Jacqui Bonwell began her study of Yoga after over a decade in Social Work. Jacqui’s study specialized in navigating domestic violence. She spent years in state social work. While there was great joy-the stress outweighed the joy & she was humbled into Yoga. 14 years later Jacqui is the Director of the 200hr & 300hr Sacred Seeds Yoga School through the Yoga Alliance for the past 7 years. She is also the owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in Canton, MA. She has successfully graduated over 200 students through her trainings & considers teaching a huge part of her calling. She is a 7 time presenter at Yoga Reaches Out at Gillette Stadium annually & a regular guest presenter at local studios, festivals, etc. She brings her humor, her heart & her soul into every crevice of her life & has an incredible love for people. She has her FMS Certification, Balanced Athlete(TM) Level 2 certification, Yin Yoga & Meditation certification. She is an E-RYT 500, a YACEP Continuing Education Provider for the Yoga Alliance, a Reiki Master & a Yoga Life Coach. While all of this has been tremendous study & commitment, nothing has spiritually coached & trained her better than Motherhood. Jacqui was once dubbed the “Spiritual Mother of New England.” She is a warrior, a leader, a force and her classes are considered life changing. She is grateful to Rolf Gates, Johnny Gillespie, David Vendetti, Pat Iyer, her Mom & really the entire planet for lighting her light.
