Jacqui Zhao is a familiar face at Elixr. A member turned teacher, she was first attracted to yoga for the tools it gave her when facing life's challenges. Jacqui completed her yoga teacher training with Don Peers in November 2014 and has this to say about the experience:
"The training changed a lot for me – not only is Don an incredibly passionate teacher, he is also a compassionate mentor who guided us through any challenges we faced, both physical and mental, during and after the training. I learnt a huge amount from Don's training, not just about yoga and meditation, but also about myself as a person and a teacher.
Currently, I work full time in the finance industry and teach yoga outside of my regular work hours. This provides me with the perfect balance. One of the most important lessons I've learnt is not to take myself too seriously. Sometimes (often!) you just have to laugh. I teach to share the benefits of yoga with my students – to help them find the mental and physical tools to face life's challenges."
