About Jamie Rylett
A lifelong martial artist, Jamie discovered yoga as the perfect vehicle for correcting imbalances within the body caused by years of Brazilian JiuJitsu training and competition. He quickly realised that the benefits of yoga practice went way beyond the physical and that regular practice brought with it a unique feeling of calmness that carried over into his daily life. Wanting to explore this ancient art further at its source, Jamie set off for India to complete his 200hr multi-style TTC. It was during this time that he discovered Yin yoga and became inspired by the work of Paul Grilley. Immediately upon returning to London he bought every Yin book he could find, then returned to India to complete a 50hr Yin TTC with Maheshwara Manfred Lehner and Shakti Simone Lehner, both of whom are certified teachers under Paul Grilley. After staying in India to teach for Lotus Yoga, Jamie returned to London to complete an additional Yin and Yang 50hr TTC.
Yin Yoga is a scientific approach to yoga combining cutting edge Western anatomical knowledge, meridian theory taken from traditional Chinese medicine and the principles of Taoist Yoga. Yin yoga offers deeper access to the body targeting connective tissue, fascia and ligaments with the aim of lubricating and protecting the joints
Yoga for Everyone
Having taught at some of London’s top studios, Jamie is now working hard to spread the Yin yoga gospel and make Yin accessible to everyone, regardless of age, experience or fitness level. Forever a student, Jamie recently completed a six month mentorship programme with Norman Blair, one of London’s most respected teachers and author of ‘Brightening Our Inner Skies’. He continues to expand his knowledge and improve his practice and can regularly be found in his local Buddhist cafe with a yoga book and chai latte in hand!
More than just classes!
With a background in arranging successful events, Jamie has brought this experience over to the yoga world in order to deliver more than just classes. His Gin Yin concept has proved a big hit and his first ever yoga event, Gathering of Yogis, received widespread praise. Next came a successful retreat in Goa, which was followed by a series of talks on Mindfulness at ESCP Europe Business School as part of his Mindfulness Evolved project. With more talks, classes, retreats and workshops planned, it's great time to start following @jamierylettyoga on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you don’t miss out on any future events!
