“Jackie’s retreats have left me feeling energised and focused. The range of sessions and knowledge is diverse and I always experience something new. Nothing is ever a problem, a general over arching feeling of joy and kindness always seems to underpin these beautiful weekends. Thank you.”
“When you find a gem of a yoga teacher, you don’t need to go elsewhere. I was persuaded to try Jackie’s class over 10yrs ago when I already had my “regular” class and never left. She manages to fit in a strong flow, blended with lovely pranayamas and asanas, an average class restores body and soul. If you venture further and do a retreat your yoga is then stretched another level with a full holistic blend of practice and meditation. Jackie faces challenges with strength, blended with a deep calm, inspiring you to just stretch your boundaries a little bit more.”
“I recommend Jackie’s yoga classes to everyone. Jackie is fabulous and makes everyone feel at ease in class, even when the class is full of people on different levels, I never feel like anyone is competing or there’s any pressure, it’s your practice to do what you feel you need for yourself. I always feel re-energised and content after a class with Jackie. I’m very excited to be going on my first retreat later in the year.”
“Having practiced with many teachers over the years in different yoga traditions I always look forward to Jackie’s classes and retreats. She is an excellent teacher.Jackie is very welcoming and has a relaxed and engaging approach which allows each of us to work at our level of comfort and experience.She has a thorough knowledge of yoga rooted in tradition but carries this lightly. I enjoy the sessions and benefit that I get from at times being calm and relaxed, to at times having the more physical challenge of some of the postures.If you have never tried a Yoga Nidra session I would recommend giving it a go, and indeed any of Jackie’s classes.“
“Jackie’s weekly classes are an integral and essential part of my life and have been for several years now. Being able to switch off from the day, clear my mind and focus on just one thing – Yoga, is a joy. Having a calm, gracious and experienced yoga instructor in the form of Jackie is invaluable to help us reset the chaos in our minds and aches and pains in our ageing bodies!”
“I have been attending Jackie’s yoga sessions for many years now and am particularly impressed by the way she encourages participants to listen to their own individual bodies and minds, accepting that our feelings and flexibility can differ from one session to the next, and that we should not be afraid to adapt our practice to suit our individual needs. This demonstrates Jackie’s gift for leading a very holistic yoga practice with understanding and compassion, and a smidgen of humour!
“I attended one of Jackie’s yoga retreats in February, – I didn’t know what to expect, but I wasn’t disappointed. The venue and setting were lovely. The food was amazing, home cooked vegetarian, plentiful and delicious. Jackie had split each day into several different yoga sessions with the opportunity to try new techniques and different practices. Something for everyone with no pressure if you didn’t want to join in with every session. A totally relaxing environment, just what I needed, to escape for a couple of days with no one to think about but myself! I really felt like a new woman when I got home!”
“Jackie is a wonderful teacher and despite restrictions imposed by Covid regulations over the last year has managed to successfully run her yoga and relaxation sessions. Her clear and supportive teaching, even via Zoom, has enabled me to advance from complete beginner to attending stronger classes. Highly Recommended”.
“Jackie is a wonderful teacher. As I get older I find yoga increasingly important for maintaining my fitness flexibility, and being able to Zoom in during lockdown was a life-saver. I can’t wait to be able to go on another retreat. The place was beautiful, the food delicious, and being able to focus on yoga for a few days did wonders for my wellbeing.”
“Jackie is a wonderful yoga teacher – the perfect blend of body and soul.”
