Jardana Peacock is the founder of Reclaim, an organization that focuses on health and healing for a just world. Reclaim is grounded in social
justice principles and operates as a hybrid between a business, offering services in Ashtanga Vinyassa Yoga and Yoga for Healing--and a nonprofit, offering community wellness programs in working class and poor communities.
She is a 200-hour certified yoga teacher with over twelve years of experience and training. In addition, she has over 100 hours of Thai Yoga
Massage training and practice and is a member of the Thai Healing Alliance. She has been an artist/organizer and an antiracist educator for over a decade.
Jardana first attended yoga classes as a way to“exercise” but soon discovered yoga was so much more. Through yoga she began to confront and work through the physical and emotional trauma and pain housed in her body. She believes that yoga is a deeply healing and spiritual practice. She practices Ashtanga Vinyassa yoga and teaches both vinyassa flow and restorative classes. Jardana brings this yoga practice to the people in youth centers and in other community spaces with adults. Her primary yoga teacher, Laura Spaulding is a student of the late Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, the founder of Ashtanga Yoga. She has also studied under Kelly Golden, Kino MacGregor, David Williams, Tim Miller and others. She is currently studying Thai Yoga Massage under Kelly Scott of Dragonfly Massage Studio in Knoxville, Tennessee.
