Kristina Jamo, RYT 200, PT, DPT
Kristina discovered yoga during graduate school while seeking a healthy outlet to reduce stress and manage chronic migraines. Excited to share the joy and healing she found with others she pursued her RYT 200 and reiki attunements through Rainbow Body Yoga in June of 2018.
Kristina has a deep love for anatomy, kinesiology (the science of movement), and witnessing others take control of their healing journeys. Since her practice as a physical therapist and a yoga instructor began at the same time, the two fields naturally began to merge. She prides herself in introducing yoga to her patients healing from musculoskeletal conditions and utilizing her knowledge of the body and movement to craft her yoga classes. Her goal is to empower others in discovering their self-healing abilities while spreading awareness of the roles both physical and energetic anatomies have in overall wellness.
"My 200 hr YTT with Cleo was the best decision I've made in my 11+ year history as a fitness instructor and lover of yoga. The immersive training prepared me to teach yoga that is true to form and tradition, but also taught me how to embrace my own unique style of teaching. Since my training, I've led so many successful yoga classes, yoga combo classes, special workshops, and guided meditations. Cleo's training gave me the confidence to not only teach yoga, but also to confidently get out into the world and share my gifts. Her whole self approach really cracked me wide open and allowed me to discover interests in so many healing modalities in addition to yoga, and I am so grateful to have had such a thorough training that went so far beyond the asana practice of yoga and deep into the philosophy as well. In all honesty, she enlightened me." - Allison
"Since the yoga retreat my life has changed so much for the better. I feel so empowered and inspired to spread knowledge and wisdom to others. Getting certified in yoga has improved my life and helped me to lead a happy, healthy life, loving what I do and guiding others on their own path to self love and healing." - Carmela
"YTT with Rainbow Body Yoga was truly a life transforming experience. I cannot recommend this program enough. I learned all that I sought after and I discovered things about myself I didn't even know I needed to find." - Kristina
“My gut told me to participate in Cleo’s immersive YTT retreat and I am so very glad I listened. I felt supported and safe to be my self from the moment I arrived on the farm. I appreciated being able to tune in to the natural world while learning, as most other trainings take place indoors. I also enjoyed the lessons on other healing modalities (e.g., tarot, herbalism, and ayurveda) that Cleo included in our syllabus. This illustrated the idea that while yoga is a powerful practice, it is even more beneficial when a part of a multifaceted holisitic healing routine. Cleo’s training empowered me to embrace my gifts, find/use my voice, and honor the calling I feel to help others heal and I am forever grateful for that. But most of all, I am grateful for the connections I made as I keep in touch with many of the beautiful beings I met and they continue to inspire me well beyond the training!” - Laura
"The Rainbow Body two week yoga teacher training program was an immersive and enlightening experience. The program focused on the balance of body, mind, and spirit. Cleo is an experienced, knowledgeable, and exemplary teacher. Her calm energy and patient approach allow the student to feel comfortable with the learning process. I was able to gain the skills I wanted to acquire and apply them effectively in my life and my work." - Conny
