About the instructor: Jacquie “Sunny” Barbee is an E-RYT 200 hr yoga teacher living in the Panhandle of Florida. After practicing yoga to help with her chronic illness and anxiety for several years, she made the dive into yoga teacher training in 2016. While in YTT Sunny realized there was a need for more teachers that didn’t fit the stereotypical “yoga body” image like her and that she could make a difference in helping people see that yoga is for every body. She is able to share with others how to customize their practice to fit their body, whether that body is larger, aging, or living illness or injury, much like she does with her own practice. Creating safe spaces where the student can connect and make peace with their bodies is what Sunny loves most about teaching yoga. She gets very excited when her students are able to find variations of poses that fit their body comfortably.

Off the mat, Sunny enjoys hiking, camping and going to the beach with her husband and daughter.
