Jamie Kinkeade

Jamie was born with an innate desire to help people (women in particular) attain their highest form of being.  Throughout her childhood years and early adult life, she struggled to find her own self-worth and identity. She always assumed her abilities and talents would fall short of the life of which she dreamed.  Thankfully, the Universe had other plans for her.  After having two children, marrying an amazing man, getting a college degree, and beginning her career as a teacher, something was still missing. 

In 2013, she decided it was time to start living and opened The Studio by Jamie Kinkeade. She started doing lots and lots of work on herself so that she could dream big and truly believe that her dreams were going to become realities. Throughout this process, she found herself wanting to share everything she was learning about mindset shift and manifesting your own destiny with her students and instructors.  She wanted all women to find freedom from the inhibitions that hold them back from being the women they are meant to be.  Two years ago, during that time of heightened self-awareness, she created Ignition. Ignition is the practice of overcoming struggles in the physical realm to symbolize that we can overcome any challenge with which we are presented in all aspects of life.

This is accomplished through motivational speaking, inspirational music, intense physical, mental, and emotional strain to shift one’s perspective and mindset about life. Ignition is about learning how to believe in and love oneself more fiercely than ever before so that we can share our gifts and love with those around us. Jamie’s small fitness studio has now grown into a successful fitness and hot yoga studio filled with women dedicated to lifting each other up and encouraging one another to live their best life.
