I am most passionate about helping others truly take care of their bodies, minds and spirits. I offer a unique style of yoga that is heavily based in biomechanics and alignment and uses props to support your practice.
I offer small group classes at Rise Yoga & Wellness in Golden, CO as well as Online over Zoom.
I also offer Private yoga lessons in person at the studio in Golden or virtually over Zoom.
I have been a Physical Therapist for 19 years working with athletes, general orthopedics, women's health, joint replacement, spinal issues, scoliosis and ergonomics.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher, RY200 + additional course work in Restorative Therapy and Matwork Pilates.
I have also held a consistent movement and somatic based meditation practice for 19 years.
I work 1:1 with you to get clear on what is most important to you and how you want to develop your yoga or movement practice.
The one on one instruction with private lessons to provide an optimal and meaningful experience for the student.
Small group classes that enable me to provide adjustments (verbal or tactile) to students ensuring proper alignment to promote stability and prevent injury. There is a strong feeling of community in my classes. Everyone knows one another and there is a welcoming and inclusive feeling to the studio and classes.
Jill was very thorough in her exam and exercise she wanted me to do!
I started taking Jill's online class at the time Covid hit. My job had changed and it was the most stressed I've ever been. The TRANSFORM class style and Jill kept my sanity together at this pivotal time. She brought me back to my core, calmed my mind, and I had some intense spiritual moments that were priceless. I can't say enough about the gifts that Jill brings to her classes. She blends movement, psychology, yoga, and intention. It's is a rare type of class and a true gem!
Jill is so skilled as a yoga teacher and her knowledge of physical therapy has been an added asset in my healing from hip surgery and being able to tailor my yoga program to prepare for another upcoming surgery with advice from my Physical Therapist. Her smaller class size really makes it possible for her to individualize! Love her!
Jill is a wonderful communicator and is such a wise healer. She has really helped me get a good understanding and grasp what is happening in my body and how to help me feel better.

I have been teaching since a very young age. I was a swim instructor in my teens and early college years. My professional job as a physical therapist involves teaching as my primary focus. I love educating people about their bodies and helping them to get empowered to take ownership over their own health.
Athletes, women (pregnant and post partum), seniors, children, people with work related injuries, people with neurological conditions (Parkinson's Disease/ MS) and people of all ages. I have also worked a lot with people who have had joint replacements return to full activity.
I recently hosted a Self Care Yoga & Meditation Series for support during COVID. It provided helpful tools to take care of themselves during these stressful times and helped to foster a sense of community and connection.
What times are realistic for me to fit into my schedule so that I can attend class a regularly as I would like?
What is most important to me or what do I want to get out of my time with my practice? Some ideas are: Increase my overall strength and flexibility, learn how to use my yoga practice to manage stress, learn about my body or get empowered to take control of my health and my wellbeing or to have more community support.
