Jacqualine was introduced to yoga when a friend from work invited her to a yoga class that took place in a heated room. After falling in love with the way yoga made her feel, a desire to learn different asana, pranayama and the philosophy of yoga developed, and led her to India in 2005, where she studied Akhanda (Holistic) yoga with Yogi Vishvketu and Chetana Panwar.
After graduating, Jacqualine returned to Canada and in 2010 opened Jaya Yoga Centre. She incorporates Meditation, Pranayam and Asana in her classes so that students have an enriching experience on their mats and feel a deep sense of balance that they can take with them into their daily personal lives. In 2015, she released her first 3 recorded Guided Meditation CD’s, which are based on her Meditation classes. She has just released her 5th recording in 2017. Jacqualine offers a “by donation” Guided Meditation class to the Community the last Sunday of every month at Jaya Yoga Centre. Everyone is welcome! No experience is necessary.

Jaya is the Sanskrit word for “Victory!” Her hope is that all students of yoga find Victory in their practice and in the healing they are searching for.
