Jackie Szabo

Teacher / Studio Director /Owner

Jackie entered her local yoga centre in Montreal almost a decade ago. With that first step, what began as a one time experience quickly grew to a weekly “spiritual-fix”, eventually blooming into full immersion in the community as one of the current owners of the Downtown studio. After completing her 500hr Training, Jackie continued her growth as a teacher with Schuyler Grant and Nikki Vilella (Kula Yoga NYC), Dina T. (MTL), Kevin Courtney (NYC), Annie Carpenter (LA) and Maty Ezraty (LA) among others in traditions such as Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga. Her pursuits have taken her to India, Nepal, Africa, South America, Europe, Indonesia, Thailand, Costa Rica, Los Angeles, in stride with numerous visitations to New York City to learn from a full spectrum of world class teachers.

Jackie’s classes are rich with movement, vigorous, and explore depth in postures while working toward lightness, ease and effortlessness. She creates a positive space where the quality of thoughts can grow with the breath as guide. She is firm believer in the importance of community along side both the spiritual and physical practice of yoga. She has lead numerous retreats around the world (See Retreats) and continues to inspire connection at its rawest form in order to heal.
