Jacqui Bonwell


Jacqui Bonwell, E-RYT 500, YACEP, has been teaching yoga and meditation for almost two decades. A presenter at Kripalu since 2012, Jacqui earned her yoga teacher certification in 2005 through Open Doors in Weymouth, Massachusetts, where she achieved the highest degree of certification offered by the Yoga Alliance (YA) through her teacher Rolf Gates. Since then, Jacqui has graduated hundreds of yoga teachers from her 200 and 300-hour Yoga Alliance training certification programs, her CLIR restorative yoga certification programs, her yoga life coaching courses, and her yoga teaching apprenticeships. 

In addition to being a Reiki Master, Jacqui is the coauthor of Migrations: An Almanac for the Soul, a contemplative book released in 2019—the same year she became the recipient of the Boston Children's Hospital's Veteran of Service Award. An avid fundrasiser, she has fundraised for Boston Children's Hospital, the AfricaYoga Project, Mass General Hospital’s Homebase Program for Veterans, and many more.
