"Jackie, thank you so much for leading my yoga practice. It helps me so much. My neuropathy is so much better after our sessions. I also have scoliosis, osteoporosis, and possibly Parkinson's, as well as tension in my shoulder and back, so yoga practice helps with all my symptoms. Yoga resonates with my spirituality. I think of G-d as all the Energy and Love in the Universe, that grounds and surrounds and connects us. We bring that to each other when we practice yoga. So, thank you for all that you do!"
"Jackie you are clear and concise, heart centred, helpful, sensitive and flexible to the needs of those in your care. Thank you for a beautiful and meaningful practice."
