Jamie fell in love with Pilates through her training as a classical ballet dancer. Pilates was part of the required curriculum at The Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida. She was hooked from the beginning. Her instructor at The Harid Conservatory, John Mahoney, was certified by Romana Kryzanowska. Jamie’s ballet training also includes the The Kirov Academy.
A career-ending injury prevented Jamie from ever dancing professionally and instead she began to work in in fashion editorial for The New York Times: T Magazine.She decided to make a huge career switch as she missed utilizing her body in a comparable way to ballet and returned to her love for Pilates. Teaching Pilates and enabling her clients to transform and thrive has been hugely rewarding for Jamie and she has never looked back. After living in New York for over ten years, Jamie relocated to London with her dog Herman. You can find Jamie taking boxing classes, walking through Hyde Park with Herman or spreading the joy of Pilates over West London.
What really intrigued me and what I love about Clean and Lean is their approach to living a healthy life. It’s much more about feeling and living well, opposed to just exercise. Making the small tweaks that allow for big changes. It encompasses everything from eating food with good ingredients, mindfulness, being kind to others and of course moving your body. All of these things, I believe make you a happier, healthier person. Bodyism gives good vibes and it’s all about the vibes.- Jamie
