Meet Our Founder

As a graduate in Kinesiology, Exercise Science from Humboldt State University, Tamra James has always been fascinated by human movement.

Originally from Tuscon, Arizona, Tamra came to Humboldt for school and received a scholarship to play soccer at Humboldt State University while studying Biomechanics and Kinesiology.

Tamra holds accreditation with BASI Pilates Training and a 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training. She opened Movewell in August of 2019 to offer a wide variety of physical fitness choices to the Humboldt area and beyond.

If she’s not in the studio, you can find her adventuring in the beautiful Humboldt landscape or snuggled up at home with her pets: Zeus, Zeppelin, Jasper and Agate.
