“True Yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” – Aadil Palkhivala
'Jacqui creates and holds a gentle yet life giving energy in each and every class. She brings reverence, professionalism and deep understanding of the ageless art she practices. Her commitment to the depth of physical, mental and spiritual benefits of Gita yoga makes learning yoga rich and multi-layered.'Deborah W,
'I have been doing yoga with Jacqui on Saturday mornings for about 8 years. Thanks to yoga I have become, and remain, flexible, strong and agile. I call it my “church” because a group of regulars congregate weekly and Jacqui creates a peaceful, spiritual atmosphere. I appreciate Jacqui’s gentle, encouraging manner; there’s always an opportunity to learn more or keep it simple, depending on how you’re feeling on the day. This is not hot, sweaty, competitive yoga, this yoga is very much about finding inner peace and balance. I wholeheartedly recommend Jacqui’s classes to anyone wanting to do yoga.'Gina P,
'For the past 9 years I have been attending weekly yoga classes with Jacqui, as well as the occasional intensive workshop. Jacqui's teaching method is relaxed, inspirational and motivational, enriching and sustaining one spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. Her varied combination of asanas, meditation and relaxation feeds the whole person and encourages one to develop a deeper connection with oneself and with others. She imparts her experiential knowledge and her intuitive wisdom with unpretentious ease and grace which leaves one feeling uplifted and better able to manage the stresses of modern living. I feel deep and heartfelt gratitude for her teachings, her awareness and her openness.'Merion M,
