Jamie Isaac believes in the power of mindful movement to change the world. As a surfer who is devoted to Pilates, Jamie founded Azulfit
, Retreats, and Fluid Life Pilates
, to share his passion with those who are ready to take their next conscious step toward vibrant health. He believes that sharing mindful movement within a supportive community has the power to create positive and long-lasting change that reaches beyond just a class or retreat.
With a degree in Physical Education and sports sciences and with over 30 years of experience in coaching and training human movement, his Pilates passion ignited when he experienced how incredible the practice was for his surfing performance. He loves to share the incredible power the Pilates method has to empower all his students towards living a more vibrant life.
Jamie's journey as an instructor began in Clinical Pilates, focusing on rehab, then onto a contemporary certification, following a path that has led him back towards the source. He studied to become a classical teacher and Master Instructor for Peak Pilates and has been featured in their educational videos. He has been mentored by Lolita San Miguel and is honored to be certified by her as a Master Teacher.
With a love for the authentic work, Jamie's teaching also draws deeply from his time in Santa Fe learning from Michele Larsson and Celia Hulton and his past and ongoing experiences within sports conditioning and well-being. As an eternal student passionate about the Pilates method, the learning journey continues.
Jamie is one of the world's first specialist Pilates retreat teachers, having designed and lead Pilates retreats for over 12 years. He is co-founder of Azulfit, one of Europe's leading Pilates and yoga retreats, located in The Canary Islands. At his studio in California, and through workshops and retreats across the globe, Jamie loves nothing more than supporting and celebrating the transformations of his students… except maybe playing with his awesome kids and catching a few waves.
