Orange Shoe Personal Trainers

Jacki Watzke


Orange Shoe Ftichburg Yoga Instructor


A Madison native and long-time Fitchburg resident Jacki is an enthusiastic and caring Certified Yoga Teacher.  She believes yoga poses are postures that re-balance the body.  They bring strength to weak areas of the body: they bring softness to the tight spots. Yoga can give you a workout with the added bonus of a work-in. Yoga can be approached as a moving meditation with a deep connection of breath and movement.  All bodies are yoga bodies and there is no “perfect” pose.  Each individual can find his or her own health-enhancing way of practicing yoga.  Her personal practice and teaching include; Power Flow Yoga, Gentle Flow Yoga, Core Yoga, and Yin Yoga. In addition to learning about Yoga she also enjoys learning about healthy eating, spending time in nature and most importantly spending time with her husband and two sons.
