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 looking to escape stress – but what I discovered under 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. Slowing down, acting patiently, and taking care of myself is still hard,  but they’re the most worthwhile practices. This is what I aim to share.
