Meet Jackie Clarke
Principal Yoga Teacher
I’ve been teaching yoga full-time since 1996, and have experienced immense pleasure from teaching hundreds of people of all ages and levels of ability. After school, I studied Human Movement and Psychology at UWA. Instead of very nearly becoming an Exercise Physiologist or Psychologist I’ve ended up a Yoga Teacher which is a combination of the two fields.
When people ask “what style of yoga do you teach?” my answer is, “no single particular style – just a fusion of yoga styles, modern exercise physiology and health psychology. My preferences and influences are mainly from Iyengar Yoga, Dru Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Pilates and Mindfulness Meditation.”
It’s okay if you have injuries as some exercises will be very helpful, and some you will avoid or modify. Don’t worry too much about which class you should come to. Just choose a time that suits, and come along. I cater for all levels of ability. I emphasize to work safely within your own level, to focus on how the exercise makes you feel rather than whether you’re good at it or not, and to enjoy yourself.
There are 3 classes in Dunsborough at the Naturaliste Community Centre, and 8 classes at my studio in Busselton.
