Jamie Austin – Yoga Studio Owner Extraordinaire

This is Jamie Austin. We met her at the front desk at Yoga Six St. Louis years ago. She has since obtained her 200 hour yoga teacher certification and opened her very own light-filled yoga studio in a part of St. Louis where there are none. Jamie is a hero and we applaud her choice to create this studio’s encouraging atmosphere dedicated to making yoga accessible to all.

Jamie’s yoga establishment – Mindful Movements – is in Old North St. Louis, north of what locals know as the Delmar divide. Jamie is a pioneer. She wanted to take yoga into an area ripe for growth and layered with diversity and say “Hey you can do yoga, if you’re not already, and I’m going to make it as accessible as I can.”

She has been doing just that too. With a schedule of classes offered 6 days a week, Mindful Movements will achieve their mission. And added to their schedule this fall, is a tour of yoga classes taught by area instructors who specialize in their specific area of practice. From Ashtanga to Restorative, there are 13 varieties being offered through a non-profit company called Yoga Buzz. The weekly 75-minute, all levels classes on Wednesday evenings this fall are just $10 to drop in. Now that’s accessible!

The purpose of this Yoga Tour is to offer students a variety of class formats from around our area, so that they may explore a style of this ancient art they may have wanted to explore. The schedule of classes and their weeks are as follows:

August 31: Sat Inder – Ashtanga
September 7: Sol Asar – Kemetic Yoga
September 14: Lizzie Salsich – Restorative Yoga
September 21: Angie Campbell – Hatha with Anusara Influence
September 28: Natasha Baebler – Adaptive Flow
October 5: SiriAtma Kaur – Kundalini
October 12: Christine Kick – AcroYoga
October 19: Brittany Hill – Back Trap Yoga (Hatha with a funky twist)

November 2: Keena Ray Alexander – Kemetic Yoga
November 9: Glenna Bedoya – Hatha
November 16: Julie Bergfeld – Baptiste Power Yoga
November 30: Roxanne Krummenacher – Alignment-based Vinyasa

Mindful Movements is located at 1400 N Market Street in Old North St. Louis. There is plentiful street parking around the studio. No need to pre-register for any of these classes. Just show up!
