ABOUT FLOWS BY JACQUELINE
Welcome to the Flows by Jacqueline community!
Yoga has many physical and mental benefits. It has been proven to increase bone density, mobility, flexibility and strength. It can also improve coordination, help relieve pain and stiffness and reduce stress. In my opinion, practicing yoga is one of the most accessible ways to become more mindful in our daily lives. As we tune in to the breath and notice our responses to physical and mental challenges in class, it gives us insights into how we respond to similar frustrations outside of yoga. I find that my practice helps me feel more connected to my body and mind, increases my awareness of movement and muscle engagement, and most importantly, helps me to stay grounded in the present moment.
Rolf Gates once said, "Yoga is not a work-out; it is a work-in." This is one of my favorite quotes about yoga. It reminds me that my yoga practice is an opportunity to check in with myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. I invite you to do the same as we flow together!
In my classes, I strive to create a safe and accessible environment for anyone who wishes to join. Anyone can practice yoga! Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com with questions or concerns. I would love to hear from you!
Why do yoga online?
You might be wondering, "well... why should I do yoga online instead of in a studio? Will I still get the full experience?"
The short answer is yes!
If you want the longer answer: every class has a coordinating playlist, a chance to talk with other participants and me (your instructor), and a clear focus for practice. While I love doing yoga in a studio, there are many benefits to creating a home practice. These are just a few:
1) You're comfortable - this is the #1 reason for me! Every aspect of your practice space can be to your liking. This is your special, self-care space you can come back to any time of day you need. You can use 5 blocks and 2 pillows at once. You can take up as much space as you want. And you don't have to worry about your neighbor accidentally dripping sweat on your mat!
2) The instructor is doing the flow with you, right in front of your nose! No more worries about having your view being blocked from the back row of class. If you have questions or concerns about poses or health restrictions, please email me and we can meet before class to do a short consultation!
3) Practice what you want, when you want. Sometimes it's great to be surprised by a yoga class flow! Other times, it's really wonderful to know exactly what is covered in class and focus on that. With On-Demand videos, you can pick what you need for your body at any time of day.
"I have taken a lot of yoga classes from many different teachers through the years and Jacqueline is by far my favorite. Her classes are really well put together, always have a good flow, and her overall instruction is hands down the best I have ever experienced. I can't recommend her enough."
"Jacqueline is a fabulous yoga teacher. Her instructions are very clear and her modifications make it easy for students of all levels to participate. Her classes are the best I’ve ever taken!"
"My husband and I have been regular participants in the Vinyasa classes for almost 2 years. Each class varies and is thoughtfully presented in a way that anyone with or without experience can participate. The health benefits and sense of well being we feel from doing yoga with Jacqueline make the classes definitely worth our time."
