Jacqueline Porjes - Yoga and PT Instructor

About The Teacher

Jacqueline Porjes uses a threefold approach to achieving the goal of living a fitter life:physical training, good nutrition and a healthy environment. With a background in a stressful sales career, a reliance on unhealthy foods and a smoking habit Jacqui made the decision many years ago to change her own life.

After qualifying as a personal trainer, running her first marathon and gaining experience in various London leisure centres she set up her company AFitterLife to help, motivate and inspire others to do the same. As a mother she saw the importance of combating the post-baby blues with outdoor exercise in the company of other new mums. She set up a local Buggyfit group to train postnatal women in a fun, safe environment.

She enjoys working with both groups and individuals in various London parks to realise their potential, combining cardio, pilates and yoga with excellent results.

Jacqui is a fully qualified yoga teacher and a member of the British wheel of yoga. She specialises in postnatal and Vinyasa flow yoga.Jacqui has studied Nutritional Therapy with the Kevala Centre. She provides her clients with simple, easy to follow healthy eating programmes that compliment physical training.

She recognises the importance of providing both advice and support on the journey to healthy living.
