Jaimie has a doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). She's also a Yoga Alliance Certified Continuing education provider, an educator for 200 level teacher training (E-RYT), and certified International Association of Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT).
I started yoga for fitness and then started to notice my chronic back pain, tight hip flexors, along with my mental and emotional states began improve. For me, Yoga is therapy because it helps direct my body and mind into a positive and healing state despite the chaos I may feel around me. I find my sitting breathing practice every morning, along with modifying poses for my body and watching my breathing during my asana practice, has allowed yoga to be my therapy.
Since I practice physical therapy, I attract students who have a history of injuries, surgeries, or age related changes and who are interested in learning how to do yoga safely in their unique body. My students are interested in learning how their muscles and joints work together and what they can do to work with or prevent injuries.
Listen as Jaimie talks about weaving her yoga and physical therapy practices together. She also touches on what it takes to be a yoga teacher and to run her own business. Learn more about what Yoga Is Therapy has to offer our Tucson community in the form of classes and upcoming workshops.
