We have a multiple discipline at our studio ranging from Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Core Yoga, and Restorative. Helping you find the goal of yoga is something they stride for! So rest easy and begin your yoga journey.
Yoga has been in my life for ten plus years. While practicing various styles of Yoga, one caught my attention and that was Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga Yoga provided me a powerful mind and body experience. I began practicing daily and that practice turned into a desire to teach yoga and share my passion.
I completed my 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Training at Ally Ford’s Teacher Training. I am very grateful to have had a mentor in my journey while as both a student and a teacher.
I like to have fun and practice vigorous sequences focusing on core and power flows. I am a fun and loving spirit that hopes to inspire you as well as to encourage you. In my class, I hope you leave feeling rejuvenated and nourished.
Jill Jordan teaches yoga with an emphasis on finding ease in movement. She has been practicing yoga since 1976 and is a 200 Hour Certified Yoga Teacher, but is currently working on her 500 Hour certification in the Kripalu style. Having trained with many wonderful instructors her style has been influenced by all of them over the years. Constantly expanding her knowledge of yoga, realizing that even in an entire lifetime one could never know everything about yoga.
Her classes bring connection to the breath and the body to allow more mind/body awareness. Believing that yoga should be accessible to all she encourages the use of props when needed and adjustment of the body to work with the pose. She always teaches with music and prefers low lighting and serene spaces.
As a former studio owner, Jill is flexible when teaching, often teaching with various age groups and different levels of yoga knowledge. The passion Jill has for yoga is directly linked to her trust that yoga can help all to find more peace within their bodies and patience in their hearts. It is only by taking care of our bodies that we can fully enjoy the journey of life. By combining alignment and self-awareness students can find a path to healing. Her goal is to welcome everyone to the mat so they may rediscover joyful living through a gentle practice.
