Hi, I’m Jacqui.
One way or the other I have worked with physical bodies all my working life. In 2002, I decided to totally immerse myself in the study and practice of hatha yoga. It seemed such a natural progression from teaching aerobics and fitness. For 18 years, I ran a yoga studio. Now I’m focused on small groups, private lessons, workshops, teaching other yoga instructors and one-day urban retreats.
My teachers are:
- Leonard Cohen, Guru
- Krishna das, Bhakti Yoga
- Tara Brach, Mindfulness, Radical Acceptance and Compassion
- Christina Sell, Informed Hatha Flow and more (formerly Anusara)
- Christopher Wallis, Tantric Non Dual Shaivism
Yoga brings me joy for so many reasons:
the people, the discipline of daily practice and the music….. God is a DJ in my books!
It’s so balancing — something we can all use more of right now.
Yoga has taught me who I am by teaching me who I am not!
If I need to be calmer, more contained or more energised, I just dip into my yogic toolbox for the perfect practice. I want to give my students the same access to these tools of self-care and awareness.
I hope that my students experience this too and that – after the class has ended – they go home with their own ‘yogic toolbox’: movements, breath-work and meditation for a strong, resilient body, a quieter mind and a clearer headspace.
