Instructor Spotlight Round Two!
We are so excited to announce another beautiful individual, Jamie Breese, as our second instructor spotlight for this week! Jamie is a recent Texas transplant from Illinois and is a 200 RYT graduate with a strong practice on and off the mat. Keep your eyes peeled for Jamie on Inspire Yoga Colleyville’s upcoming schedule this October and get a sense of why we love Jamie so much through our conversation.
Everyone has a really unique journey to finding the mat. Mind telling us a little bit about your yoga origin story?
I started yoga in 2010 when a friend asked me to go with her to a class. I remember looking around the room trying to find the speaker that was playing the loud breathing noises I was hearing (haha). As I kept moving through the class I found by the end laying there in savasana I felt my mind quieting down for the first time in my life. I honestly didn’t even know it was possible to stop the constant chaos loop that my mind was playing. I was instantly hooked.
That first experience of feeling the mind quiet down is so profound. What was your motivating force in your decision to become a yoga instructor?
I wanted a completely different profession that allowed me to do something I truly loved and believed in. Yoga to me is a place that allows me to connect within and with others and I wanted to be able to share this life changing experience yoga provides with others.
Speaking of connecting with others, what are some of your favorite ways of seeking connection on your day-today?
I really enjoy FaceTiming with my daughters (off to college!), going on walks with my husband, and snuggling with my dogs.
When you aren’t practicing or cuddling with your dogs (insert heart eyes here), what else takes up your time?
Until recently it was my daughters, but they have both gone away to college. I also work contract for a medical device company where I teach and place a Wearable Defibrillator on patients at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest. And when I’m not doing that I am at home enjoying time with my husband and two dogs.
They say everyone has a book inside of them. What would your book be about?
Surviving and overcoming life’s challenges while learning to truly let go and find balance (it’s a work in process).
