Jaime Ray

Owner/Instructor RYT 200

I came to yoga for the same reason many people first come to yoga. . . to balance the strenuous physical effects resulting from my occupation. As a massage therapist, offering deep tissue work to heal others, is not always physically healing to me! As my yoga practice blossomed, I began to experience a certain peace that yoga brought to my mind, and a new joy that it brought to my spirit. I felt myself transforming. I wanted to share, so I began teaching yoga to children. Working with kids and learning more about the positive changes yoga was bringing to my life, I wanted yoga to grow in the Hattiesburg community. The vision for DownTown Down Dog, A Community Yoga Center, began to emerge. Always a student and practitioner first, I am honored to be able to teach classes in Asana flow, Mantra meditation and Kid’s Yoga. 

Jaime has been studying and teaching yoga in Hattiesburg since 2003: Teacher Training Certification 200 Hour/ SOUL School @ Wild Lotus (NOLA) Teaching Experience/ The Yoga Room, "Yoga at the Walthall", Teacher and Co-Founder/ DownTown Down Dog.
