Jill Perry is the founder of Tree of Life Yoga. After spending 25+ years in the insurance and financial services fields, Jill opened ToLY as a result of experiencing personal transformation from a yoga practice that provided relief from chronic back pain as well as managing stress. Jill has years of teaching experience during her years in a corporate environment and also studied and taught group fitness classes, spiritual texts and studies, as well as providing insurance education and Continuing Education to colleges.

As a result of her belief that yoga and holistic fitness is for every body and everybody, she set about building a center that offers classes suitable for all levels of yoga, beginner to advanced, as well as meditation, barre, Pilates, Ayurveda, personal training, private and small-group instruction. Coming from a place of her years of experience in corporate training and as an adjunct instructor she developed and teaches, along with a staff of six experienced and well-educated yogis, both 200 and 500 Hour Yoga Alliance certification programs, as well as developing and teaching continuing education for yoga teachers, workshops, series classes, and master classes.

Jill’s public classes offer a blend of flow, meditation, pranayama, and a connection to Self. She loves teaching students who are seeking to go deeper into their practice.

Jill Perry instructs the following:
  • Light Soul Flow Down

  • This class starts with a light-to-moderately paced flow to build internal heat to open and warm the body in preparation for postures with longer holds. The flow is followed by a combination of yin and restorative postures designed to open and release. Accessible for most levels. Some yoga experience recommended.

  • Hearts Ablaze!

  • Easy-Like-Sunday-Morning Flow

  • This class focuses on gently awakening the body, mind, and spirit through a variety of postures that are linked to the breath. The light-to-moderate playful flow is slow and meditative, fluid and heart-opening and builds internal warmth. The flow is followed by sequencing to continue to open and release. Just the right thing for starting off Sunday. New-to-yoga and advanced practitioners are welcome; yoga experience recommended. Accessible for most levels; intermediate intensity.

  • Flying Restorative Yoga

  • Flying Restorative Yoga uses the silks and is gentle, meditative, and utilizes slow transitions. This approach is perfect for those with a lower fitness level or those who enjoy a class that gives you time to tune in at a deeper level. It offers accessibility to students with physical limitations and and compliments any practice by allowing the gentle opening of the hips and spine. No complete inversions are done. For your safety and the silk’s longevity, no jewelry or zippers.

  • Flying Yoga

    This Aerial flow class is done on the silks and uses Flying Yoga – Series A as the basic structure of the class. It will take you on a journey of a flow class utilizing a yoga hammock to elevate you off the floor. Classic yoga poses will be explored and time will be given to work on perfecting your postures. Pace will be set for frequent flyers.

    Clients must wear t-shirts with sleeves and pants below the knee. For the protection of the fabric and the student, no jewelry or zippers may be worn.

  • Aerial Basics

  • Take your practice from the ground to the air! This 2-week class is designed for those who are new to Aerial Yoga but may feel overwhelmed at the idea of jumping into a class. You will learn how to stay safe in the hammock, how the hammock moves with you, and the basic moves that you will encounter in many of our Aerial/Flying Yoga classes. Vignettes of Flying Yoga – Series A will be introduced and practiced with each class featuring a different section of A. As we work our way towards savasana, you’ll wonder what kept you from doing Aerial Yoga sooner.
