Jessica H. AkikiDSY, Centrik Yoga

Jessica comes from a background in fitness and personal training. She has been practising yoga for nearly twenty years and is also qualified yoga therapist. Jessica teaches a Yoga for Anxiety class on Weds at 7:30 and a Flow yoga class on Thursday mornings at 10:30am.

Coming an extensive background in fitness as personal trainer in various disciplines, I discovered Yoga in 2002. Since then it has taken an integral part of my life throughout my happy times and challenging ones. It taught me how to build an honest and kind relationship between body, mind and breath. Yoga shows the way to build strength and spaciousness, resistance and release to find equilibrium and freedom of movement. 

I qualified as Yoga Teacher after completing my training with Kevala Centre in Torquay in 2010, and in 2017 I completed my Post Graduate Yoga Therapy course with the Devon School of Yoga in Exeter in 2017. 

In 2012 -2013 I completed Reiki Practitioner Level 1 and 2 with Totnes Natural Health Centre to work the subtle body which is a non intrusive method to promote integration of Body, Mental and Emotional bodies in a deep state of relaxation. 

Practices are done in a peace loving environment, opening a door for wholeness, clarity and healing using traditional yogic concept such as physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation.
