Hello, I’m Jacqueline.
With more than 17 years’ experience as an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga teacher I weave my knowledge of these ancient sciences with modern techniques, combined with my deep intuition, to support, guide and mentor my clients into deep healing on all levels of their being.
I was blessed to find my calling and be introduced to Ayurveda early in my life. Through my early 20’s I studied my 4 year Advanced Diploma of Ayurveda.
This study helped to hone my inner awareness and intuition and join the dots between how my thoughts, choices and habits impacted my health and wellbeing. During my studies I also completed my Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training and was successfully assessed to become a Yoga Teacher.
On finishing my studies I yearned to travel, and seek more clinical experience so, I headed to India! If you would like to read more about how I found Ayurveda click here.
Since then I have been to India three times for further Ayurvedic training and Yoga studies.
Fast forward some years (well quite a few!), and I am now the Mother of two teenagers!
I discovered through this busy and beautiful time with my young family that simply knowing Ayurveda was not enough to prevent me from slipping into a state of depletion and an early Menopause.
It is how we live, the little things we do each day that will, over time, build us up or wear us down; and I was giving out way too much of myself! You can read about my rollercoaster Menopause journey in my blog here.
Luckily, I was able to recognise what had happened and knew how to start on my path of rebalancing and healing.
Since this time of depletion and hormone imbalance, my calling has been fine-tuned by my own experience to focus on Women’s Health and Vitality.
Over the last 6 years I have had the privilege of working with the world renowned Women’s Health teacher and author Dr Claudia Welch. Completing 5 of her Mentorship Trainings has been both a balm to my soul and has greatly informed my practice and how I can support other women.
As a mum and business owner I know how full live can be and how easy it is to put ourselves last as we care for everything else!
My heart’s calling is to help women create space for themselves in their lives to nourish their nervous system, balance their hormones naturally and connect to their feminine vitality so they have more energy, health, joy and ease in their lives.
Working with me you’ll learn how to know your body deeply so you can understand your changing needs through the different stages of life. I’ll share how to live in a conscious and loving relationship with your body to build your intuition and vitality.
I welcome and witness you as you are and provide a safe, compassionate, non-judgemental and nurturing space for you to unfold into your healing.
My work involves individual consulting and mentoring. I offer my Feminine Vitality Yoga and Ayurveda Retreats each Autumn and Spring in the Adelaide Hills; teach workshops, and run my nine week live online Embodied Wisdom Course for supporting women to understand their bodies better and create balanced living and balanced hormones.
I’m also available for speaking at events.
I love working with the new generation of Women who are ready to reclaim their innate wisdom and health!
Women who are ready to say ‘Yes!’ to themselves! Women who are ready to break down old patterns of overdoing or false beliefs of unworthiness, and leave overwhelm behind to live with more ease, energy and purpose.
It is my Dharma to help other’s on their path to deeper health and awakened consciousness and do my little part in raising the consciousness of humanity to support and heal the Earth we live on and with.
I give thanks to all of my teachers who have helped me on my path: Dr. Krishna Kumar and Professor Michael Junius, who started me on the Ayurvedic path; Dr Pankaj Patil and Dr Claudia Welch. And, last but not least, to my family, who encourage me to be constantly aware and evolving.
When I am not working you just might find me hanging with my family, walking in nature, enjoying camping holidays, singing, practising yoga or delving into a good novel!
