Teacher Profiles
Jerry Smith-Guidry, ERYT 500
Jerry Smith-Guidry, ERYT 500
In 1990, when Jerry began her journey as a massage therapist and yoga instructor, she wanted to help others toward more integration of mind, body and spirit. In all things she looks for ideas that cultivate unity, compassion, joy, and peace. In 2008, Acadiana Yoga and Wellness Yoga Teacher Training program was approved by Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga School. “To teach others how to teach Yoga fearlessly is my ultimate calling,” says Jerry. “That was the biggest reason we opened the studio. It’s my way of making a commitment to our community. I want to offer a place where students of Yoga can expand and intensify their knowledge of this ancient practice." “Jerry is an excellent teacher who embodies /teaches/conveys a wholistic understanding of what's really meant by the word 'yoga'." - Erich Schiffmann, Yoga Master and author, Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Into Stillness "A teacher must do more than be of service to the students who come to them. A great teacher finds joy and personal inspiration in every opportunity that the practice offers. Jerry is one such great teacher." - Sharon Gannon, Co-founder, Jivamukti Yoga School and author, Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body and Soul. Jerry reminds us of the verse from the Bhagavad Gita – “On this path no effort is wasted, no gain is ever reversed; even a little of this practice will shelter you from great sorrow."
