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 have a yoga studio in my home with a 4 station therpeutic yoga wall that provides many additional props and support to your practice.
I offer private and small group classes.
I have been a Physical Therapist for 16 years working with athletes, general orthopedics, women's health, joint replacement, spinal issues, scoliosis, ergonomics, Parkinson's, dementia, Multiple Sclerosis and seniors.
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 16 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, movement or meditation 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 is very conscious of peoples needs. She is also very compassionate and does not make you feel bad about what you cannot do. So very positive.
I have been suffering from seven different injuries which have been very aggravating, and slow to heal. I have had six personal, and eight group sessions with Jill Getty. Jill has revealed to me that I have other contributing injuries that I was not even aware of, such as an unknown issue with my neck which was causing a lot of my shoulder pain. Jill has gifted me with stretching and exercise techniques which have resulted in some rapid recovery, reduced pain, greater range of motion, and a better night’s sleep. Presently, armed with Jill’s teachings, I am doing a stretching and strengthening program at home on a daily basis with very inexpensive equipment, such as a massage roller and an assortment of different sized balls. These short workouts leave me feeling invigorated, uplifted, and enthused that I will completely recover from my injuries. I do not give out recommendations easily, however, my interactions with Jill Getty have been very uplifting and inspiring, due to her education and experience, her positive, empathetic, and fun personality, her impressive listening skills, and the fact that she introduces different techniques and teachings with each session. Our minds and body’s are so interconnected, I am truly grateful and uplifted in mind, body, and spirit because of my involvement with Transform P.T. & Yoga. Sincerely, Doug Walker
I’ve been looking for a yoga class that would help me recover from hip replacement surgery. Jill Getty’s classes are perfect because she’s both a qualified yoga instructor and a physical therapist! The small group setting equals constant personal attention, no intimidation, and quiet nurturing. Every class is different but there’s a natural progression. The incremental steps help gain confidence and increase the success of doing poses properly. The postures incorporate proper breathing, mindful movement and strength and flexibility training. I did get an additional assessment, which I recommend, because I’m able to practice exercises at home that increase my flexibility and help with my hip recovery. I’m feeling stronger and definitely would recommend Jill to others looking for healthy improvement.
Phone call to find out what you are specifically looking for with lessons.
Meet in person at my yoga studio in my home. If you would like to take yoga/pilates/strengthening lessons, I will do a full physical evaluation: Posture/ strength/flexibility and assess movement imbalances to better inform our work together and then create a yoga program specific to your body and goals.
If you are interested in meditation lessons, I will look more specifically at what you are interested in getting out of your meditation practice and together we will create a meditation program that is unique to you.

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 recently hosted 2 Winter Solstice Yoga and Meditation events to welcome and honor the slower pace of winter. This was a great event and sold out both nights. We focused on slower yoga postures, meditation and restorative yoga. It provided a good sense of groundedness for those that attended as well as an opportunity for people to get to know one another in our community.
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.
