“My love, gratitude and curiosity for yoga will always be a big part of my life.”
It began with a suggestion from a good friend “Yoga could help your back pain” while having a Friday night glass of wine after a long week, so off to the local hall I went for a Hatha Yoga class.
Not knowing what this entailed I was about to become a Mountain, Warrior, Triangle, Downward Dog and a Fish just to mention a few of the postures I performed that evening, I was very busy as you can imagine, then came Corpse pose 5 minutes of rest, Yes please!
What I do remember the most about my 1st class in 1995 was the sense of warmth and belonging somewhat akin to a small community. Later that evening walking back to my car I knew I had come across something very special and that I would be back for more and I was.
Fast forward to 2021 and I still love practising and teaching yoga!
Becoming a yoga teacher
My enjoyment of this ancient practice has seen me complete teacher training in different practices of yoga and from these learnings, I have blended a Gentle Flow class which I love to teach.
I have also attended Yoga workshops and Masterclasses taught by many accomplished teachers.
Jillian’s yoga practice
I have been fortunate through yoga to experience many wonderful and funny occasions with amazing human beings, the opportunity to teach and attend Retreats in Western Australia and Bali.
My love, gratitude and curiosity for yoga will always be a big part of my life.
I hope our yoga mats will meet soon!
