Lexington, KY, United States
YTU Training Type: 
Yoga Tune Up® Certification Training
Jill took her first yoga class in 2003, but did not start a consistent practice until years later when she found herself feeling unhealthy in her life as a mom to a medically fragile daughter.   Through a consistent yoga practice and completion of a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course, she found a deep connection and love of the practices of yoga and mindfulness, both on and off the mat.   These practices helped her achieve strength and acceptance, and the space to find understanding in the gift she was given through her relationship with her greatest teacher, her daughter.  
Concurent to her yoga parctice, Jill has expereinced the benefits of strength training at a local gym with an amazing trainer.  Deadlifting, kettlebells and resistance band have taught her as much about her body and breath as yoga!  Maintaining a healthy and able body is intergral to her role as caregiver to her daughter and she hopes to help others find the ways that their bodies can be assetts to their lives. 
She completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training course at Solid Roots Yoga in 2016 and in 2019, became a certified instructor with the internationally recognized Yoga Tune Up® program.  Jill’s classes integrate strengthening movement, breath and stillness in a joyful and encouraging environment.  She  believes that yoga is an integral part to finding your way through the clutter of our modern world and into a spacious life with more ease and contentment. 
When not in the yoga studio, you can find Jill at the gym, running races with her family or spending time outdoors.
