Jaymie Leigh is a speech language pathologist and a yoga instructor. She is certified to teach yoga, yoga for kids, and barre.
She says, “The very first time I took a yoga class I remember driving home and thinking, I want to feel like this all the time!” She fell in love instantly. After a few years of practicing she decided to train as an instructor. She chose Yogafit because it was what she connected to the most at the time and the training is easily adaptable to all levels.
Jaymie Leigh is married to Spencer and they have two boys, Harper and Finn. She is inspired by music and each of her classes has a new unique playlist. She enjoys teaching yoga for the many benefits that she knows her mind and body are receiving. The more she practices the more she grows.
Rachel is a speech-language pathologist and is certified to teach yoga and barre.
She decided to become an instructor after taking classes for several years and experiencing benefits like decreased back pain, increased breath support for running, and increased flexibility. She wanted to get certified to help show others how yoga can help them.
