At the age of 19, Jamel began his journey in search of spiritual mindfulness. Throughout the 15 years of exposure and training in countless healing modalities, Jamel has grown as a seasoned massage therapist, yoga teacher, and overall teacher of personal liberation.
This has fueled the now 34-year-old Detroit native to share his passion for healing not only through his practice but also through his teachings. In 2016, Jamel opened the Trap Yoga and Massage Studio with the intention to build a space where people felt comfortable to come as they are; to embrace the good and the bad without dually identifying themselves with these feelings

Vinyasa ( translates to “flowing with breath”) is a dynamic style of Hatha yoga which joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice.
Our Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat in the body with creative sequences involving sun salutations, standing and seated postures, back bending, arm balancing, and a strong focus on the power of breath awareness. Flow yoga classes tend to be more vigorous and aerobic.
How long have you been practicing? 9 years.
