Jackie JJC Yoga
Teaching PEOPLE, Not Postures
Welcome to Jackie JJC Yoga!
I am passionate about making yoga accessible to all, believing it to be for Everybody and Every Body.
If you’ve ever felt that you would benefit from improving your posture, finding a deeper way of breathing, and generally calming your mind, then this is the place for you.
I also believe that we all need different styles of yoga at different times. Therefore, I teach a variety of styles, currently offering the following group classes:
Stretch & Relax
Beginners' Yoga Courses
Whatever the style, I suggest options and modifications throughout all classes. By working with the breath, you can adapt the postures to your individual needs, ensuring that you gain the full benefit of yoga.
Yoga is non-competitive and the transition to online classes due to Covid restrictions has completely removed all comparisons, yet still creates a feeling of connection – so important in these times when we have to maintain social-distancing.
More About Jackie
I have practiced yoga for over 25 years, taking classes in a number of different styles. I credit yoga with helping me through the many changes that life brings: giving time for myself, time to still my mind.
I hold the 500-hour British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Diploma in Teaching Yoga (a nationally-recognised Level 4 qualification), the BWY 40-hour module in Teaching Chair Yoga and am qualified in Teaching Restorative Yoga. I have also attended additional shorter trainings including teaching Accessible Yoga, Yoga for Dementia, Yoga for Cancer, Teaching Pregnant Students in a General Class, and Yoga for CFS, Burnout & Long Covid. I continue to deepen my knowledge via workshops and further trainings.
I have certification in the following courses: Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults (Level 1), Standard Safeguarding Adults with Dementia, Introduction to Safeguarding Children (Level 1), and Emergency First Aid at Work.
Since undertaking the BWY Foundation Course in 2013-2014, the writings of Desikachar have influenced my personal practice and, subsequently, my approach to teaching.
My previous career spanned 38 years in the corporate world, with over two decades in the demanding environment of administration within the financial industry. I therefore know first-hand how yoga can aid in managing and reducing levels of stress, as well as help with focus and concentration.
I am a Registered and Certified Yoga Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), a Registered Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals (YAP), and a Practitioner Member of The Society of Yoga Practitioners (TSYP).
