About Whole Soul

Hi, I’m Jaime Boswell, a yoga therapist and owner of Whole Soul Wellness Yoga. I am passionate about sharing the transformative and healing practices of yoga with people in a way that honors varying physical abilities, injuries, and challenges that arise along the journey of life. I partner with like-minded teachers to bring to you classes and retreats which offer a welcoming place for middle-aged and older adults to explore self-empowering, accessible and adaptive practices rooted in the wisdom teachings of yoga. 

My Story

My yoga story began as a stressed, lonely, unhealthy 25 year old transitioning from graduate school to a new job as an environmental scientist in southwest Florida.

On the recommendation of a friend, I began practicing yoga at home using VHS tapes, something just clicked and I was hooked. I practiced and studied on my own almost daily from the start and my mind, body and spirit transformed as I found a new way of being.

I began teaching yoga in 2006 and started sharing the practices with others in my community. Simply as a factor of the local demographics my students have always been predominantly middle-aged and older adults, and they often shared with me the physical changes and challenges they were experiencing.

At some point I realized the training I had done had not fully prepared me to help my students, so I paused my teaching for a little while, and dove back in to studying. With over 1000 hours of additional training, I am now a certified yoga therapist with a much deeper understanding of how to adapt yoga practices to meet the ever changing needs of my students.

The other teachers that I partner with all have extensive training going well beyond the minimum requirements for teaching yoga, and they also have a personal passion for teaching adaptive, accessible, and deeply meaningful yoga.

When I think of what it is that I really want people to know about me as a yoga teacher and yoga therapist, the first thing that comes to mind is acceptance and accessibility. I see yoga as something that can be practiced by anyone of any age, body type, or physical ability. Yoga to me is never about what you can do, it is more about what you are willing to explore, let go of and accept.

Kathy Fotterall, CYT-500

I found my way to yoga at the end of a career as a business owner where I shared my love of creating beauty as a florist. Yoga has been a way to come back to myself. I now find my mat to be a place of refuge and want to share with my students that this is a place to be without judgement, the place of compassion and acceptance to trust yourself first, a place to listen to your body and move into stillness.
