Join Jenny Jackson in this informative and DELICIOUS retreat.  Jenny is passionate about Yoga, meditation and great tasting, healthy food. There is no cookie cutter, one size fits all diet.  By learning to enhance your physical and mental health through Yoga and find a way to eat that’s right for your body, you can thrive in a happy, healthy life!

Food choices profoundly impact both physical and mental well being. Expand your understanding of how the foods you eat affect far more than digestion. Commit to a shift today and start yourself on a path towards Optimal Health & Happiness!

Our bodies are host to trillions of microorganisms! The human gut microbiome and its role in both health and disease has been researched extensively in recent years. Studies point to its involvement in human metabolism, nutrition, physiology, mental health and immune function. Eating for your brain, ultimately, means eating for a happy and healthy gut microbiome.  A healthy gut means a healthy life.

– Hippocrates, father of modern medicine 460-370 B.C.

Meet Your Teacher

Jenny Jackson has been immersed in Movement Education for more than 20 years. Jenny is a seeker of inner well-being, and she consciously aligns herself living with an open mind, an open heart and embodies joy & vitality which is reflected in her welcoming & inclusive style of instruction. She teaches with a strong anatomical influence while still deeply honouring the classical roots of yoga. Jenny believes that feeling vital and in harmony with others & within our own selves is the primary goal (in life and in our bodies), and practice should reflect this.

Expect well-planned, responsible, creative & intuitive instruction within Jenny’s classes and retreats. Trust that your needs will be supported and a sense of inclusion & community will always be a focus. Jenny takes her offerings (but not herself) very seriously, so you can relax and be yourself as she leads with humour and vulnerability.

Jenny is a certified and experienced schoolteacher, yoga teacher, personal trainer, group fitness coach, and Health & Wellness coach. Jenny finds her own sense of centering while mountain biking in the forest and enjoying her stand-up paddleboard. She is the founder of Body Balanced Wellness, which offers registered Yoga Teacher Training Programs, both online & in person.
