Jackie is a proud Jersey Girl who has been living in Atlanta for the past 24 years. She has been in the fitness industry since 1992, teaching spinning and aerobics. She discovered yoga after the birth of her 3rd child who was born with a neurological disorder. It gave her a peace that no other exercise could and taught her how to go through life one breath at a time. And sometimes those breaths need to be extra deep! Moving towards yoga was a natural progression in her journey, at first learning Iyengar yoga then moving into Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Yin. She received her 200 hour RYT Training through Ember Yoga with John Merideth in 2012. For Jackie yoga is all about the practice, not the perfection. It’s about allowing yourself to be where you are on a particular day and being okay with that. It’s knowing that you don’t have to nail a pose to be successful. It’s about accepting yourself for who you are, and remembering that yoga and life are journeys with ebbs and flows along the way. Through her teaching Jackie inspires her students to deepen their awareness of their self, their connection with their bodies, and helps to enrich their experiences on and off the mat. And why not listen to some great music and have some fun doing it!
