Having heard about all of the physical benefits of yoga, Jill was originally drawn to the practice as a way to diversify her normal workout routine. Growing up playing soccer competitively, she immediately sought to “get good” at yoga and was met with frustration when she felt that expectation wasn’t being met. However, she was determined and stuck with it and yoga soon became something much bigger for her. She realized that “getting good” was not what yoga is about and that refining the physical postures is only just scratching the surface of what the practice has to offer. For Jill, yoga is an opportunity to tune in to how the body, breath, and mind are all interconnected. It inspires her and enables her to build awareness while cultivating strength, stability, and space.
Looking to further commit to and share a practice she loves so much, she completed her 200 hour teacher training at South Boston Yoga with David Vendetti and Todd Skoglund. As a yoga instructor, her classes are vinyasa style built on safe and effective sequences. She encourages students to think about what each pose feels like rather than what it looks like, and to tune in to their body and breath in order to tune out those unwanted thoughts and feelings.
