About the Facilitator(s):
Jaime Wood

View Profile
Jaime Wood
Studio Founder

With a background in dance (specifically ballet, lyrical and jazz), Jaime ventured to the pacific coast of Costa Rica to complete her initial 200-hr YA Yoga Teacher Certification at Nosara Yoga Insitute under Don and Amba Stapleton. Upon returning, she taught at local venues and for other Kingston Yoga Studios and within a few years (and more studying & practicing) opened Samatva Yoga West End.

Jaime draws on her experience to teach light, uplifting classes that reflect the challenge of everyday life without losing sight of yoga’s ancient + rich tradition. True to her roots, she teaches dynamic Vinyasa using an ever-changing sequence of Asana (aligning breath and movement) and the interdisciplinary approach, which allows her to respond to the energy in the room. She has trained with many great teachers, each of whom has contributed to her unique teaching style. Being a mom, step mom, partner + owner of Samatva Yoga Kingston (for the past 11 years) she loves to share the practical application of yoga’s benefits to everyday living - and her classes are designed for all levels. Her love of yoga is evident in her teaching style and her classes will leave you feeling inspired and open to possibility.

“I am hugely passionate about the transformational benefits of yoga and meditation and the power they have to help us see what we truly are; works in progress. I teach yoga from the heart, with the sole aim of encouraging others to love themselves and the world a little bit more each day. My classes are for everyone, designed to build strength and encourage stillness of mind and an open heart through mindful breath led movement. Sequences are nourishing, strong, dynamic and fun and intended to energize and inspire individuals to embrace their vast potential on and off the mat. I'm a great lover of restorative, yin + yoga nidra meditation and like to incorporate this into most classes. In a culture obsessed with 'doing', these supported postures serve as the perfect antidote and offer untold benefits to the entire being.”

Continuing education includes (but not limited to) being inspired in workshops and certifications with Baron Baptiste, Todd Norian and Ann Greene, Paul Grilley, Seane Corn, David Life, Sharron Gannon, Michael Stone, Yogi Vishvketu, Nischala Joy Devi, Susi Hately Aldous, Maria Garre, Natasha Rizopoulos, Michael Lee, Sri Dharma Mittra, and Don and Amba Stapleton.
