Introduction to Ayurveda


This class is taught by:

Jamie Verley

The first time I found myself on a yoga mat was in 2006, on vacation, with a library DVD and the gripping fear that I was doing it all wrong. I was surprised that during the practice, I enjoyed the stilling sensation of being aware of my body and breath, and after, the warm and lasting glow I felt. Upon returning home, I signed up for a beginner series at my local studio, where I stayed for 5 years before moving to Fort Myers, FL. For me, yoga began as a way to heal severe back pain, condition my body, and to find serenity in a stressful life. Since, the true and lasting tradition of yoga has continued to unfold for me, and has become my greatest source of physical and emotional healing, of confidence and personal strength, and of mental and spiritual growth. I am honored by the opportunity to share my love for the many facets of yoga and the wellness system of Ayurveda through studio classes, workshops, private classes, and Be Well sessions! Through light-hearted, encouraging, and alignment/stability focused practices, my intention is to authentically empower others to find and grow in the strength and peace of their own inner lights.

It took me almost two years of “thinking about it” to actually walk into a yoga studio and lay down my mat. Little did I know that day was going to be the start of real change in my life. I went from being too self-conscious of my body type to exercise around others, to becoming a yoga teacher. I completed my RYT 200 in June 2017, and added a Himalayan Institute certification as an Ayurveda Specialist in February of 2018. 
I am in constant amazement of how yoga has changed the way I live my life and the way I deal with life’s unexpected challenges. There is increased clarity and peacefulness that helps me process the world around me with strength and grace. This is my hope for you, that yoga helps you along your life’s journey; to nourish the body, mind and spirit on and off the mat, as it has mine.
The light in me honors the light in you. Namaste.

It has been just over twenty years since I first stepped into a yoga studio. Since then I have studied with many great teachers, from a variety of yoga styles. They have all shaped, and continue to shape, my experience and practice of yoga and meditation. I believe that breath and alignment are the most transformational aspects of yoga and rely on them for support as I make my way through this amazing life. After relocating to Fort Myers, FL from Philadelphia, PA in 2012, I was in search of a new yoga “home”; I found that home at Yoga Bird. I received my 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Yoga Bird in 2017. Although I consider myself a student first, I am honored and eager to share the dynamic tradition of yoga with others. My biggest source of inspiration is my three-year-old son, who is full of spirit, curiosity, and a playful approach to facing new challenges. May we all be that way on the yoga mat and in life. I am grateful to be a part of the Yoga Bird community and look forward to meeting you in the studio.
