Jamie Reeves

As a songwriter, Jamie’s musical journey began as a small child singing and writing songs with her two older brothers. In her early teens she was introduced to many sacred texts, including the Bhagavad Gita. This new found, old felt passion, sparked a fire in her heart and left her with a deep knowing that Yoga was the next step on her path. While the thought of Yoga seems light and lofty, Jamie soon found that dedication to the practice had cracked her wide open! So she dove into the wounds, peeled back the layers and shortly after took her first Yoga teacher training.

Raised by outdoors and my bicycle, I gained a deep fascination for nature, but my practical upbringing suggested a life in business, so I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UTD with a focus on Environmental Science and Business Management.  I started my professional career as a medical assistant / office nurse, ran business operations for a large hospice in Missouri, and came back to Dallas for a career in finance & sales operations in the software industry during the booming late '90s.

Samantha Martin

I spent many years searching for a fitness routine that would keep me motivated to exercise on a regular basis: aerobics, running, walking; nothing held my interest for more than a couple of months. Boredom would set in and I would give up. All of that changed when I stepped into my first yoga class in 2006. The simple desire to incorporate fitness into my life evolved into something much bigger than I ever imagined. My yoga practice helps me stay physically fit, while keeping me grounded and balanced off the mat as well.

Chrissy Cortez-Mathis

In 2000, I was working at a stressful job & needed some relief for my mind & my body. Over the years, I would go to other forms of exercise but I always came back to yoga. As a gardener & backpacker, I needed the stretches, strengthening & balancing practice to keep in shape to do the stuff I really love to do.

I teach a variety of yoga classes: Gentle, slower paced classes that focus on body alignment & the breath. These classes allow time for exploring postures & fine tuning how the posture feels for your body.

Certifications: 

200 Hr RYT through Advanced Yoga Studies at the Mat Yoga Studio
