Our awesome team of instructors & staff
Jackie is our Yoga instructor and she did her teacher training at Yogayama in Stockholm (200H Hatha Yoga, 50H Yin Yoga). She continuously educates herself through retreats (now lately in India and Australia), workshops and books about both Yoga and meditation.When not teaching Yoga at SPR, she works as a freelance dancer in both Sweden and all over the world, educated at The Ballet Academy’s 3-year professional program in Stockholm. She’s been in several productions and musicals, dancing behind artists such as Molly Sandén, Pernilla Wahlgren, Pet Shop Boys to name a few and you can sometimes see her in TV-productions. Most recently, ‘Sweden Got Talent’ competing with a dance group called “Stockholm Higheelers” (they reached the Semi-Finals).
From her career as a dancer, she knows how to deal with injuries, pain, and sore muscles and has found Yoga to be a great complement to her life - keeping her both strong, flexible and grounded. Both in body and mind.
She wants her Yoga classes at SPR to be a complement to your life too, helping you achieve your goals in other areas of your life - such as your power conditioning workouts, lifting, BJJ-training, being able to play with your children on the floor without feeling too stiff - you name it! So enter the Yoga room to stretch, strengthen and alleviate your body (and mind) and to be the best possible in your everyday life.
Yoga, in the western world, is misunderstood to only be about flexibility in the muscles. It is so much more and what most people miss is that it is a lot about breathing, which is something you can benefit from in all aspects of life, whenever during your day.
