Jaci McCarty, CYT
Jaci began her yoga journey after a running injury. Jaci instantly noticed the benefits to her body however she did not expect the profound positive changes that would impact her thought patterns and habits. Through the practice of yoga Jaci discovered a deeper connection between her mind and body, as well as, she learned to cultivate the breath. Through breath awareness Jaci came to the realization that the breath could be used as a tool for creating positive changes in her own life. Once she discovered how yoga could be used for personal transformation, she wanted to share the benefits with others. Jaci completed her 200-hour teacher training at the Temple of Kriya Yoga Chicago, studying with Kim Schwartz and David Lipshutz and then went on to complete an advanced training at Prairie Yoga with Lori Gaspar. Jaci's teaching style is based on the Hatha Yoga tradition where she focuses on grounding and opening energy that helps her students to connect with their mind and body. Jaci enjoys teaching with the seasons and providing insight into everyday life. She has the intention of giving her students the tools to be able to take their yoga practice "off the mat" and use it in everyday life so they are able to live with intention and be the creator of their own life experience. Jaci is very passionate about sharing yoga with her students including middle school and high school aged children.
