Jacqui has studied movement through dance since childhood. She has been stretching, twisting, binding and playing with the physical form for years and believes “the juice is worth the squeeze“.

"Yoga has given me so much, and continues to generously keep the lessons flowing. As a teacher I love being able to introduce this exquisite way of growth and evolution to those that I have the privilege of meeting.

I have experimented with many different styles and have studied under a number of teachers who have touched me deeply. My personal journey has allowed me the honor of assisting and learning through my mentor, Lauren Slater and I am so grateful for her unwavering belief in me.I hope to bring healing to your body and soul through an exploration of breathe, mind and and body awareness.

My hands-on approach to adjusting is a way of connecting and feeling rather than thinking and analyzing, so you may be lucky enough to enjoy some yoga massage while sweating your way through my class.

I teach a vinyasa flow and a mellow flow class, both with strong emphasis on alignment and moving mindfully with your body to connect deeply to what you may be feeling physically, mentally and emotionally. When we start to become familiar with our “quit points” is when growth and achievements begin to happen, the result being that you expand your practice on the mat and your inner light shines brighter.

My mission to you is to do my best to be as inspiring as I have been inspired.

May you walk in beauty and I look forward to seeing you in class."
