travel the world and teach yoga

travel the world and teach yogaJacqueline Purnell is an amazing Yoga teacher and her Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Trainings are excellent.

Exactly one year ago I trained with her.
I called her the yoga lexicon, as she could answer all my questions precisely.
She has a huge knowledge and her softness and motherly way to explain helped me to even reach deeper to the real roots of Yoga.
We had been a strong group of 14 participants 4 of them Doctors.
We also went into the area how Yoga can help with medical issues.
The way she welcomed us in her beautiful Yoga center, close to the sea, we could listen to the waves in our meditations and sunrise and sunset spots, were very close by and I used those places to meditate on my own.
Sol her beautiful husband cooked honest food for us only products from the island.
Jacqueline was every second of the training full there with her beautiful presence, concentration and dedication.

travel the world and teach yogaI am travelling the world and I am teaching Yoga everywhere. The last training with Jaqueline gave me such a profound deep knowledge that I finally call myself a YOGA TEACHER.

Also could I connect Jaqueline in the last year with upcoming questions and she would be at my side with her knowledge and she would let me practise what I wanted to teach.

I am delighted I chose Jacqueline Purnell's Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training on Ibiza and I would always do it again and I recommend it to everybody.
Thank you Jacqueline.

TESTIMONIAL:
My retreat experience was relaxing. The location was beautiful, the teaching was very good and the evening meditation was amazing. My wife and I are both from big stressful cities and from the very first night, we started dreaming very intensely and experienced rest like we hadn’t found in a long time.
Jaron Schulz - Christmas 2016

TESTIMONIAL:
The location was beautiful, very quiet and peaceful. I loved that the morning yoga class was intense, whilst the evening class was more restorative and the evening meditation was excellent. This is ideal for people who want to escape from their everyday lives and restart their bodies by meditating, eating clean, yoga, reducing their coffee intake and who want to bring some of these habits home.

Who's that girl...?

Leanna Plant

So I arrived in Ibiza in a campervan, with all the family and dog in search of a more meaningful and connected life........ and I got it!

Leaving our home behind in London I realised it was hard to lose the London girl in me and to jump in to find new purpose, new direction, new aspirations, new friends and build a life for us all.
On a personal level having become a Yoga teacher in 2011 and taught in a busy Hot Yoga studio and having had a variety of yoga styles on my doorstep to immerse myself in, I wondered.... 'Where was my yoga journey going to take me??'

After some time out to be mama I was ready to be inspired and to then inspire others and what better place to start but in Ibiza I thought...? On a island with very educated yogi's and a sea of 200hr teachers... Hhmmm?

Then I found Jacqueline and Yogashala which sparked my inspiration and woohoo my new yoga journey began!

Her wise words and immense knowledge motivated me to delve deeper into my yoga studies and I began my 500hr TT. Our relationship began and continues as my teacher, my friend and my guiding light.

As my training continues with Yogashala over a year I have the pleasure and honour of being one of her teachers and assisting on the Yogashala 200hr TT and occasionally covering the classes at Galeria Elephante and Garden of Joy.

My aspirations now are to be the best person I can be for my family and to transcend all this in my class mixed with continued learning, harmony and sprinkled with a lot of love.
With big thanks to my husband my 2 babies and to Jacqueline Annabelle Purnell for being the best teachers I could wish for.

 

Besitos

Testimonial

Helene RobinThe awesome sweet location where I started after two years no training due to Disc Hernia troubles was a hearth warming welcome back to yoga.

As a bootcamper I joined the teacher training programme and with focus, concentration and beautiful build up I was within three days getting more and more back in my body.

The sweet and strong guidance was uplifting and did bring a feeling of wanting more.

More understanding and more training.... hope to be back soon...

Helene Robin

 

I am pretty new to Yoga and had a great yoga holiday experience at Yogashala Ibiza.

It is a beautiful location and Jacqueline is a fantastic teacher. There was a great balance in the practice between relaxation and extending yourself physically and would suit all levels of experience, even me.

I arrive from a long flight exhausted with a knee injury and left 10 days later invigorated and well on the road to recovery with my leg. I would love to come again soon.

Community

The Garden Of Joy

We want to support our local farmers and their traditional lifestyle, and hope to form an ecological community with our neighbours.

The Ibecenco people living in these rural areas are an extremely dignified people; their lives edging gently forwards in a time-honoured fashion with so many treasured techniques to share. 

Local farmers have been farming here for generations and still farm by hand. The mountainous interior of the island is a quilt of dense pine forest and olive and almond groves.

Farmers use ancient terracing to cultivate their crops and irrigation techniques introduced by the Arabs over 1,000 years ago.

Environment

The Garden Of Joy

Our rustic Garden Of Joy was custom built for yoga practice by Jacqueline and her partner Sol, who is also the resident chef. It has its own organic vegetable garden offering fresh veg for your meals and as water conservation and recycling techniques are very important here therefore all of our water comes from our well.

We collect rainwater to irrigate our garden and organic vegetable area, and use seaweed to fertilise our soil, which is an application of permaculture techniques that we are learning. In future, we hope to add desalination options using local techniques and invest in new alternative energy sources.

We are committed to renovating and maintaining our centre with locally-sourced materials. We also aim to be as self-sufficient and eco-friendly as possible, using energy-saving lightbulbs and our own candles handmade from natural materials such as beeswax and essential oils.
