Jill enjoys people and sharing the transformative power of yoga. As a psychologist, the 8 limbs of yoga provide her an ethical and moral code to live by. Outside of yoga she takes pleasure in her family, bushwalking, the beach and ceramics.
Jill came to yoga during a busy time of her life, raising a family and working full-time. She was stiff, stressed and had a back injury. As she gradually became stronger and more balanced, she began to understand the transformative quality of yoga and the stillness that is possible within.
Jill holds a diploma of Yoga Teaching (350 hrs) with the IYTA . She is committed to professional development and participates in workshops, intensives and classes by senior yoga teachers, including Peter Thomson, Sarah Burns and Mark Gibson. Jill is currently working towards Iyengar teacher certification, under the supervision of Mark Gibson at DGYS in Melbourne and regularly study at the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune.
Jill tries to live by the 8 limbs of Astanga yoga and abide by the ethical and moral values and observances of the yamas and niyamas.
She teaches a balanced class across the month and within each class, with a focus on alignment. She aims to create an enjoyable environment in which students can find their centre and be grounded , with the space to observe themselves, and make connections between the mind, body and spirit.
