Jackie came to yoga several years ago looking for a new way to manage stress and find more flexibility in the body. As she continued practicing, she noticed that yoga has the power to transform one’s mind, body, and spirit. With a continued interest in the mind-body connection, Jackie is pursing a doctorate in psychology at the University of Iowa. After 6 years of practicing various forms of yoga, meditation and various breathing techniques she wanted to deepen her practice by completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training at YOUnique Yoga in Indiana. Jackie’s philosophy of yoga involves finding freedom in the body and mind through a comprehensive practice the balances challenging physical poses with restorative poses, mediation and various breath techniques.
Heartland Yoga has been Jackie’s “yoga home base” for several years and she’s thrilled to have the opportunity to pass on the bliss and freedom that she found in her own practice here. Jackie offers a Vinyasa Restorative Flow style class that help you more smoothly transition into your week.
What is Vinyasa Restorative Flow? The first half of class will be an inspiring vinyasa slow-flow
that will build on traditional Sun Salutations. Modifications will be offered, and creating your own flow, at your own pace (I.e. skipping plank, cobra, etc. in favor of something more nurturing for your own body) will be encouraged. This will prepare us for the second half of class, where we’ll settle into stillness, using supportive props for maximum relaxation. An eclectic mix of meditation, mudras, and breath work will also still be included.
Who is this class for? This class is well suited for anyone interested in a well-balanced, 75-minute retreat, with openness to a physical and mental challenge. This class will leave you feeling like you accomplished a sufficient physical practice, while also feeling rested, refreshed and focused to smoothly transition into your week.
