Jackie is the best yoga instructor I have ever worked with, she is an expert in her field. She focuses on a deep yoga experience that emphasizes both the inner and outer journey. She incorporates different types of yoga into her classes (vinyasa/yin/therapeutic) so I'm always learning something new about the practice, my body and myself.   Jackie  is knowledgeable and practiced in many healing modalities. 
A private yoga session may include chakra healing, breathing techniques, therapeutic yoga, meditations, mantras, or sound bowls. I always leave feeling a sense of self-acceptance, self-knowledge, and  new possibility.   Recommending Jackie to a friend makes me feel like I am giving that friend a special gift — the gift of working with a healer whose teachings and presence are transformational. 

Marcelle Soveiro- Student

“Jackie was my first yoga teacher.  When I attended my first class with her close to thirteen years ago, it was in a difficult place in my life. Having recently lost my Mother to cancer and trying to cope with every day life, I was trying to find some sort of peace and stability. Jackie helped me find that.  I enjoyed her classes so much that I've continued to practice yoga over the last 12+ years.  Her classes were relaxing and challenging at the same time and she always incorporated different aspects of yoga into each class.  I was saddened when Jackie and her family moved to CT but I also knew that she would be successful wherever she was and would inspire more people like she inspired me to live and love yoga!” 

Laura Barlow - Student

"Jackie brings care and love to her teaching. Her classes have wonderful variety and are always fun. She provides just the right amount of physical challenge, and always has creative options for deepening or modifying poses to be appropriate for a wide range of students. But it is her authentic presence, open heart, and desire to share what she has learned, that make Jackie such a special teacher.” 

Ann Jones - Ten year student

"I practiced yoga with Jackie for more than ten years. Her style is so fluid and harmonious that you "feel" the poses she presents without even having to "think" about them. Her gentle touch and voice enable you to completely lose all track of the outside world while you are practicing. I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of her classes!”

Fall Nature Retreat Weekend: Living from the Heart

September 18, 2020

Living From The Heart
Weekend Nature Retreat

326 Hanks Rd. Troy, PA (Bradford County)
Friday September 18-20.
Begins promptly at 7 pm Friday night - noon Sunday.

The Ancients believed that the heart was the home of the lotus flower and within it dwelled the Soul. The heart has intelligence and knows things that the head cannot know – it has a knowing beyond logic. The heart is rooted in deep wisdom. There is a part of you that knows everything, since at the deepest level you are everything. When you allow yourself to listen to and live from your heart it will guide you on the right path.

The stress, anxiety and craziness we feel often happens because we are stuck in our heads. There is often a gap between what the head and heart says. When we follow only our heads, we suffer. To go against your heart’s knowing is to betray yourself. And it leads to pain.

Living with your head running the show leads to a safe life, where you compromise who you are, living the way you think you are supposed to, not what is authentic and passionate for you.

Relax and rejuvenate as we connect with nature and experience being in our heart centers. We will immerse ourselves in activities such as hiking, meditation, Yoga, star gazing and much more in the serenity and transformative power of nature. Saturday night is our campfire with hot apple cider in a cauldron over the fire and drumming circle.

Located in scenic West Burlington, between Troy and Towanda, with views of the Blue Ridge Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania nestled between the Finger Lakes region and the Poconos Mountains.
