Jackie Chiodo ERYT 500, serves her local and global Yoga Tribe, as a Yoga Instructor, Certified Clinical/ Medical Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, and Ayurvedic Wellness Coach. Her purpose in life and call to service, is to help each individual wake-up to their limiting beliefs, and provide them with the knowledge and experience in order for self-healing, transformation and growth to occur. Jackie is passionate about nature and guides her students and clients to tune into the natural world for balance and well-being. Her love of nature and the elements is woven into her teachings and lifestyle through Ayurveda and the Chakra System.

Jackie asks each student to hold up a mirror and see themselves as they truly are, so they can see the world as it really is.  She inspires students to meet themselves where they are and be honest with how they got here. She will encourage you to go deep and dream big and ask: Who do I wish to be? How do I want to be seen in the world?

She will challenge you to be accountable for how you show up and what you create in your life because of it. She inspires you to let go, clear the way, and awaken to the full possibility as you embrace the gift of being YOU. She reminds you of the power of your mind and how to use it as a tool instead of a weapon.  Jackie’s programs have transformed hundreds of students in her past 20 years of guiding others into wholeness and wellness with the tools of Yoga, Mediation, Ayurveda and Hypnotherapy.

Jackie is a student of life and continues to evolve and adapt and educate herself in order to be of the best service to her community. Jackie has been leading yoga classes, trainings and retreats since 2001 and owned a successful yoga center in SW Florida for 16 years, which she has transferred online for now. She has a degree in Religious studies from Rutgers, University and is able to weave a deeper understanding from an academic perspective of spirituality and philosophy into this program.

Jackie integrates the power of intention and ritual throughout the training, translating the elements into the teaching of yoga and life. Jackie is fascinated by the power of the subconscious mind and in pursuit of her understanding, she became a certified clinical and medical support, hypnotherapist in 2018. She weaves the teachings of yoga and the power of the mind with Yoga Nidra and self- hypnosis, to expedite personal healing and heighten awareness of limiting beliefs being fed through the mind, nervous system and body. She connects this to the Chakra system and how it affects what we experience in life. She will guide you into the power of your own mind, where you have the knowledge and control to shift in a deeper way, to experience lasting results.

Jackie has been educating and guiding others into self-healing for over 20 years, with over 25,000 hours of teaching/coaching experience in Yoga, Ayurveda, and Meditation. She leads trainings, retreats and continuing education online and at Anamaya. She loves the jungle and will guide you to tune into the environment and allow nature to assist you in your quest for self-understanding, healing and transformation. Jackie has been leading her jungle tribes at Anamaya, since 2011.
She is a leader in the field of integrated wellness and is passionate about healing the world One Mind at a time.

I enjoyed my month spent at Anamaya. Jackie is a fantastic instructor with a great depth of knowledge. She really made our time at Anamaya special.

Jackie is the most amazing teacher I have had the pleasure to meet. The outlay of the course is challenging but so rewarding. Jackie's explanation of Anatomy philosophy is so practical. I loved the way she went over each of the Chakras and how they effect us. I personally don't think any other teacher would of got to me the way she did. One of the best decisions I've made was taking my 300 yoga advance training at Anamaya. I was there for a month in the jungle in the breath taking environment. From the moment you arrive to Anamaya, it's the personal touch from all the staff, that makes you so at home and comfortable. To experience it you would understand why they call it the Anamaya family and you become a part of that. The food is of top restaurant standard everyday. Served in the big house where everyone meets guests and teacher trainers. I highly recommend Anamaya to anyone considering yoga teacher training or if it's a retreat you're looking for. I will definitely return and thanks so much for the great memories.
