Who Is Jamie Rylett?
The man behind Yoga Evolved
In a time when we see many ex dancers and gymnasts making the jump to teaching yoga, Jamie Rylett’s background couldn’t be more different. Jamie discovered yoga when he was a stressed-out sales exec, who was much more likely to be found spending his free time on a Midlands nightclub door than meditating in an Indian Ashram! That all changed in 2014 when a frequently occurring co-incidence eventually lead to him discovering Bikram Yoga. He quickly became aware of yoga’s ability to correct physical imbalances, reduce pain and restore range of motion, not to mention the mental clarity and calmness it provides.
Inspired to explore the art further, Jamie headed to India to complete his 200 TTC. This began the cycle of continuous development. Numerous trainings with teachers including Bernie Clark, Adam Husler and Jill Miller followed, plus 300-hour advanced training with Jason Crandell (twice!).
Jamie specialises in Vinyasa Flow and Yin. His classes are educational, playful, functional and adaptable to the individual student’s needs. As a former DJ, you can always guarantee that Jamie has spent far too long preparing the accompanying playlist!
Having benefited so much from yoga himself, Jamie now tries to share the practice with as many people as possible through his fun and friendly Yoga Evolved Festivals and workshops, including the infamous Gin Yin!
