Jamie Mercadante began practicing yoga close to seven years ago as a form of exercise and to find a more natural way to help decrease anxiety and stress. She would never have thought that yoga was going to be a way of life. Yoga has not only benefited her physically but also mentally and spiritually. She has found her balance in life through yoga and meditation. Her mat is where she goes to allow herself to embrace life’s challenges.
Jamie is originally from Newport News, VA and now resides in High Point, NC with her children. Before her journey to become a yoga instructor, she had been in the healthcare profession. She now feels instead of taking care of patients in a hospital that her purpose in life is to teach yoga and give back to the community. She feels yoga has combined the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of her life so beautifully.
She obtained her 200-hour RYT certification at MindBodyFitness Yoga in Greensboro, NC. While her favorite forms of yoga to practice are Ashtanga and Vinyasa, she enjoys teaching Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Yin, and Power Yoga.
