Jackie JJC Yoga

Teaching PEOPLE, Not Postures.

If you’re looking to improve your posture, move with more ease, have better quality of sleep and reduce your stress levels, then this is the place for you. I am committed to making yoga accessible to Everybody and Every Body. The focus of every class is how the practice makes you FEEL.

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 calming your mind, then I have a class for you.

We all need different style of yoga at different times, so teach a variety of classes. In all classes, I suggest options throughout, encouraging you to gain the full benefit of each posture by finding the variation that best suits your individual needs.

I have practiced yoga for over 20 years taking classes in many different traditions.

Since undertaking the BWY Foundation Course in 2013-2014, the writings of Desikachar have influenced my personal practice and, subsequently, my approach to teaching where yoga is adapted to how each person feels at the time.

My previous career spanned 38 year 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.

My Classes

I teach in English and always explain any Sanskrit used.

I explain why we are practising a particular posture, using easy-to-understand language.

I offer options for postures throughout the class and you are encouraged to find the variation that suits your own unique body. You are always free to take a break at any time in a class. I never push or pull anyone into a position. From time-to-time I do offer hands-on adjustments but will always explain exactly what I suggest with help and ask permission to proceed. You then need to actively agree before I continue. And if you don’t want this, then you are equally at liberty to say no – I won’t be upset or offended.

I teach some basic breathing exercises but, as with the physical practice, there is no compulsion to join in. I introduce aspects of yoga philosophy in a way that is relevant to our modern world.

Classes end with Savasana (total rest). This is a vital part of the class, allowing the practice to fully integrate in the body and mind. You can also expect me to muddle up my left and right at some point and to lose count of how many repetitions we have done but let’s not tell anyone!!

Testimonials

Thank you, Jackie! I feel taller ... and warmer!!”

Hi Jackie. A huge thanks for today’s exercises and stretches. Last couple of days my posture at the desk must have been bad. After the class today my right arm and shoulder has loosened and feels great. At the start I was a bit stiff. Thank you, thank you. Happy and stretched lady. See you tomorrow. Midas classes
