As a yoga practitioner, lifelong athlete, and lover of health & fitness, Jamie was first drawn to Pilates in 2001 after taking a class through the University of Toronto. Years later, Jamie once again became interested in Pilates after it helped her regain core strength after the birth of her first child in 2015. Since that time, Pilates has helped to strengthen Jamie's body and increase her stamina and flexibility. Pilates has also helped alleviate Jamie's neck and back pain from a motor vehicle accident in 2012, and back pain from carrying her second child. Jamie is passionate about helping people realize the potential that Pilates has to heal and strengthen the body in a safe and enjoyable way. In addition to Pilates, Jamie loves traveling, sewing and spending time with her family.
