About Me

Jackie Koch

Yoga Instructor, Wellness Coach, & Herbalist

I specialize in making yoga accessible to people with injuries or specific needs.
I’ve always had a passion for movement and anatomy, which led me to become a professional dancer. After enduring damage to my body, I became inspired to teach yoga and other methods of holistic healing.
Why Yoga With Jackie?

Healing Is More Effective With A Multidimensional Approach

I create specified yoga programs that intertwine anatomy, kinesiology, meditation, breathwork, myofascial release, and holistic health with traditional yoga.


I believe yoga is a powerful tool for many issues and that the best care comes when working together as a team. I truly enjoy guiding students and encouraging them to practice.


After 15 years of teaching yoga, I am highly experienced in working with different body types, ages, injuries, and medical issues.

My private sessions are customized to the individual student and are ideal for anyone needing special attention. Together we practice yoga that is meaningful for their life and body.

My group classes dive deep into the systems and inner workings of the body. As an advanced teacher I can confidently lead a multi-level class that is satisfying and inspiring.

This mindful and medicinal approach to yoga provides a yoga practice that is well balanced and healing, without any worry of injuries or extremes. I make yoga functional and very effective in this modern day. 

"Jackie is incredibly perceptive to her students yogi abilities and creates individual sequences. They are very enjoyable, but at the same time challenging.
The ZOOM class works really well and I recommend you give it a try."

When I’m not teaching yoga you can find me making magical herbal potions, walking my french bulldog, exploring deep in nature, and studying the French language. I grew up and danced professionally on the east coast of the USA, which lead me to begin my yoga studies.  Then I moved to Panama where I lived for 7 years teaching yoga and dance. I produced wellness events, yoga retreats, and collaborated on numerous artistic projects in the tropics. 

I am currently living in Lyon, France with my husband and french bulldog. I create expat wellness events in Lyon and teach private classes in person and online to people all over the world.
