Jamie Mathiasen first met yoga in 1997 during one of a thousand conversations about 'the meaning of life' and a good friend suggested she go to a yoga class. Skeptical that the answers to life could be found while balancing on her head, she went to her first class and like many students, realized yoga was much more than exercise. She fell in love with the space that her yoga practice created for her to feel her body and find stillness in her otherwise hectic life.
Jamie's passion and focus shifted to Therapeutic Yoga where she has earned a 1000 hour Internationally recognized Yoga Therapy Certification (IAYT). She has completed Level I & II of Rhythmic Movement Therapy (RMTi) a movement based, primitive (infant or neo-natal) reflex integration programme that uses developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self-awareness to rebuild the foundations necessary to help overcome learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural challenges. She has recently began studying Trauma-Sensitive Yoga with David Emerson. Jamie was the co-creator of the 200 hour Hatha Method Teacher Training at Calgary's leading studio, Breathe Hot Yoga.
