Jackie Rood has been an exercise enthusiast her entire life.  Her passion for fitness and movement encouraged her to earn a BS in Kinesiology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (where she met Jeff).  Her career started as a middle and elementary school physical education teacher and shifted to Group Fitness, Mind Body Classes, and Wellness Education after having children of her own.  Jackie enjoys being a Trainer, Assessor, and Presenter for a global fitness company as well as taking her practice more inward.  She had the opportunity to do her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training on an island in Greece and has been addicted to yoga ever since!  She continues her training focusing on Yoga + Ayurveda, which fuels her passion for living a dynamically balanced life.


Jeff Rood has been a lover of music for as long as he can remember.  His enthusiasm for playing the guitar began when he was 11 years old to impress “the ladies” and has continued to be a favorite hobby throughout his life. His desire to blend his passions and family life helped create the Acoustic Yoga concept. And nothing is better than doing yoga to live acoustic music! In Jeff’s spare time, you can find him walking the dogs, driving our teenagers, drinking coffee, doing projects, and of course wearing “funny tank tops.”
