Jimmy began studying yoga in depth in 2001 while training as a dancer in Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Virginia. His first introduction to yoga was through his grandmother who practiced yoga in the 60s and 70s and taught him how to meditate. Later on, as he continued his studies as a dancer, many of his teachers would use yoga as an integral part of their warm ups. As his practice grew and he took an interest in Eastern Philosophy, he felt compelled to share the joy yoga had brought him in his own life and sought out Lisa Asha Rapp at My Yoga Spirit in Norfolk and quickly enrolled in the school's teacher training program at the age of 15.
Jimmy's training background includes workshops with Sharon Gannon and David Life, Dharma Mittra, Krishna Das, Jules Febre, Manorma, Dana Flynn and Dhanurdhara Swami. He has also attended several workshops held at Satchidananda Ashram in Yogaville, Virginia.
Jimmy has lead retreats, workshops, kirtans, and has directed several teacher training programs in the New York City area, Virginia, and the Midwest.
Jimmy firmly believes in the purity and potency of the original yogic philosophy and tries to stay true to that in both his classes and his everyday life. His love of teaching is evident in the enthusiastic manner in which he leads his classes.
He is a founding member of Embodied Philosophy, an online yoga philosophy resource dedicating to bringing the wisdom of yoga to life in the everyday.
