Director of Training & Development / Founding Teacher
After traveling the world studying movement, Jaycee found a knowingness that the way we move is a mirror for the way we live. Growing up in a small New Jersey town, she struggled to find her true purpose and deep connection in her environment. She turned to dance, an expressive gift that brought her closer to receiving the wisdom she yearned for. Jaycee found her way through movement and went on to become an international, award-winning competitive Latin Ballroom dancer with a career in commercials, TV, film, and theater -- including when she hosted a series on Travel Channel called Dance the World.
Jaycee's discovery of yoga - a marriage of movement and consciousness - was transformative. Her curiosity about the connection between spirituality & physicality led to a pilgrimage through Peru, India, Africa, Brazil, and Cuba where she studied the restorative roots of movement with seers, masters and healers. Then, Jaycee immersed herself in movement therapy modalities : 5Rhythms, yoga trance dance (Gabrielle Roth, Shiva Rea) and a 200-hour yoga teacher training (Alison Sinatra).
As if divinely guided, she serendipitously reconnected with Taryn Toomey and found her true home at The Class. Ever profound, The Class was fertile ground to work on aspects of herself that no other movement practice had opened doors to. In this, Jaycee found a powerful space to help others heal and became the Taryn's first Teacher trainee.
Now as a Founding Teacher & the Director of Training & Development, Jaycee oversees the Teacher Training Program in order to educate and elevate new leaders of The Class practice.
Jaycee’s Classes are empowering, expressive, and liberating. She guides students to move beyond the intensity of the surface to seek the freedom within.
Jaycee will co-lead The Retreatment Whistler in October 2017 with Kevin Courtney and will be featured in The Global Immersion programming in November 2017.
Jaycee has traveled internationally to share The Class by Taryn Toomey method -- Art Basel 2016 (Miami), lululemon x The Class by Taryn Toomey 2017 (Toronto, Chicago, Miami), The TOGETHER Tour 2017 (Austin) & more.
