Jessie Hill

Describe yourself in three words: fiery, happy, passionate

Why do you teach Yoga? It only seems right. How could I keep this amazing gift all to myself?

Something surprising about you: I was a Hammer Thrower at the University of Maryland

What inspires you? Progress. It's not always a straight line: sometimes we even take a few steps backwards first. That's ok because there is never an end to yoga- it's a journey. There's always a next step, always a deeper variation- whether that's physical or just a change in perspective.

Jessie found her way to her mat after years of athletics. While she was initially drawn to the challenging asana practice, what she found was so much more than a sport replacement! Jessie loves a sweaty asana practice but equally enjoys a sweet meditation practice. Jessie looks forward to sharing her zest with others, while encouraging them to listen to their bodies and stay present.



Jessie Hill instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa + Core - Intermediate/Advanced
  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga and targeted core strengthening sets combine to stretch, build and maintain a variety of muscles from your pelvis to your shoulders. Using dynamic movement, breathing and repetitions, this class is perfect for students practicing arm balances and for cross training. Expect unique sequences and a wide range of music.

    Sweat Factor: 9
    Chill Factor: 5

    Intermediate class best suited for experienced students with a regular practice; comfortable with sequenced sets and interested in integrating various yoga techniques for a deeper experience.
