testimonials

'I have been going to Jacquie’s classes for several years. Jacquie is an excellent yoga teacher with a wealth of experience. She adapts her class to allow everyone to benefit and to be able to work at their own level. I love the sense of calm and focus in the class and always come out feeling great. I highly recommend Jacquie’s class.' 

Linzi Smith (physiotherapist)

‘I found Jacquie’s class when I was looking to increase the amount & intensity of the yoga I was doing after a week on a yoga holiday.  It was exactly what I wanted: different (in the first half being quite routinised); more challenging than the Hatha class I was used to (the sequences she takes you through are strong) and personal (I love that Jacquie corrects and develops my postures through hands-on adjustments).  The late afternoon timing is a bonus as are the various inversions (adjusted to ability & confidence) and the relaxation.  I leave feeling exhilarated, relaxed and cherished.’

about jacquie

Portrait of Jacquie Milham smiling

i began practicing yoga in 1998 at the age of 28 and for around six years i took a weekly hatha class, whatever was available and fitted my work schedule. then life threw up some of its tricky times and i found that my yoga practice was invaluable. i began ashtanga yoga and I began practicing at home as well as taking classes.

as my practice deepened and became more central to my life i decided that i needed to take time out of my daily schedule and travel to India to study for several months in Mysore with Sri K Patabi Jois. 

this trip was a life changing experience for me and when i returned to the UK i made changes to my working life so i could have more time for yoga. I now run my own architectural practice from home in order that I can have time for my yoga practice before work each day.

at first i began teaching family and friends at their request, then i took two teacher trainings in 2008 with David Swenson and in 2014 with John Scott, both senior ashtanga practitioners. 

i have found that over the years my practice has become more gentle and more meditative. my ashtanga practice is extremely useful for maintaining my physical strength / stamina and preventing deterioration of the slight scoliosis in my back. but, most fundamentally, yoga balances my mind. this is what I try to share in my class

to me, it is endlessly fascinating how subtlety of movement within the physical body can be used to release habitual movement patterns, break down physical and psychological tension and allow our life force to flow with more ease. i absolutely love teaching and having the opportunity to pass on some of the teaching that i have been lucky enough to receive.
