Meet Yoga Teacher Jacky Kalaani

Jacky Kalaani graduated from Baldwin Wallace University in 2006 with a degree in Exercise Physiology. She began practicing yoga in 2000 after multiple spinal surgeries from scoliosis. Yoga started off as rehab and a means to an end but she soon realized the multiple benefits yoga has to offer.

She graduated from Cleveland Yoga’s 200 hour Teacher Training program in 2011 with Tami Schneider, Jenn Harte, Christina LaMarca and Christie Gascoigne and has been teaching around the Cleveland area since. Her teaching style is powerful yet balanced.
