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:
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.
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.

Come join us for a class that will leave you refreshed for just about any New Year’s Eve activity. Enjoy a gentle and relaxing flow, postures designed for release, pranayama, mindful meditation and a ritual releasing of 2018 and a burning ceremony. All levels of yoga practitioners.
