Jacqueline has been a student of yoga since 2000 when her mom, a body worker took her to her first yoga class in San Francisco, California. She knew right away that the physical practice offered her something she had never felt before, connection to everything!
In November 2009, she put her job as an Art Director and Designer in Singapore on hold to complete her first 200 hour teacher training with Absolute Yoga in Thailand. She has been teaching, studying and living into her practice ever since.
Over the next 7 years in Singapore she went on to complete 200+ hours in Anusara Immersions with Patrick Creelman, Amy Ippoliti and Ross Rayburn. After giving birth to her son in 2012 she completed another 100 hours certification in Mindful Birth for Pregnancy, Birth & Baby. Her playful and adventurous spirit also helped introduce her to the Dharma Yoga Wheel. She completed the Dharma Yoga Wheel Training with the founders Dov and Raquel and loves to work with her private clients on the wheel.
Through her own self-practice and meditation, she has come to realize that you can channel your deepest life intentions while also enjoying your life. "Take our practice serious, but not ourselves!"
Her classes are alignment and breath based, focusing on what the innate intelligence of the body can teach each student. Jacqueline has the ability to recognize that no student is the same and helps her students find joy and ease in what might otherwise seem like a very difficult situation. She uses the highest grade Essential Oils in many of her classes to heighten the sensory experience. She has studied in depth the healing effects of essential oils and teaches students how to incorporate them into their everyday life.
In addition to her regular classes, she also offers private yoga lessons, special community events, and leads workshops and retreats, where she can share and connect more with students of yoga.
