About the Teacher
Demetria Jackson is a body positive activist and plus-sized, trauma sensitive, yoga instructor who, before finding Kundalini Yoga, actively avoided yoga classes like the plague. Having experienced it all from condescending tones, to uncomfortable stares, to being offered little to no modifications, and being singled out in class as an assumed beginner without any prior conversations, Demetria knows how hard it can be to muster up the courage to come to a yoga class when your body doesn’t fit the so-called norm.
Demetria frequently works with beginners, clients in larger bodies and clients with a variety of bodily constraints and/or disabilities including (but not limited to) sore knees, tight hips, achy backs and tender wrists. She loves to teach her students how to use props to support their practice and work with their unique body, rather than against it.
Committed to bringing Kundalini Yoga into communities that aren’t able to access to the practice, Demetria works with Freeing the Human Spirit to share this transformative practice with inmates in Toronto Detention Centres.
Demetria is known for her high-vibe playlists and soulful classes that open the heart centre and challenge the body and the mind giving her students the opportunity to release blocks, heal themselves and experience radical transformation.
