Cary Hot Yoga’s Beginner Bishnu Ghosh Certified Instructor

Bio
My first introduction to yoga was a Rodney Yee video that I picked up the bookstore. I loved weight lifting and thought this “gentle” form of exercise would help me in my flexibility. It was then that I realized that yoga was not just stretching and was harder than I thought it would be! A few years later, I decided to try Bikram yoga and loved it. I started off slow with a very inconsistent practice (2x/week) and became much more consistent after the birth of my son. I’ve been practicing this yoga for over 10 years and still constantly learning something new about the yoga and my practice. I’m passionate about sharing my love of yoga with others and my husband jokes that it’s my answer to almost everything (It’s true!). I’ve been known to break out yoga postures at my dentist’s office and at work to get my co-workers interested in yoga. I look forward to sharing my love of yoga and hope to inspire others to deepen their practice.

Cary Hot Yoga’s Beginner Bishnu Ghosh Certified Instructor

Bio
With 7 years of adventures working in worldwide Aeronautics industry within Procurement for strategic commodities and two sweet little kids later, my 3rd international relocation led me to Yoga. Yoga Asana is a powerful way of self-expression and showed me a new facet of who I was, bringing up a compassionate awareness of thoughts and feelings, with a practical, healthy way to master them, turning me into a “heavily meditated” mom. Walking the path of yoga asana starting from Bikram 26 postures Beginner Series is an efficient way to reach beyond physical limits and kept me progressing to this day. I really enjoy connecting and sharing this fun experience with anyone who wants to come over and practice.

JAIME

Education
Master of School Administration – East Carolina University
Elementary Education – Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

Career
Assistant Principal – Wake County Public School System

Yoga
200 Hrs – Vinyasa Flow Instructor


Jaime enjoys teaching a Vinyasa style class (sacred space, Kryias, Sun A, Sun B, Sun C, core, balance, spine, hips, inversion). She also loves guiding students flow sequence from Yang to Yin, which is 20-30 minutes of vinyasa, as well as 20 minutes of yin poses. Jaime calls this “YinYasa”. For most teachers, a pose is just a pose. As an educator, Jaime treats every pose as a doorway, and a student who is willing to knock on, open, and go through that door has the potential to enter a room where Fate has provided an abundance of native plants from which that student can create a wreath to adorn a very door she just walked through.
