JAMIE GARRISON E-RYT 200, RYT 500IP, Reiki Master, iRest Level 1, Founder & Owner
“Yoga has always been a part of my life. I recall as a child, feeling deeply connected to nature, spirituality and energy. As an adult it has become a way of life to maintain that union. On a quest for meaning and purpose I began yoga and meditation as a teenager. Over time my interests have evolved to include aromatherapy, herbalism, Ayurveda, Thai Massage and energy through Reiki & crystals. I considers myself to be a humble student of life and it is my dharma to share these interests with others so they too can attain balance and purpose in life.
In 2010, while working in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan, I completed my 200-hr yoga teacher training. Deeply drawn to my personal practice I found my true calling as a yoga guide. It was during this time I began to explore Reiki and have since received a Master Level Attunement. In November 2017 I was ready to pursue my 500hr RYT, expected graduation June 2020. As my interests as a practitioner evolve, I have discovered the next step on my personal journey. In the fall of 2020, I will begin a program in Naturopathic Medicine.
I teach from experience, my personal practice, and from my heart. A part of my message to students it to be their own guru. My goal as a guide is to help my students honor their own personal truth, enabling them to live consciously, in touch with their hearts, and finding a practice that suits them.
I am grateful for this opportunity to share yoga and to empower my students to be their own best teacher. I am even more thankful for yoga, which has been invaluable both physically and mentally throughout my life including the beautiful journey of pregnancy, labor, and as a mother to 2 incredible boys. I have immense gratitude for those who believe in my vision and Yoga Shala’s mission, as a venue to share the light and healing benefits of yoga.”
