PRICING SCHEDULE

Jill

Bio: I’m a native New Yorker and in 2004 I moved to California to attend graduate school and become a teacher. I have been teaching Spanish at Troy High School in Fullerton since 2006. Teaching is something that I am very passionate about, so when I began practicing yoga, I knew right away that, eventually, I would want to share it with others. I was introduced to yoga in May 2015 after sustaining a severe knee injury. Before that, I was an avid runner and soccer player. After my first class, I was captivated by the practice because it was challenging as well as rewarding. Within a few weeks, I started to notice many positive changes in my health and well-being.
 
Yoga allows me to get into a meditative state of relaxation, a conscious space that teaches me about awareness. Through yoga, I operate from a grateful space, and that appreciation has made me look at myself and my life differently. For me, yoga is so much more than the pose. It’s about quieting the mind to allow it to transform you spiritually. I see yoga as a useful complement to the other aspects of my daily life, helping to restore balance to all levels.
 
Teaching Style: I believe that yoga is a tool that helps us discern who we are, and make decisions that are in service to our emotional, physical, and spiritual nourishment. To me, yoga is a quintessential act of self-care and a chance to become embodied, empowered, and more firmly grounded in who we are. I want my students to feel that empowerment and connection when they are in my class. I strive to provide a peaceful and motivating space for my students to get in touch with themselves.

Instructors sequence the asanas in more ornate and creative fashions to keep students improving and feeling challenged. Some instructors may choose to teach this class in a Vinyasa format where the poses and transitions from pose to pose are linked with a breath cue. Depending on the teacher, this class can be taught at a faster pace than the Level 1 class. Additionally, a broader range of asanas and breathing techniques are taught to increase flexibility, strength, and concentration. This class is practiced in a warm room and is appropriate for advanced beginner/intermediate students.
