Jamie Forbes began practicing yoga close to six years as a form of exercise and to find a more natural way to help decrease anxiety and stress. She would never have thought that Yoga was going to be a way of life for her. Yoga has not only benefited her physically but also mentally and spiritually. She has found her balance in life through yoga and meditation. With everything she goes through in life, her mat is where she goes to allow herself to embrace it. Her favorite forms of Yoga are Ashtanga and Vinyasa. Yoga has combined the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of her life together so beautifully. She feels that she has a purpose in life, which is to teach Yoga to the people in the community.
Jamie is originally from Newport News, Va and now resides in High Point, NC with her beautiful children. She is a 200hr RYT, which she obtained her certification at MindBodyFitness Yoga in Greensboro, NC. The classes she enjoys teaching are Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Deep Stretch and Flow and Power Yoga. Before her journey to become a yoga teacher, Jamie had been in the healthcare profession since 2002. She feels now instead of taking care of patients in a hospital, that her purpose is to teach Yoga and give back to the community.
“In the beginning, it is always dark. The mind thinks (and leads us to believe) that this darkness is forever. But the body can feel the light, and as soon as it’s allowed, will always grow towards it. That is nature. That is yoga.” -Amy Jirsa, Quiet Earth Yoga
