Our teachers are amazing and have such a wide range of experiences and strengths.  Some, like Jackie Leftwich, have gotten the chance to teach and practice in other countries.  She currently teaches in Boston.  With digital tools, she’s able to reach our entire community and beyond.

What is your inspiration for teaching?

“My Higher Power and my students happy smiling faces.”

What is the one important lesson quarantine has taught you?

“That even in difficult times we can get happier and healthier.”

What is your advice for practicing at home?

“Take it easy, honey.”

What have you learned about teaching online?

It’s fun and challenging in new ways. It lets me to continue to be a part of helping people make their lives better one posture at a time.  I’ve always wanted to sit on the shoulder of more experienced teachers while she/he teaches a class and see what they see and correct. Now thanks to Zoom I can do this.
Any other thoughts or words of wisdom?

Nothing is more important than taking care of your health right now.  By continuing to practice your yoga you are doing what you can to stay healthy. My final piece of motherly advice is eat your vegetables & take vitamin D.
