Jacqui is the Director of the 200hr & 300hr Sacred Seeds Yoga Schools/Certifications, Owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in MA since 2011 and the mastermind behind the life changing course “The Apprenticeship” for Yoga teachers and students. Jacqui is a philanthropist. She has worked hard, along with her treasured Yoga team, to raise over $400,000, one downward dog at a time, for various different charities. She is the only 9 time New England (NE) presenter at Yoga Reaches Out/ Gillette Stadium annually and a regular guest faculty at The Kripalu Center for Healing in Lenox, MA.

She is grateful to Rolf Gates, Johnny Gillespie, David Vendetti, Pat Iyer, her Mother, family, friends, and really, the entire planet for lighting her light.
