Under Jackie’s enthusiastic and encouraging instruction, I was able to reach new depths in my yoga practice, with an improved technique, strength, and flexibility. It was under her tutelage that I was able to move into more advanced inversions. Further, Jackie was able to make each class enjoyable and different by introducing new poses, flowing sequences, and opportunities for growth. She brought a calming and happy tone to her classes, and making the time to assist and encourage each individual participant’s own needs for their practice. After one particularly glorious class, I was in such a calm state that I walked almost two blocks home before I realized that I wasn’t wearing my glasses.
