Hi yoga friends!
I hope this message finds you well. I’m happy to announce I have returned to Panama after my 6 month trip away. I am so excited to get back into the flow of teaching yoga and connecting with wonderful people like yourself. 
While I was gone I took advantage of the time to study and deepen my craft. I trained with a Master Energy Worker in Philly and became a Certified Advance Level Integrated Energy Therapist. This means I still remove issues from the tissues and heal emotional trauma, but the advanced level gave me valuable tools on how to manifest dreams and help people realize their souls purpose. 
I continued along my journey in my 500 Hour Yoga Medicine Training by participating in an orthopedic module in NYC. I spent 25 hours studying the spine in depth and studied the anatomy, biomechanics, disfunction, and common injuries. The training was extremely informative and not only affected the way I teach now, but changed the way I live and move throughout my life.
Finally I spent a lot of time at a farm cooperative in Pennsylvania learning from local farmers, growing food, and working with animals. I also participated in a soap making course in West Virginia where I learned to make my own natural soaps to give on yoga retreats.
I am so looking forward to teaching and relaying this amazing information to you. Everything I learn in the USA is with the intention to share that meaningful knowledge with my special yoginis and yogis in Panama.
I will be resuming my Monday 6pm Rooftop yoga class at the American Trade Hall starting Monday December 19th 2015. Thank you to Ani for teaching while I was gone and to the yogis that keep attending. I know we love Ani so she will still be coming to assist and substitute classes from time to time.
Now for some very exciting news…I will be hosting a New Years Yoga Retreat from December 30th to January 5th in El Cope, Panama! The venue is a spectacular Ecohome set on a 17 acre property surrounded by mountains, reforested trees, 2 rivers, natural waterfalls, and farmland. Enjoy New Years Eve & Day celebrations, tour a cloud forest national park, journery to 3 famous waterfalls, indulge in a free massage, eat healthy delicious food, hike and swim around the property (2 fresh rivers and a house pool), of course practice quality yoga, and so much more! Come to this transformative and epic vacation you will remember for the rest of your life!
I know 2016 is going to be an amazing year so let’s enter it with the intention to achieve balance and bring wellness into our lives. Let’s help each other and ourselves so we can make positive impacts within the environment and community. Let us aim to bring mindfulness into all aspects of our lives so that we can grow, achieve optimal health, and feel like the best versions of ourselves. I’ve missed you and beautiful Panama so I’m beyond happy to be back. I really can wait to practice together again.
Sending you love, light, and good vibes from the bottom of my heart. Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you soon!

~Jackie
