Lead Trainer: JAIMIE CLARK 500-hr E-RYT passion for physical fitness and well-being began at an early age when she fell in love with the study of movement in her dance classes she took as a kid. After high school she began taking Pilates and Yoga to stay active in the same style of body mechanics that she missed from her dance classes. During this time she worked in the skin care and beauty industry as an Esthetician, but it was the joy she experienced through her yoga practice that compelled her to leave the beauty industry to pursue a career in teaching.

After completing 200hr trainings through both Yogaworks and Corepower, she began teaching in 2011. She later gained an additional 300hr certification through Yogaworks, as well as a Pilates certification through Lisa Schlaeger. She then ventured into Barre and TRX.

With her vast array of experience and knowledge, her style of teaching reflects an eclectic influence of the different methodologies she has studied, while offering a uniquely creative approach to her classes as she customizes them to her student's individual needs and levels- always with an added touch of humor.

Yin Yoga is a unique combination of Indian Yoga, Taoist practices, and Mindfulness Meditation. The body gradually releases its habitual holding as the poses are held passively for several minutes at a time, affecting the nervous system, the body’s connective tissues, and its energetic pathways, like a form of self-acupressure. Concentration, mindfulness, and receptivity are cultivated in the poses, making Yin Yoga a wonderful introduction to meditation.

In Level 1 “Guiding the Practice of Yin Yoga: Foundations,” you will learn about the anatomy of the body’s soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia), the energetic system (chi, prana, meridians), how to incorporate meditation, and of course, the major poses of Yin Yoga. We will cover how poses can be adapted for less flexible bodies or injuries, and how to practice safely without over-stretching. Therapeutic applications of Yin Yoga will be explored, including how to design classes that address ailments and energy imbalances through the meridians.
