yoga teacher | ayurvedic healer | london


Namaste. Welcome to my yoga world!

Hello! I'm Jacqui, a yoga teacher in south London. I teach a grounded yet flowing class where we move with grace, breathe with ease, find the stillness within, seek the truth of our Self, and smile! I believe yoga is not complete without meditation, to seek the core of who we are, our true nature of bliss and love. I'm also an experienced Ayurvedic health coach.

In early 2019 I'll be teaching yoga classes in south and central London, and yoga and Ayurveda workshops. Currently I teach private yoga and meditation lessons (individuals, private groups, corporate groups, six-week courses) to teach beginners, level 1 and level 1–2.

about jacqui

I trained as a yoga teacher on triyoga’s two-year, 390-hours diploma, studying under Carlos Pomeda, Jeff Phenix and Susannah Hoffman. The training is accredited by British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance. I teach a flowing form of hatha yoga, blending postures that develop stillness, strength and grounding with flowing, graceful movements that develop flexibility, ease and lightness in the body. This physical aspect is combined with meditation and philosophy from Shaiva tantra with elements of shakta tantra and classical yoga. I love the different yoga traditions, their fascinating history and texts and the wisdom contained in them. I hope to share some of their teachings and my enthusiasm with you.

I qualified in Ayurveda in 2008. I trained for two years with Vaidya Atreya Smith of the EIVS and Dr Sunil V Joshi of Nagpur, India, and worked as a practitioner part-time for seven years, alongside my career as a journalist. I’m 56 and have practised and studied yoga for 18 years, and I’m a born-and-bred Londoner.
