Jacqueline has a passion for movement, knowledge in how the body moves, and how this enhances our well-being. Dance and Pilates both require the body and mind to work together. She believe teaching the body and mind to work together helps balance our life physically, emotionally and spiritually; helping us to embrace our bodies and feel empowered in our own skin. She believes there is great value in learning and experimenting with all types of movement disciplines. When you open your mind, your body will follow resulting in a physical transformation of a stronger, smarter body.
