    Hey you guys - Don't know if this has been posted but Jamie Silverstein opened a yoga studio down the street from where I live-next to a teashop I like.

    I liked her bio page -- she sounds very happy. Nice to see.

    Some of the FSUers who went to Skate America in Kent were thinking about going to take a class with her, but the scheduling didn't work out.

    :confused: The studio is in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle. Has she opened another one?

    I went to a few classes there when they first opened (not just taught by Jamie). It's heated yoga, and the emphasis is more on the fitness aspect of yoga than the mind/body connection. Very friendly, nice space.

    When I first read it, I also thought it was Capitol Hill in DC until I looked at the map. It's all relative...

    I really like Grinning Yogi. I live on Capitol Hill, and it's pretty conveniently located. I've gone there maybe 5 times now, and I've had Jamie as a teacher maybe 3 of those times. I like her as a teacher, she's really friendly and is obviously having lots of fun. I like the studio because it's heated but not too hot. I think like 85-ish degrees? Enough to work up a sweat, but nothing like Bikram. They have a nice lunch-hour quickie session for $5.
