I have been practising yoga since my teens and have become more passionate about yoga as the years have progressed, it is truly engrained in my soul. I am passionate about many yoga styles and it is beautiful to see the diversity of students and practises they partake, I love the fact I get to guide students in their practise of both Aerial at Shakti studios and Bikram at Bikram Yoga Liverpool.
I first started my teaching journey teaching Bikram yoga in 2011 which I love, it is a very yang practise and I felt Bikram yoga had met its soul mate when I first took an aerial yoga class, as this is a very yin practise, so I found complete balance both with my practise and teaching, therefore had to bring aerial to Liverpool.
I am very excited that Shakti studious is the first aerial yoga studio in Liverpool, and love the freedom the hammock gives you, I find it very empowering and releasing and I am very grateful I get to teach Liverpool yogis to F.L.Y first love yourself.
Jacqueline Maguire is a master of holistic well-being from Liverpool.
She is a trained and practicing yoga teacher who has been traveling the world since she left her hometown when she was a teen. On her travels she gathered all her expertise and mastered the art of teaching yoga amongst many other things, such as Human Design, Shiatsu, Dancing with fire, meditation and much more.
She has been teaching yoga for over 20 years now and most of her training was obtained in India where she lived, whilst studying the authentic practice of yoga.
In 2006 Jacqui qualified as a professional Kids Yoga Teacher. For many years she was based in Austria where she taught kids yoga regularly at the local
Montessori Kindergarden as well as various other alternative schools in Austria.
Jacqui moved back to the UK in October 2014 to bring her gems back to her roots here in Liverpool.
She also has three children of her own and they are living proof of the benefits yoga has for children in their every day lives.
I've been practising yoga for over 25 years and teaching for the past 15. My initial experience was in the Iyengar tradition before enrolling on a BWY Diploma course with Rosemary Bennett. I'm also trained in Yoga Therapy with The Yoga Biomedical Trust based in London as well as being trained to teach the Yoga For Healthy Lower Backs course. Using yoga as a therapeutic tool is one of my great passions within this ever varying subject. My work in Yin Yoga includes taking many workshop with teachers such as Erin Fleming, Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. This summer I will also be taking up Yin Yoga training in a full weeek intensive in London with Paul Grilley. I'm very excited about this training and hope to pass on all my knowledge to my Yin students.
My belief is that we are all born Yogi. The key is to consciously release what is holding you back from living to your own potential. From my first time on the mat, I knew I was destined to teach, and my passion has grown every day since. I am a registered Yoga teacher, having trained at a school built on the principles of buddhism. My aim is to bring passion, enthusiasm and creativity to each class, encouraging my students to find their own yogic expression, with me as their guide. Every body is different, so by allowing the breath to be your navigator. Regardless of age, ability, or how far you have walked the yogic path, a regular yoga practice will help you on your journey of self discovery. My intention in each class is to create the perfect space for people to feel empowered, happy, and healthy :)
I also aim to take up my teacher training in aerial yoga later in the year and cannot wait to teach my students to F.L.Y
