Jackie Incorvia has been practicing yoga since 2005 and teaching full-time since 2009. In 2008, after taking an Eastern Philosophy class at University of Rhode Island, she traveled to south India to study classical Hatha yoga for five months. Jackie earned both her 200-hour certification and 500-hour certification with Yoga Teachers Training Institute, has studied Iyengar Yoga with Chicago-based senior Iyengar teacher, Gabriel Halpern, and began studying Ashtanga yoga more formally in 2012, completingover 150 hours of training with Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann in Miami. In an interest to provide the tools of yoga to a broader population, Jackie trained as a birth doula in 2014 and obtained her prenatal yoga teacher certification under Heather Simonson in 2015. Jackie's classes are generally an appropriation of the Ashtanga yoga sequence, but she draws from many other teachings and incorporates detailed alignment cues, breathing techniques, philosophy, mudra, and mantra, with influences from occupational therapy to acupressure to reiki. Her own experience with pain and a curiosity about "how things work" have informed and inspired her studies of the human system, anatomically, physiologically, psychologically, energetically, and spiritually, uncovering myriad techniques to promote healing and harmony that she strives to share with others.
With thousands of hours of teaching experience, Jackie has worked with a range of individuals from brand new beginner students to those aspiring and training to become yoga teachers themselves, from teenagers at Ward Melville High School to students first beginning a yoga practice in their seventies, and has done public, private, and semi-private sessions for families in their homes and in various local studios and facilities.
