Jacquline’s passion has been appreciating the benefits of a holistic approached to life through diet and physical activities and the positive impact they have on managing pain. She’s gradually began her journey to manage her sometimes crippling condition, Fibroids and Endometriosis. Exploring and learning about the benefits of Yoga practices and life style, while expanding her knowledge of highly nutritious Bio available foods.
Over the last 30 years, she has learnt through her own body, the importance of a holistic consideration to health and well-being, and continues to have an avid interest in health & nutrition. Turning to Vegetarianism over 35 years ago, she has learnt to explore new ways to improve health through nutritious foods; her growing knowledge of nutrition and wonderful tasting food is still a lifelong passion that she continues to share through Yoga and Ayurveda workshops.
Whilst having been a Yoga practitioner for many years, she gradually began to embrace the full spectrum of Yoga teachings. Coming from a corporate demanding background, requiring you to constantly move on to the next ‘New thing’ the practice of Yoga ‘creating space’ and ‘allowing’ while ‘being present’ was and still is a very powerful lesson for her, both on and off the mat! Overtime there has been a gradual realization that her practice has contributed to managing her condition and has been a life-long lesson in how to mentally and physical deal with life’s ongoing challenges.
In Sanskrit ‘Akhanda’ means ‘whole’ or ‘indivisible’ and encompasses divers’ aspects of Yoga practice including Asana, Pranayama Meditation, Mantra and Visualization.

As an Akhanda Yoga, Yin Yoga and Face Yoga teacher, it is her desire to hold the space for others to explore Yoga practice, to finding inner peace strength and tranquility to fully express themselves in the world.
