Jackie Howard is a 200 hour certified Akhanda 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 & Buddha Dharma. 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.
Rachel Labrie loves flowers and being outside. For the past five years she has delved into the plant world, learning all that she can about the plant beings that surround us. She believes deeply that herbalism and yoga are keys to a happy and healthy life, and loves to share the joy of herbs and their medicine. Her work has focused mainly outdoors in a variety of land stewardship positions including farm work, permaculture inspired gardening, homesteading, and residential garden maintenance. Earth Care and People Care is the core of her life’s work and purpose. She co-manages the Great Falls Apple Corps, and can be found in the gardens by the River.
About Great Falls Apple Corps
The Great Falls Apple Corps was founded in the Fall of 2017 to help neighbors in Turners Falls join together to support our community through food, fun, and fresh air. We harvest and distribute free food grown downtown, host workshops to learn new skills, and support community gardening. We are in our second year coordinating the Unity Park Community Garden, supporting the coordination of the downtown planters, and identifying public and private lots in the downtown area for edible plantings.
