Jill has been a practitioner of yoga for over 12 years, teaching since 2009, and is co-owner of Yoga Loft Chicago. As the CEO of a corporate recruiting firm, she desperately needed some balance in her life. A running injury and the advice of a close friend brought her to her first yoga class which happened to be an Ashtanga, 2 hour practice!
She immediately gravitated towards the athleticism required, felt a sense of mental clarity and relaxation that lasted long after class and has been a dedicated student ever since.
She is a Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher (E-RYT) and has received additional in depth training in the Full Primary Series of Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa Yoga, and Hatha. She teaches a powerful and vigorous flow as well as some open level classes inspired by the Ashtanga/Vinyasa system of Yoga.
Jill does not believe there is only one approach to yoga; we are all different and will be touched by the power of yoga when it is right time for each of us. As eternal students we are constantly adapting but once we find yoga it will likely become an integral part of our existence and overall well being.
Jill practices Mysore and meditation daily.
