“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.”
“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.“
“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. 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.”
“Wonderful retreat in a gorgeous characterful house. Lovely bedrooms and gardens. Log burner and places to sit peacefully throughout. The studio in contrast is ultra modern and bright, perfect for the yoga and meditation sessions. Wonderful short walk to the coast and the garden is full of flowers and birdsong. So that’s the setting now for the experience! Jackie is a lovely, warm, kind person with a strong intuition and experience in teaching yoga. This for me made the whole retreat, as much a spiritual one as a fantastic feeling of being in touch with my body. Would thoroughly recommend. Truly life changing.”
“I have been on several of Jackie’s Yoga Retreats – every single one was inspirational. Jackie is a truly warm and sensitive teacher, moulding her retreats to every person’s requirements. She aims all her classes from complete beginners through to advanced yogis with no pressure to be anywhere or do anything or than enjoy the magical ambience of her retreat. I never wanted the retreat to finish – always meeting interesting people, enjoying delicious food, having fun and learning more about yoga and at the same time chilling out – a time just to be! Teaching at it’s best – everyone needs some of Jackie in their lives!
“Jackie’s yoga retreats are amazing – truly energising and restorative! Jackie is a gifted and intuitive yoga practitioner, gently tapping into the individual needs of each in her class. Jackie’s passion for yoga coupled with her years of experience and breadth of knowledge means her retreats are varied, fulfilling and a joy to be part of.”
“Great, very well organised fun, always lovely food and good company, lovely surroundings, well worth doing great benefits, fantastic, enjoy!”
“I have been practising yoga with Jackie for about two and a half years now and highly recommend her and have recommended her. Jackie is amazing at what she does and caters for all abilities. She is patient, an excellent teacher and is authentic. When I finish a class with Jackie I feel strong and empowered. I have also had the pleasure of attending some retreats at Rosemerryn, a beautiful cottage and house set in Cornwall. The yoga classes here are incredible and the food is some of the best I’ve eaten. I always feel refreshed and healthier after one of Jackie’s retreats.
Jackie, you’re a wondeful human being. Om shanti.”
