Jacquie is a certified Level One Antigravity Instructor who fell in love with the practice where she could build strength, stretch her body ( and her limits) and rest all in one class. As a former dancer and current yoga instructor, she understands the need to restore the muscles for overall well being while have fun at the same time.
After living in New York City for six years as an event producer she moved to the MidCoast to recharge and find something more for her life. Inthose short months she found friends, community and a beautiful place that she could call home. While she still plans events for restaurants in the area, teaching and working as a private chef has brought her joy by helping her clients build sustainable and healthy lives.
I'm originally a city girl form (mostly) Portland Maine and after moving to the Midcoast area quickly realized that small town life was for me and my adventurous nature. The Americorps National Volunteer program is what brought me here- the amazing location and beautiful souls that make this magical community is what kept me here. I've always had a natural interest in health and fitness and after having children and struggling to find the balance between parenting work and health I knew I needed to find my way back to the fit lifestyle I always wanted for myself and family. So with determination, commitment and support from my friends, family and good trainers I was finally able to achieve that balance. It wasn't easy, but with a lot of hard work I am proud to be in a better place today than yesterday and the process has given me unique perspective on the challenges of meeting your health and weight loss goals. One of my favorite moments to witness is when someone achieves what they thought they could not . My goal is to help others gain confidence- that sparkle in the eye when you've made the impossible possible.
