About Jacqueline

Jacqueline Is a Mindfulness Meditation teacher, Yoga teacher, Yoga Therapist, and certified Holistic Health Coach in Lafayette Indiana.  She has spent over a year in silent meditation retreat practice and many more years in long term Mindfulness meditation and Yoga study programs.

She has been practicing Yoga in some form or another since she was a small girl. Her interest and love for Yoga, meditation, and overall health were planted in her heart for as long as she can remember.  At a very early age she was doing Yoga asana (postures), handstands, balances and back bends.  At that time she was unaware of them as being Yoga asana, but her love of going upside down continues today.

Jacqueline has a deep yearning for spirituality which, began in her early childhood years growing up in a large Catholic family.  Jacqueline’s  journey has led her to study many different beliefs and philosophies. She began studying Contemplative Meditation through the writings of Thomas Merton, Anthony De Mello, and Thomas Keating.  She attended various three and four day silent retreats through the Catholic Faith: Thomas Merton’s Monastic community the Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, Kentucky; The Dominican house in Northern Virginia; and the Holy Cross Abbey in Berryville, VA with the Trappist Monks. These teachings inspired a desire to study the ancient Asian beliefs which, began over 20 years ago. The yearning for deeper exploration, and discovery has led her to India several times to study Mindfulness Meditation, Yoga, and Ayurveda.  She enjoys traveling the world, learning and growing from her own experiences, and the knowledge she gains from her various teachers.

She continues to study and embrace the teachings of  Vipassana “Insight” or Mindfulness meditation, and the ancient Asian teachings.

Jacqueline’s eclectic and fun approach to teaching is colored by the knowledge she has gained from her years of practice and studies. She has had the blessing of studying with a vast array of remarkable and diverse teachers. These teachings along with her years of traveling the world will guide her students on a unique journey of self-exploration, inner awareness, and appreciation for the unique gifts, which are lying deep within each of us waiting to be released!  Her deepest desire is to bring the teachings of Mindfulness “Insight” mediation, and  Yoga Therapy to people who are suffering from dis-ease of body, mind, and spirit!  She continues to develop herself through her practices and studies.
