Hailing from Ottawa, Jaimée works as an experienced yoga teacher, independent dance artist & writer in Toronto. When she’s not moving her body, she loves to travel & cook, paint & sing. One day she hopes to ride a bike with no hands, and successfully grow a vegetable garden.
Having trained professionally as a dancer and having studied a great deal of anatomy, she eagerly explores the mind, body, spirit connection, and self-awakening that yoga offers. Forever a student, she continues to study and integrate various movement techniques into her yoga classes. Jaimée aspires to offer her students the tools to cultivate an integrated practice, to develop their ability to move with respect and integrity for their structure, and to help them find a peaceful physicality as well as love and appreciation for their individual self. She leads a strong and fluid Vinyasa style class that integrates a variety of movement principles, creative sequences and lots of variations throughout. Jaimée values a fun and freeing practice, filled with breath and movement. She encourages her students to cultivate peace and balance, and discover their individual means of creative expression through self-inquiry.
Her teaching and her practice are inspired by a variety of individuals including Don & Amba Stapleton, Schuyler Grant, Sarah Tacy, J-P Tamblyn-Sabo, Rod Stryker, Frey Faust, Kenny Pearl and Samantha Booker. She has met wonderful people through yoga and dance, and credits these positive and inspiring individuals to have nurtured her to be kinder to herself. Jaimée is a Lululemon Ambassador and currently teaches throughout the city of Toronto. She also occasionally contributes to The Dance Current magazine as a news writer.
