Jayme LaForte
Yoga Instructor

Jayme was formally trained and received her 200 hour CYT in Hatha Yoga in Oceanside, California. From there she pursued trauma-based yoga and taught for a non-profit called Connected Warriors. During that time she received my 300 hour CYT, in Indonesia, in Hatha, Yin and Vinyasa flow. Trauma-based yoga is her passion, to be able to help those who suffer from post-traumatic stress or have gone through a traumatic experience. This also led into further study of yin and restorative yoga, as they have similar benefits, which continue to teach and practice today. She is also pursuing her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) at Pacific College of Health and Science.
