Jackie has been teaching yoga for almost ten years now. She'll never forget what her yoga teacher said after taking her very first yoga class at the Montessori school she used to teach at. Jackie asked why she became a yoga teacher and she responded "once I started doing yoga, everything in my life became better." That made Jackie curious about how this magical yoga could do such a thing, so she started taking classes and soon found out what her teacher meant. Jackie's journey to equanimity began as her life improved mentally, physically and spiritually encouraging her to continue her yoga practice and studies. She recieved her RYT200 through Laurel Hodory and has taken several workshops and additional trainings so that she can share the wonders of yoga with others. She enjoys working with all ages and likes connecting with the middle school age group in particular because she recognizes the importance of individual expression, connection and support especially needed during those vital years. She is highly influenced by Coco (Connection Coalition formerly known as Yoga Gangsters) and is passionate about collaborating with youth organizations to provide tools that help calm the nervous system and allow better decision making like yoga, meditation and mindfulness. These tools have personally helped her creative career and production of Yogi Monsters, a series about awesomely zen characters that inspire positive and powerful possibilities. She looks forward to meeting more awesome people to find more zen with.
