J’aime Blakely, a Yoga Psychologist, has been practicing and studying Classical Yoga Darshana for the last 14 years. J’aime has received her undergraduate degree in Music, and a master’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in Consciousness, Spirituality, and Integrative Health focusing on Yoga Psychology and the application of Ashtanga Yoga, detailed by Sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, as an adjunct treatment for PTSD and complex trauma. J’aime has also received a doctorate from a religious institution in Metaphysical Sciences, where her thesis and dissertation were on the subtle body systems of Hatha and Tantra Yoga as a psychological framework for life transformation.
J’aime’s present project has been co-founding the Yoga and Mindfulness School at the incredibly beautiful La Buena Vibra compound in Tepoztlán, Morelos, Mexico. Here, she has been developing a traditional Yoga and meditation program for serious students of Classic and Ashtanga Yoga including daily classes, retreats, teacher training programs, continuing education for Yoga teachers, and international level Yoga festivals and events.
