Opening the door to the internal experience, deepening self-care practices, restoring balance to the nervous system, investigating where science and spirit meet - this is what lights me up. I’m Jill Douglas and I am teacher and healer with a passion for health, wholeness, and balance that’s contagious. I went to my first meditation class as an 11 year old kid. This introduction cracked opened the door to spirit, and all that resides beneath the surface. This ignited a life-long love of spirituality , yoga, and holistic health care. I bring together yogic philosophy, structural integrity, mindful movement, and a deep reverence and awareness for the world within through the practice of yoga and integrative body work. All levels of students are welcome in my classes as I aim to meet individual needs through creative sequencing, postural variations and accommodations, and skillful hands on adjustments. Join me and experience a climate of acceptance and self-care that will empower you to take control of your own growth and healing.
As a veteran teacher and healing arts practitioner with more than a decade of experience, I am Yoga Alliance certified at the 500 hour E-RYT level in Interdisciplinary Yoga from the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. I’m also certified in Pre-natal yoga and children’s yoga. I’m a Florida State Licensed and Nationally Certified Massage therapist. My body work specialties are integrative Swedish massage, Craniosacral therapy, Pranassage ( a version of Thai yoga massage), and Reiki. My work is steeped in the belief that the power of healing lies within each one of us. My job as a teacher and healer is to encourage and initiate the process of connecting to our bodies’ inherent wisdom, our ability to heal, and to assist in the infinite process of letting go into the space where the nervous system can restore balance and begin the true healing process of mind-body integration . I love training yoga teachers, leading retreats throughout the United States and Central America, as well as creating and facilitating transformational workshops. I spend my time nurturing my family, cooking, traveling, finding ways to fuel my learning fire, and striving to illuminate the path for myself and others.
