ABOUT

I want you to know that I think you are perfect, just the way you are. I think that we can fight so hard to be more than. I think we are enough. I think that as soon as we allow ourselves to be just as we are we soften, that soft also means expansive, that taking up space is a good thing.  You have a body that is your sacred ground, and it’s time we get more comfortable there. Your imperfections, scars and injuries aren’t something to hide away, they are to be brought into the conversation, and in fact I would say they are the conversation.  They are life speaking to you in its oldest language though our most intimate companion, our bodies. It’s time to reclaim the body, reclaim our sacred ground, to move it, hold it, dance with it, listen to it and  grieve with it, maybe even allow ourselves to LOVE it. I think it’s time to end the war, to set down our sharp knives and begin planting seeds, to give our energy to what makes us sing because there will be no better time and you will not be more ready. I want you to know that I think you are worth it. You are worth your attention. You are worth the sun and the moon because you just can’t stop orbiting. You are worth kisses on the hand, with a squeeze. You are worth the trouble, the pain, angst and ridiculousness.  You are worth the ride, and the ride is just waiting in anticipation for you to get over the ‘why you’re not good enough’ and hop on already.  I think it is time to start a revolution and sink deep into our own arms and discover that who we were looking for, has been there the whole damn time. 

 

Jacqui has been a teacher in the Vancouver community since 2011. Teaching has been a love affair of her two main passions, the marriage of the physical and energetic body, both of which she has extensive knowledge of. She has been studying and practicing energy work for over 10 years and danced professionally for years before that. Right now her practice is about honesty, focus and softening. She is the proud mother of two beautiful children and advocates body positivity in women and girls.

 

Jacqui offers private energy healing sessions, public yoga classes and one on one yoga therapy/ coaching

Eat or be eaten

Say yes to life, even though you know it will devour you. Because among the obstacles and, to be sure, the cruelties of life are signs that we are on a primary spiritual adventure (even though it seems to be taking place in what we......

how do you live?

How do you live? Do you sneak glances under your eyelashes? Do you strip off naked and charge into the  night? Do you tie your laces just so, and tread silently forward? Do you question why? Do you honor? Do you pray? How do you......

It starts with a poem

It starts with a question, what are you longing to know? And who? Ask away. The practice is to remember how to listen. Bring your ear close to the ground and quiet yourself. Something is moving, as it always is. We can find a million......

mirrors and windows

A few thoughts on eating disorders, I have been sitting on this piece for a month or so, it’s imperfectly perfect and personally a vulnerable subject to share. Mirrors: these days I try not to make a big deal out of how I’m looking. I......

mountains and valleys

I find myself still after all this time clinging to the idea that one day I will have this life thing figured out, I will reach the pinnacle of my own personal mountain, sit down, and enjoy the view. Doesn’t that sound nice! I’m at......

Pro-cess

I am going through a process here, a PRO-CESS. I am in the jaws of a lion and she is taking no shit. I get it- kind of, the ferocity of her dedication. And I feel helpless, like a person drowning but loving the water.......

Service and burnout

Do you care deeply about other people? Do you sometimes invest your heart in places it doesn’t belong or create unbalanced relationships where you only exist to be the giver? You are not alone. I’m interested in cultivating right relationship with giving, and looking honestly at......

setting down stones

Yesterday it happened, something I have heard about and have witnessed but have never personally experienced. I cried on my yoga mat. As I stepped up to practice that day, I found my feet solid under my hips, and began. I knew I was coming......

The Art of doing nothing.

Firstly I admit, I suck at doing nothing, truly. Which isn’t to say that I’m always productive, I would say that much of the time I am not. It’s all too easy to fill the moments with ‘important’ tasks, before I can sit, or god......
