Jamie King

Jamie is the co-founder of Flex & Flow, and has over 20 years of meditation and yoga practice. She is known for her challenging and creative sequencing, and ability to draw even the most skeptical yogis into yoga. Her style is dynamic and powerful sequences that mix in creative movements with asanas, while cultivating shared awareness. Jamie launched Flex & Flow (formerly Fit Approach) in 2011, and opened Flex & Flow PDX in 2016 to share her passion for movement with others. She believes that each person who experiences Flex & Flow should feel a sense of belonging and leave feeling empowered through movement and community. Jamie enjoys challenging students to move with their breath, build heat and strength, and find their power within. Jamie began practicing yoga in high school, but it wasn't until after she graduated from UC Berkeley in 2004, and started a career in high tech marketing and public relations that she discovered the true power of yoga. She was feeling lost in her own life, burnt out in her career, and stuck in her own past, and knew she needed to change. She began practicing yoga daily and incorporating more movement into her life, and was thrilled by the results. For the first time in a long time she felt focused, clear headed, and inspired - she felt at peace with herself. Through her own transformation, she quickly realized her purpose in life was to inspire everybody to move and feel more free in their bodies. Jamie is an accomplished 500 E-RYT yoga instructor, RCYT kids, teens, and trauma certified instructor, and creator of Flex & Flow's signature HIIT & Flow workout, as well as a competitive ultra runner.
