Jacqui teaches Iyengar Yoga


Yoga has been part of Jacqui’s life for over 30 years, initially complimenting her training in dance. She appreciates her regular time on the mat as a way of coming home to herself; time to engage experientially with the notion of balance both in yoga practice and in daily life.


Under the guidance of senior Iyengar teacher Peter Thomson, Jacqui completed Introductory Level I and II Iyengar Yoga teacher training. She has studied at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India, and has attended workshops in Australia taught by members of the Iyengar family, most recently with Abhijata Iyengar. Jacqui continues to attend classes with senior Iyengar teachers.


Jacqui strives to teach in a way that honours the rigour of Iyengar yoga. This tradition emphasises precision of alignment and sequencing as a way of developing our perception, our ability to make conscious decisions, and to notice the effect of those decisions.

Her approach is centred on a recognition that each student has different and changing needs.
