Jacqui Bonwell

I am a 500hr Registered
Yoga Teacher (E-RYT-500),  Level 1 Balanced Athlete ™
Certified coach, Yin Yoga & Meditation certified, Level 1 FMS
Functional Movement Systems certified, Reiki Master, Yoga Life
Coach, Director of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School (RYS-200hr level,
RYS-500hr level) in Greater Boston and New England, as well as
the Owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in Canton, MA. I hold a Bachelor
of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Rhode
Island. I work primarily with Yoga Teachers through
my 200hr & 300hr Yoga Teacher Training certification
programs. Additionally, I do a considerable amount of philanthropy
through Yoga for organizations such as Children's Hospital, MGH
Veterans Homebase Program to local organizations & families in
need.  My most important credential and greatest training has
been Motherhood. 
After receiving my
bachelors and traveling extensively, I settled back in MA
to begin my commitment and career in Social
Services that took me everywhere from Boston neighborhoods to
Ireland and Oregon. During my social services career, I had the
privilege of meeting amazing people who did more than persevere;
they transformed. At the same time, I witnessed a darker side of
life that felt like sandpaper to my
soul.  
There are defining moments
in life when we wonder if we are in the right place or if we are
heading in the right direction. Distance helps us to see things
clearly. Yoga provided me with the space I needed to reflect and
regroup. After ten years of giving 100%, I developed
ulcers from stress. My body had dictated that I had learned
how not to live. That is when I left Social Services. The children
I met through this career are my true teachers for life. I
have the utmost admiration for each of them and continue to pray
for their ease and freedom.
 
 I completed the Open
Doors Teacher Training out of Weymouth, MA. This program not only
touched on the teachings of yoga (power vinyasa, hatha
and restorative yoga) but included strong energy healing
components. I met a wonderful mentor, Reiki Master &
teacher, Pat Iyer. She helped me to build strong energetic
and physical roots right out of the training
gate.    
I will be forever
grateful for the sage teachings of those yogis who have gone before
me. I continue to be deeply inspired by my fellow yoga
teachers: Rolf Gates, Johnny Gillespie, David Vendetti, and
Pat Iyer. I have profound respect for an endless list of yogis
and healers that I have come to know. 
My greatest mission in
yoga is to direct people back to their original selves – where
their greatest source of freedom and strength already
exists. 
I see these very teachings
in my children: Lola, 10, and Wyatt, 5, and my two
children in spirit. My teachers include my husband, my mother,
my whole family, my friends and my yoga students. Through the
people put into my life, I know that the divine exists here on
earth.
