Jackie JJC Yoga
Yoga For Everybody
Greatly influenced by the writings of T.K.V. Desikachar, she is passionate about making yoga accessible to all, working with the breath and adapting postures to the individual's needs by providing options and modifications throughout all classes.
I have practiced yoga for over 20 years, taking classes in many different styles, and credit it with helping me through the many changes that life brings: giving time for myself; time to still my mind.
In 2014 I completed the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Foundation Course Level 1, studying with Lisa Soede. This course took my interest and love of yoga to a new level.
After a long career in the demanding world of administration within the financial industry, in 2017 I was in a position to start training to teach yoga. I enrolled on the BWY Diploma Course in Teacher Training (a nationally-recognised Level 4 qualification) again tutored by Lisa Soede. Having passed the necessary stages to be able to teach under the BWY banner, I am continuing my studies both on the Diploma Course and via workshops to deepen my knowledge and understanding, aiming to bring the benefits of yoga to others.
Yoga is non-competitive and has a positive effect on the body, mind and spirit.
By working with the breath, learn how to mobilise your body, increasing strength, stamina and flexibility, whilst calming the mind.
Many people find that a regular yoga practice lowers stress and aids relaxation.
