Jamie Smith
Instructor, Inner Power Yoga Studio
Each and every day I gain a greater appreciation for the balance and wholeness that yoga brings to my life and the lives of my students. I believe that our greatest teacher lies within, and my intention is to provide an atmosphere of self acceptance and discovery so that my students are able to connect and listen to their bodies. In my classes I combine the elements of breath, balance, and core strength allowing my students the opportunity to find their edge and ride it into the blissful experience that is yoga. 

I began my love of yoga in 1999, when I was fortunate enough to practice with such teachers as Max Strom and Steve Ross. Shortly after the birth of my daughter in 2004, I felt an intense draw to share with others that which brought so much balance to my life. I went on to get my certification at Santa Barbara Yoga Center where I studied Yoga with Erich Schiffman, History and Philosophy of Yoga with Scott Blossom, Anatomy of Yoga with Paul Grilly, Iyengar Yoga with Lisa Walford, Therapeutic Yoga with Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal, Prenatal Yoga with Siddhi Ellinghoven and Practicum Yoga with Heather Tiddens.  

For the past 15 years Inner Power Yoga Studio has become a second home to me. I am amazed at the caliber of teachers at our studio and feel blessed to be able to practice with many of them regularly. If you are reading this, I sincerely hope that Inner Power Yoga Studio will become your second home as well.
