Instructor: Jackie Enberg

Jackie is an animal care supervisor at Assiniboine Park Zoo as well as a yoga instructor!

About Jackie: 

Yoga entered my life through a book I found at a thrift store 30 years ago, but I never attended a class until years later when I was pregnant.  I am certified in vinyasa, and restorative yoga and I have been facilitating yoga at my community club for the last couple of years before March of 2020.  My passions are polar bears and yoga, and I proudly bring the two together for fundraisers at the Zoo on International Polar Bear Day. 

The Summer Entertainment Series is made possible with support from the Richardson Foundation
