About Jillian:

Overwhelmed by anxiety attacks and bouts of depression, Jill came to yoga in her early twenties looking for peace. Immediately, she connected deeply with the philosophy and physical practice and soon realized that nothing else could do for her what yoga did for her body, mind, heart and soul. To this day, 10 years later, she credits yoga with changing her life.

Jill graduated from her 200 hr teacher training in 2008 and then from a 500 hour advanced teacher training with emphasis in yoga therapy in 2009. She has been teaching in many different styles since then in her hometown of Fresno, California and where she is now based in San Francisco.

In her classes at Community Hostel, she incorporates basic hatha yoga posturing with an ashtanga-vinyasa-style flow, sure to lift your energy with breath and drown your stress in sweat. With a cheerful spirit and a deliberate approach, Jill is inspired to share with the world the many ways that yoga can change a life!
