continued her education and completed the comprehensive Pilates certification program, as well as becoming a certified GYROTONIC and Gryokinesis teacher.
Jamie has since participated in several specialized workshops furthering her knowledge of the body and how to apply that knowledge toward helping real people move, feel, and function better.
“Working in a mindful way to connect to and strengthen one’s body is one of the most empowering and joyful experiences available to us” – Jamie
