Be Hummingbird, a venture inspired by the word yoga— which means union or to bring together — is passionately led by Jamie Coffey and supported by a team that is fully dedicated to providing opportunities for connection: connecting breath and body, connecting mind and spirit, and connecting human beings with one another, as well as to their truest nature.
Through classes, workshops, retreats, and trainings our mission is to provide experiences, both on and off the mat, that offer possibilities for discovery and change. We are here to celebrate the human spirit and to enjoy this journey of living, and we invite you to join us. If not now, then when?
Jamie Coffey strives to embody the tremendous benefits of her practice in each and every facet of her life. Having grown up in the often demanding world of competitive figure skating, she found her way from the ice rink to the yoga mat in search of tools to help her manage her anxiety and depression. While the poses came relatively easy to her as an athlete, it was the moment she learned to breathe, deeply and truly, that changed her life forever.
Understanding the power of pranayama and the rhythm of the breath completely shaped her teaching style, which is a unique blend of Hatha and Vinyasa infused with meditation, humor, spirituality, and flow. A journey on the mat with her is designed to open your heart and mind, stretch and strengthen your body, and to instill compassion for all beings – or what she refers to as “making space for grace”.
Jamie credits her amazing teacher, J. Brown, and her training at Abhyasa Yoga Center & J. Brown Yoga for providing the foundation for her dynamic and playful practice. Further, she is grateful to her dedicated students and fellow yogis for all of their loving support and guidance.
Outside of the studio, Jamie has enjoyed a decade-long career in the non-profit and higher education sectors, working with premier organizations such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, New York Botanical Garden, Barnard College/Columbia University, Ringling College of Art and Design, and Ice Dance International. She received her Masters Degree in Performance Studies from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and her B.A from Rollins College.
Teaching yoga and sharing her practice is Jamie’s greatest joy, honor and privilege. Om Shanti!
Private Yoga Instruction
Jamie’s favorite way to teach is one-to-one, as it provides the opportunity to design a practice specifically tailored to the needs of the student.
Private sessions are open to any and all levels—whether you are interested in discovering what it’s like to be on the yoga mat for the very first time, or if you are looking to deepen aspects of your dedicated practice through meditation, philosophy, alignment or personal intentions.
Sessions for couples or small groups are also available, and all can be held on the beach or at Rosemary Court Yoga. Please click below to schedule or email me with any questions.
Inspired by yogic connection, much of the Be Hummingbird mission is to gather people together in interesting and beautiful places all over the world in order to explore new cultures and meet new people, while also sharing a daily meditation and yoga practice, recreating in nature, eating great food, enjoying body treatments, and having fun!
Our experiences and adventures help connect people with others—but, even more so, they allow people the chance to reconnect with themselves. Time to remember who they are and what makes them the remarkable being they are.
