Favorite inspirational quote: “You wander from room to room, hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck.” – Rumi

When/where/with who was your first yoga class? Before school one morning during my senior year of high school with my very good friend, Cadena. Her father had just opened a yoga studio in downtown North Attleboro.

What / who inspires you? My mother and father. Also, nature and the circle of life – it just blows my mind.

What I love most about yoga is: Yoga has given me a new set of eyes. I love most that it continues to help me create space in places that I get stuck and how it helps me to shed off layers of armor that I wear for protection. It helps me to connect deeper with who I really am.

What you can’t live without? Fresh air and my few but very close, childhood girlfriends.

What you might not know about me: I have dreams of being a hip hop dancer with big, poofy hair wearing high top Reebok Pumps.

Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): “Everything is a choice,” from a very good friend.

My favorite book: “How Yoga Works” by Michael Roach

Favorite Word: Hello

Local escape: Kennebunkport, ME 

My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): Garden, cook, cat naps, swim, hike, play in the snow, and pretend to be a hip hop dancer.

Jacki Libby instructs the following:
  • Morning Flow (Hot Heat)
  • MYoga Flow Yoga covers a wide variety of yoga styles. Including; Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram and Baptiste. It is a vigorous practice that strengthens the core muscles in the body, enhances flexibility, while encouraging deep concentration and focus. All Flow Yoga is practiced in a heated room. The heat encourages perspiration, which helps to detoxify and cleanse the body. The muscles respond to the heat by relaxing and allowing us to move deeper into a posture. There is an assumption that you have practiced before, so there is less attention to alignment ques. This moves at a faster pace to elevate the heart rate and elevate the cardiovascular system as well as develop strength and flexibility. This practice will tone and sculpt your body and heal your soul. Be prepared to sweat, and discover your inner strength!  (Hot Heat)

  • Slow Flow (Mild Heat)
  • MYoga Slow Flow incorporates the same principles as MYoga Flow, with less postures than a regular Flow Yoga class — more emphasis on alignment, breath and the foundational tools of a yoga practice. We recommend 3 -6 classes before attending a regular Flow Yoga class. (Mild Heat)

  • MYoga Hot Hatha (Hot Heat)
  • This invigorating and mindful series that Shawn developed incorporates strengthening postures as well as emphasizing stillness and focus. Postures are held longer than our flow classes. The practice allows for students to work with their breath while developing strength and flexibility. Be prepared to transform your practice. Open to all levels. It will challenge the experienced student, but moves slow enough for a newer student.  (Hot Heat)

  • Shakti Flow - Slow (Mild Heat)
  • Shakti is described as the “divine force, manifesting to destroy demonic forces and restore balance. This Vinyasa class is taught by senior teachers and will step outside our standard Vinyasa format. Each class has a different theme or focus and no two classes are exactly identical requiring students to cultivate an even greater sense of “present moment” attention and focus. There is an assumption you have practiced before and class will move at a quicker pace than slow flow. Be prepared to sweat and feel empowered.  (Mild Heat)
