    Jill’s major yoga influences have been Baron Baptiste, Stacy Dockins and Philip Urso. Jill still believes that yoga can be a full-body workout, but it doesn’t have to be fast paced.

  • Claire
    Claire

    After retiring from competitive swimming after 10 years Claire found herself struggling to find a workout regimen outside of the pool. With her mom, Lori Brady, being an experienced group fitness instructor she was no stranger to trying out numerous classes and formats, but nothing seemed to click. Frustrated with her inability to find a workout routine that suited her style she stumbled into her first yoga class at the age of 16. And just like that it clicked. In the summer of 2017 Claire took the leap and entered her first RYT200  teacher training, and was forever changed. Learning skills such as breathing, moving with intention, and calming her mind on her mat quickly evolved to much more off her mat as well. Claire is a strong believer that everyone can and should do yoga because of its countless mind and body benefits. She guarantees that you’ll leave her classes with a smile on your face and a calmness in your heart and mind. If Claire isn’t practicing or teaching you can find her snuggling with her kitten Senna, snowboarding, or in class as she is still working on her bachelors of arts in business management at North Central college.

  • Paulina
    Paulina

    Health and fitness has always been a big part of my life.  I first became involved with yoga almost 5 years ago and I loved the way yoga helped me grow stronger, not just physically, but also mentally, both on and off the mat.  Yoga truly inspires me to live each moment more mindfully.

    I completed yoga training with Jill Griffith who has been one of my biggest inspirations and helped me fall in love with yoga.  In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help deepen your connection with yoga.  I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing their body, mind and soul with yoga.

    Off the mat, I love to spend time with my four beautiful children and husband. Our weekends are always filled with sporting events, family cookouts and playing board games.

    My goal as a yoga teacher is that you always step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.
