Opening our hearts through an asana creates an energy of gratitude.

Jackie Santacaterina-Manny

Instructor / 200 RYT
After a 5 year Professional Soccer career, Jackie’s body was craving the benefits of a regular yoga practice. A competitor at heart, Jackie loves the physical challenges of yoga, but the mental release is what kept her coming back for more. Learning how to slow down and focus on breath has taught Jackie patience and acceptance. Yoga has given her confidence and balance, and has allowed her to more easily transition to life after soccer. 
Outside of the yoga studio, you can find Jackie hanging with her family and occasionally running around on a soccer field. Jackie also currently does commentary for women’s soccer on the Big Ten Network and is a part of the Big Ten’s Women’s Sports Report on the Network.
