I am a 200 hour registered yoga instructor, specialized in Hatha vinyasa flow. I love helping my students strengthen their bodies and minds in a safe, fun and positive environment. I welcome students of all levels and encourage self-love and compassion.
I love to see students bridge the gap between body and mind and learn to love themselves. Yoga will help take you to places (physically and mentally) that you never dreamed were possible and watching this happen for my students gives me all the joy in the world!
Jackie is the lost compassionate positive person I've ever met. She not only delivers the flow, but connects in a way that you will not forget. I don't even know her, but I know her yoga is pure yoga gold. Highly recommend 🙏👏🏻
Jackie is a yoga goddess among us! She has such an authentic warm personality, always comes prepared, and is so creative. I always leave her feeling challenged and energerized. She really has such an amazing spirit. Thank you Jackie!
Yoga with Jackie is great! She’s very knowledgeable about poses, transitions, and provides a soothing direction during class. She provides helpful adjustments, vocally and hands on, and is great with allowing you to modify. Her classes are filled with gratitude, peace, non judgment, and patience.
Jackie makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. The soothing tone of her voice and her choice of words always causes me to let go of all my tension and it never fails that I cry at the end of every session because I know I did some hard work and have something inside I still need to let go of. Also, her yoga workouts always make my entire body sore afterwards, so I know I got what I needed out of it. Just great body and mind all over. When I do see her, I consider her practice one of my major forms of self care therapy. She’s incredible.
I like to begin with learning more about the student's body (are there any current or past injuries? Reoccuring pain in the body? Assess what muscles require more strength and flexibility. etc.)
Then, I want to know about personal goals. Are you working towards a weight loss goal? Are you looking to tone your muscles? Do you want to learn certain yoga poses extensively? Do you want to destress and restore your body? Are you wanting meditation practice?
And finally - LET'S PRACTICE :) - the more we communicate about your needs, the better I can help you, so lets chat!
I have 200 registered hours of yoga training, and continue to to expand my education with work shops and self-study. My background includes the study of Hatha Vinyasa yoga, meditaion, anatomy, history and philosophy of yoga.
(recent workshop 2/16/18: 8 hours with Carmen and Moises Aguilar - linking poses, inversions, safety in backbends, hip openers)
Self study books: The Power of Now, The Four Agreements, You are Here (Thich Nhat Hanh), The Great Courses: Practicing Mindfulness, The Power of Ashtanga Yoga (Kino McGregor), Teaching People not Poses, Eastern Body Western Mind, etc.)
I am very flexible with pricing options. Please contact me so that we can work something out that works for both of us :) **discounts given to parties of 2 or more**
After graduating, I started teaching my friends and coworkers classes at home, in the park, and anywhere I could find some free space. I now teach one public class a week (Saturdays at 11 am), and private group lessons at apartments, neighborhood communites, and corporations.
I have had students brand new to yoga, as well as yogis with years of experience.
I would say to try as many teachers as you can until you find the ones that groove with you. Everyone has a different style, so you just have to search until you find a teacher/teachers that makes you feel comfortable and allows you to enjoy the beautiful journey of yoga!
