Jaque is originally from Brazil and has been living in Dublin, Ireland, since 2011.
She began practising yoga shortly after arriving in Ireland and quickly realised that not only did it make her feel fit and strong, but it also created a desire for a more fulfilling and healthier life.
This prompted her to learn more about yoga, which eventually reshaped her entire attitude towards life. She loves everything about the practice, from the physical aspects (asanas) to the chakras, the energetic body, and meditation.
Jaque completed her first 250-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training at Samadhi yoga studio in Dublin, and later completed the 200-hour Vinyasa & Rocket Yoga Teacher Training with Carson Calhoun. She has also trained in Yin Yoga, Anatomy, and Yoga for Sports, and she’s constantly taking CPD courses to further her expertise.
Jaque teaches a slow yet strong flow. Students can expect to hold poses a little longer than a regular Vinyasa class. She aims to build an awareness of body and mind through physically challenging classes, helping students to safely perform poses to the best of their ability with the correct alignment. She also hopes to inspire and motivate others to live a healthy and contemplative life.
