Demetria Jackson

Demetria Jackson is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Women’s Liberation Coach and Body Positivity & Mental Wellness Activist.

As one of the faces of a new generation of inclusive, body positive yoga teachers, she is passionate about creating sacred spaces where women of all ethnicities, sizes and abilities can feel safe, at home in, and at peace with their bodies on and off the mat. Inspired by her own journey as a black practitioner in a larger body, Demetria created Kundalini for All, a training turned digital course that teaches kundalini yoga teachers how to make the practice more accessible, inclusive, and inviting for people in bigger and diverse bodies.

Demetria is also the founder of The Aquarian Woman and The Aquarian Woman Freedom School, a movement and school she created in deep devotion of freedom-focused sisterhood. Here, she blends the ancient teachings of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation with the wisdom gained from her own lived experiences to help resilient women in revolutionary bodies drop fear, release shame, and banish self-doubt so they can set themselves free and inspire others to do the same.

Demetria lives in Toronto, ON with her sweet baby, Kayden, and is currently creating an online shop and apothecary to support the spiritual evolution of The Aquarian Woman (coming 2018). For more information, visit demetriajackson.com.
