Jaqui Wan – Believe in your playing potential
Jaqui has an asana yoga practice that spans in excess of 20 years and as a result has accumulated thousands of hours of self-practice and training and has been influenced by several teachers and styles. Despite this experience she still sees herself as a student and is constantly learning new things in her practice and through her teaching.
She has been drawn to strong and dynamic styles of asana yoga beginning with Ashtanga Vinyasa to Dharma Yoga and Tripsichore; she has also been hugely influenced with her training into myofascial movement, drawn from Tom Myer’s ‘Anatomy Trains’. This supports and legitimises, anatomically and physiologically, the Nadi, Sen and Meridian energy lines in the body and how that applies to a fully functioning body, thereby marrying up her work in the healing arts.
Since being certified as and AcroYoga teacher in 2006, she has been a complete convert to this practice and as a such has been studying partner acrobatics since her teacher training. She started out as a flyer and for the past years discovered the joys of being a base, despite her size being at times a disadvantage.
Jaqui has a dynamic and at times challenging yet playful teaching style. She loves exploring and mixing practices together to get students into their bodies as well as supporting and collaborating with each other.
By helping people connect to themselves and one another I believe that we can create peace around us and in the world. Before discovering AcroYoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and Vipassana meditation I spent years kayaking, climbing, skiing, backpacking, and dancing. Now, by “showing up” to do my practices I have experienced profound and deep changes in my life.
One of the greatest lessons I have learned is how to connect to my breath. The breath is the only constant we have from birth to death. I grew up in a house hearing the words Yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, and meridians but it was not until I was 26 that I started to explore them.
Now, I am very excited to share these passions and teach AcroYoga across the planet. I am based out of Portland, Oregon but I travel throughout Europe and Southeast Asia for many months of the year.
