In 2009 Jackie began her yoga journey immediately after graduating from high school. Yoga opened up her eyes to a whole new world. A world of self-love, compassion, peace, inspiration, and true identity. Knowing that her calling would be to inspire others to live a health conscious lifestyle, she chose to pursue a career as a yoga and fitness instructor. In 2010 she received her 200hr Yoga teacher training certification from Chula Vista Yoga Center. Later in 2014, she graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, certifying her as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. She then completed another 300hr yoga teacher training in India, becoming a 500E-RYT. Jackie is also certified to teach yoga sculpt, SUP yoga, and is a lead instructor in Yoga Teacher Trainings. Currently pursuing a certification as a Holistic Nutrition Consultant, Jackie aims to educate people about the importance of combining the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, with a mindful and wholesome diet so we can all feel and live at our optimal best!
