Jackie is a Canadian turned island-girl, who has been living in Turks and Caicos since 2008. By day she is a marine biologist, taking charge of watersports, youth programs and conservation initiatives at the hotel where she works. Jackie’s favorite project is the sea turtle research that she gets to lead, with green and hawksbill sea turtles in Turks and Caicos. Yoga entered Jackie’s life about 5 years ago, while she was in New Zealand and started taking Bikram classes. In 2016
Jackie decided to take her 200 hour yoga instructor course with Naked Truth Yoga out of Vancouver, Canada and she is excited to share her newly found gentle flow and restorative-style classes with the Retreat team. When not on the mat or on/under the water, Jackie can be found at the beach, usually with a camera in her hand!
