Jackie Howard is a 200 hour certified Akhanda (Holistic) Yoga teacher. She completed her training at Anand Prakash Ashram in Rishikesh India under the loving guidance of her teacher Yogrishi Vishvketu-ji. In addition to her Hatha Yoga training she is also a student of Bhakti Yoga in the Vaisnava tradition. Her approach draws from the idea that yoga is more of a ‘work-in’ than a ‘work-out’. Although a flexible body has many benefits, it’s ultimately the flexibility of the mind & the openness of the heart that will allow us to expand and grow infinitely in the journey of yoga. Jackie feels to be an effective teacher you must also be a dedicated student, she continues her training in the Akhanda, Bhakti & Sivananda traditions hoping to bring herself & students closer to our true nature, which is loving, compassionate & kind.
