Jaimée Horn

Jaimée orchestrates an expansive & resonant space - where imagination can stretch and bodies feel enriched. Everything she knows how to be is shaped by her background in movement. Her classes weave thoughtful sequences with carefully curated playlists. She is here because she wants to participate in creating beauty, because movement delights and stirs what is stagnant; because connecting is a portal to joyful self-awareness. Jaimée teaches public (and private) yoga classes, supports labouring people as they birth new babes into the world (she’s a DONA trained doula as well as a certified pre-natal yoga instructor), and hosts retreats in one of her favourite (and the most vibrant) corners of the planet. When not practicing or tending her garden, she’s wandering through High Park with her sweet girl Ella, or planning her next trip to the elemental spaciousness of Costa Rica.

Eric

In the spring of 1999, at the age of 25, Eric embarked on a pilgrimage of several weeks that would eventually lead him to Robert A Johnson’s door. There began his initiation into the world of dreams and an introduction to Active Imagination, Carl Jung’s technique for dreaming awake. From that time on, Eric undertook the lifelong pursuit of his own analysis with Robert A. Johnson, until shortly before his death last year, on September 12th 2018, at the age of 97.

From 1999, until Robert A Johnson’s retirement from the lecture circuit in 2001, Eric accompanied him on numerous lectures and workshops across North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Eric has lectured in Montreal and held workshops in his new home province of British Columbia on Galiano Island, where he maintains a private practice.
