about me

Jaime Ledesma

Corporate Well-being Strategist | Yoga Teacher | Mindfulness Practitioner

Growing up, yoga was something my mom did. I was a highly competitive ballerina, and I thought yoga was too “easy”. I pushed, shoved, and overachieved my way into adulthood, unaware of the connection to the effects on my body (migraines, inability to sleep, lack of focus, and a growing sense of inadequacy). I came back to yoga looking to escape stress – but what I discovered under Hilaire Lockwood’s traditional guidance was much more profound. I found a way to soften my approach to challenges, rewire old patterns of self-criticism and anxiety, and to experience gratitude in the smallest aspects of my life.
