Jill finished her first Yoga Teacher Training in 2013. Since then she has continued to not only deepen her practice but also explore various styles of yoga, teaching to diverse groups of people at an array of locations from small studios and gyms, to at risk youth schools and juvenile detention centers. In 2015 she found Baptiste Yoga and promptly completed a second 200hr, “Expand Your Power,” which was her first, of many Baptiste trainings. Shortly after, she completed Baptiste Institute’s Level One. In 2018 she started a year long Advanced Teacher Training with WVPY to complete her 500hr certification.
As a WVPY instructor, Jill’s classes are deceptively challenging while taught with compassion and energy. With a background in Developmental Studies and Sociology, Jill’s approach to yoga is one that honors the need for individual self-study with the aim of improving interpersonal relations and building community.
Jill feels the fullest when given the chance to empower others and intends to do that through each yoga class she teaches. When she isn't teaching yoga, you can find her with her two rescue pups, Hank and Harriet, working with students at her day-job as an Elementary School Wellness Educator, or DIYing home projects with her husband, Matt.
