Jillian began practicing hot yoga in 2007, to relieve chronic back pain associated with her scoliosis. While initially seeking increased flexibility and pain relief, Jillians consistent physical practice of yoga has lead her to experienced many other unexpected health benefits which have included an improved ability to deal with stress, healthier digestion and eating patterns, along with more restful sleep patterns.
Seeking to learn from the most renowned leaders in the industry initially led Jillian to study with Jimmy Barkan, with whom she trained in the Barkan Method of Hot Yoga. To advance her knowledge in the study of body movement and mechanics, Jillian sought the guidance of Jill Miller, of Yoga Tune Up®, gaining certifcation as a Yoga Tune Up® instructor.
With a never ending desire to continue her studies in the practice of yoga, Jillian has continued to increase her knowledge and practice through studying under Dana Flynn of laughing Lotus NYC, Sadie Nardini of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, Cyndi Lee of OM Yoga, and Seane Corn.
Jillian brings her passion, playful nature, and love of music to every class. Her students learn to move in a way that will align their body and mind, both on and off the mat.
