Yoga found me while attending college in the 80’s and has been a part of my lifestyle ever since. I appreciate that yoga is accessible to all and shows love to every shape our body makes.
My intention is to share and empower students to be curious while honoring their breath and body in movement. As a perpetual student it is a privilege to learn from each of you, as we all pursue our path, understanding we can go as far as we can imagine.
When Jamie first tried yoga several years ago at a gym, she thought it wasn't a fit for her because she wanted to "burn more calories per hour." A handful of years later, she found a studio with a range of instructors and began to recognize the importance of the mind/body connection that yoga offers. She now welcomes the inward focus and meditative aspects of the practice, especially as a counterbalance to the stress and speed of her work in the corporate setting. Jamie received her RYT-200 certification from Yoga Bird Studio in Ft. Myers, FL, with an emphasis on inclusive, traditional yoga for real people. She loves to teach goat yoga, slow flow, gentle yoga and all-levels classes.
Before teaching yoga, Patti taught ESL for 27 years to foreign-born students ranging from child to adult in the public and private sectors, and she loved it! When a yoga teacher suggested that she take the RYT 200 hour yoga teacher training, she thought, MAYBE? Then, other instructors suggested it, and she decided YES! Patti is so glad she did, and forever grateful for the encouragement and learning that brought her to instructor level. “Yoga is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I am on a lifelong journey to learn more so that I can grow and share more of this gift called yoga. Whoever you are, yoga is for you if you want it."
Patti resides in Fort Myers with her husband John and their 4 legged pet/children Shyla and Sofia. She loves animals, nature and being outdoors.
We bought this property in 2019 with a vision. Dim Jandy is an icon in our lives and it was fitting that we would later name our ranch after him. You will find him smiling brightly to greet you every time you arrive. He reminds us not to take life too serious.
