It has been an awesome experience working with Jackie. She is very calm, an attentive listener and offers the best motivation and encouragement to achieve your aims and goals. She leads you to consider and make clear decisions on what you would like to achieve, even if that means changing your strategy etc. She does this through her excellent questioning skills. She always makes you feel empowered to make the best decision that is best for you. She is non judgemental and have a general positive attitude and approach. Jackie is also resourceful and have provided useful information that led me to take some impactful action towards my overall goal. Thanks Jackie. More...

It has been a pleasure to guide Shola in her practice. I know Yoga is not for everyone, however once your hooked, your hooked. It’s makes my job easy when my lovely clients are so receptive, it motivates me even more.

Jackie is a brilliant instructor. I hadn’t done yoga before, I started in lockdown on zoom and I found it an amazing way of relaxing and a distraction from the hard times we were going through. Jackie would explain everything and would adapt the session to the needs of the group. Thank you Jackie More...

Yoga review

Just being on my mat, in my sacred space, and focusing on my breath put me in the present moment. If I thought too much about what happened. I would get sad and angry, and I couldn’t forgive. If I thought too much about the future, that was too overwhelming. But if I stayed right in the present moment. I could handle things with grace and ease by inhaling positivity and exhaling negativity.
To resume my mindset during and after my yoga practice with Jackie. She is an amazing and enthusiastic instructor with her intense and vigorous yoga style. Style which helps me to maintain my physical and mental health.
She always starts her live session with a motivational quote to help find a purpose to your practice.
I vividly recommend you to join our online yogi community for healing and fun moments. Yay You can practice everywhere...with Jackie..❤️🧘🏾‍♀️🧘🏾‍♀️

I have been doing yoga for years , but not been doing it for a while. I started doing Jackie's yoga classes in Match and haven't stopped. Due to covid the classes have come in very handy.
Jackie is a great teacher and has a calm nature about her and covers all your needs. She makes the classes enjoyable but it's hard work.
I would recommend that you try one of Jackie's classes. It's affordable, she even does one to one sessions as well.
You don't have to take my word for it, try for your self.
Thank you

Jackie is a great yoga teacher. I like her teaching style, I never get confused about what I have to do. Her classes are for all levels, sessions are challenging but with different options to suit different people. She brings a big focus on technique which has clearly helped my yoga practice, and although done online she manages to pay individuals attention and correct techniques.

I like the variety of the yoga sessions, at least once a week (there is a session each day of the week) we use exercise ball and weights. I find exercise ball sessions another way of engaging stability and the weights are added fun of balancing and working your biceps at the same time.

I leave each session feeling like I’ve had a workout but also surprisingly chilled out and although you’ve worked hard you’ll somehow come out relaxed. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

A great listener is what comes to mind when I think about Jackie. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jackie earlier this week. During our session, she was able to identify the steps to bring about the change I’m embarking on. I left the meeting with renewed energy and sense of direction. Jackie comes with my heartfelt recommendation. More...

Jackie is such an amazing teacher! Very nurturing and gets your best practice out of you. Yoga trapeze is just amazing as a yoga practice, very rewarding, on my first class I managed to get in to an inversion! And the trapeze gets the right stretches and positions without putting stress on your joints. Cannot recommend highly enough! More...

It’s always an interesting session when you are working with a fellow coach. We had quite a good session , covering quite a lot. I am happy that Sandra found this first session useful and hopefully she will be able to take away something positive from each session and something to work towards . Looking forward to next session.

Simon is an inspiration to others, but I’m not sure he realises this. It is a privilege to work with him.

Saffron is an amazing mentor and I would recommend her to anyone who needs emotional support in their career or daily lives. I recently moved here from the Caribbean and adjusting to my new journey here in the UK has been challenging. I reached out to Saffron who worked with me through my financial difficulties as well as my overall Life Goals. She is very patient, kind, understanding and most importantly encouraging. I am grateful that I met her because now she is more than just a mentor, she has become a friend who I trust. More...

Confused, stuck, lost...these are words that started to come out after my very first session with Jackie, she really helped me articulate the way I had been feeling.

I've long been a sceptic but after been convinced by a friend to try a life coach I started to research different options and this is where I found Jackie. I've had a series of sessions over the phone and in person and I can testify it has definitely helped provide some clarity in my own life and guide me into a more positive future.

Jackie herself is a patient, caring and optimistic person who's both professional and empathetic when it comes to her clients and I would happily recommend her to family, friends and strangers.

I really had a great time with Jackie. She provided the exact guidance, confidence and plan of action that i needed. She is very flexible. She highlighted the main barriers and the guide to deal with those barriers and confusions that i had for so long regarding my job, career and studies. Meeting and having a conversation with her is a time saver for me as well. She provided me the step by step guidance. And asked me that she is going to do a follow-up. :) I had alot of questions and confusions and she answered and made all clear to me. Love you Jackie ❤️ Thanks for asking me to not get distracted by anything, not even writing a review for you. :) Thanks for your sincerity and good will. :) More...

One of the great things that happened to us (as Afflatus Africa) on this journey of promoting intergenerational exchange through mentorship and career guidance was to get mentorship from Grow movement and being mentored by the best of the best mentor Jackie Ngu.

In only six months Jackie improved our working trategies, planning, organizing, fundraising implementing and executing.

Jackie was not only a mentor as she was supposed to do but sacrifices more of her time for us to get more from her experience and she is still our advisor.

Bertin was and still is a pleasure to mentor and coach. He is on a mission to inspire and motivate his generation and beyond. He has achieved so much and I am very proud of him.

Q&As

I enjoy helping people realise that they have more potential then they think they have and seeing the positive transformation.
Life is complex but sometimes it really doesn’t have to be and can be solved as a jigsaw puzzle. I also have a lot of experience with business startup and strategy which I also enjoy seeing a business idea materialise from inception to an actual business. I love when clients actually know the answers to their own questions but just not sure of them self to believe in these answers until you show them that you resonate with them as well.

I enjoy the flexibility of being able to manage my own time and work where ever and when I want to work. I also have a great passion of working with people and helping, supporting and providing guidance in all aspects of their lives, both professionally and and personally.

When looking for a coach it is important that you have a connection with your coach. With this connection you will feel at easy to be open and honest which will give you better results. You need to have someone that understands without being judgemental, listens to verbal and non-verbal communication and at the same time be empathetic and not sympathetic. You will be able to identify whether I fit the criteria above for you during our initial 30min complimentary discovery call.

Services

Explore what is going on in your life resulting in stress, lack of motivation. Helping you see that there is light at the end of the tunnel and there is a way out. I will be that person that you can have a real honest conversation without feeling that you are being judged.
Career change or move, can explore this with you and I support and guide you to look in the right direction.

Do you suffer from back problems, weak core, poor upper body strength, poor grip strength?
Yoga Trapeze can address all of above and more. This is yoga with a difference and gives you a higher chance of doing inversions that you might not of been able to achieve on the mat. On top of all of this it is fun.

Supporting with business startup and strategy. Look at what is working well and and what is not working so well and why. Exploring new business ideas with you. This could be any business as business modelling is pretty much the same, there has to be a need for customers to buy into the product or service. I have worked in healthcare for over 15 years, however I can also look at other businesses and give support and guidance.

I run online Mat Yoga via Zoom inspired by Pilates and Tai Chi. Incorporating props such as Yoga strap, Yoga Block, Stability Ball and weights. The sessions are tailored to your needs and appeals to both beginners and intermediate yogis.

Offer group coaching sessions covering various topics as required. There are many benefits working in a group with peer learning.
