Jamie Weiss

Originally from Brooklyn, Jamie started practicing Bikram yoga in a stinky little studio in Times Square in 2001. She was drawn to the practice almost instantly. After a lifetime in the performing Arts and years of resisting the call to become a yoga teacher, it was during a hot yoga class she heard a teacher say, “You lose so many things with age and yoga gives you something to move towards. You can be 75 years old and have a stronger practice than the person standing next to you who is half your age.” It was in that very moment she knew her path was yoga. A lifetime seeker of personal growth and consciousness, yoga gave her the ability to dive head first into her “Self” and develop an intimate life changing relationship from within. She proceeded to complete her 200 and 300-hour teacher trainings becoming a very grateful 500-hour certified teacher. Currently an MSW candidate in the field of Forensic Social Work, Jamie teaches yoga part-time around Los Angeles with the hope of bringing mindfulness and yoga deeper into the social justice system. She believes that yoga can change the way we feel about ourselves and that through self-love we may one day just change the world.
