BIOGRAPHY:

Yogini J’aime has been practicing and loving the living art of Yoga for the last twelve years. She has been studying several styles of Asana practice extensively in the US, Mexico, and in India — including Ashtanga, Hatha, and Vinyasa. J’aime’s qualifications as an instructor and guide include a total of 800-hours of teaching certifications in Hatha Vinyasa and Ashtanga formats in addition to countless hours of intensive workshop and individual personal training with revered Yogis and Yoginis from around the world; as well as a master’s degree in Psychology; and a religious degree certification in metaphysical ministries. Having been initiated into the lineage of Himalayan Yogis, her personal focus is on the eight-limbed practice of the Ashtanga as detailed in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. However, she has also wandered the paths of depth psychology, Qabalah, shamanism, esotericism, comparative religious studies, inter-spirituality, magic, martial arts, ritual, and mysticism.

 

J’aime has recently been awarded a Master’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in Consciousness, Spirituality, and Integrative Health, submitting a thesis and myriad essays focusing on Yoga Psychology and the application of the Ashtanga system as an adjunctive treatment for PTSD and complex trauma.

 

J’aime has also received a religious doctorate in Metaphysical Ministries, where her thesis and dissertation were on the art of energy balancing using the chakra system as a psychological framework for life transformation. During the process of this degree program, J’aime received her ministerial ordination from the university seminary. After progressing through a Reiki training course until Master level, as a method of researching the energy healing arts while writing her thesis, J’aime chose to write her own manual for Reiki practitioners including her own experience with shamanism, yoga, and psychology to form a unique and intuitive method of working with the physical and the subtle body systems in a healing modality.

Yogini J’aime is dedicated to bringing together these many different modalities to form a transformational process of self-realization, integrative health, and spiritual practice that provides a lifestyle framework for mind/body wellness.
