Jacci Collins | View Full Profile »

Jacci’s journey in yoga began over 14 years ago when she sought out Ashtanga yoga as an alternate form of training for her career as a professional dancer. Once on the mat, she discovered that yoga was not only the perfect way to balance out the body’s strengths and weaknesses, but it also left her feeling peaceful and at ease. As her awareness grew she was able to manage chronic injuries left in her body from a career in dance. She even averted pending low-back surgery by committing to a steady and mindful yoga practice. She remains constantly humbled by how deep this practice can penetrate. A firm believer in the body-mind connection, she encourages her students to move away from the ego and into the true self. She is currently teaching hatha, flow and vinyasa yoga throughout Vancouver. Her classes emphasize a strong awareness of physicality along with self-acceptance and trust in the innate intelligence of the body. Jacci is a registered yoga teacher (RYT200) as well as a registered teacher trainer (E-RYT200) and has proudly been teaching yoga to all ages and abilities since 2004.
