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.

Where did you get your training/certifications? Thrive Yoga 200YTT

 

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:
  • Open Studio ($12)
  • Come play with your favorite teachers and members of the community! One of the Thrive teachers will be on hand to assist, or you can find your own space in which to flow. This intermediate-level power-hour can include everything from asana adjustments, acro yoga, aerials, and more. We are delighted to open our studio space for you to dig into the depths of your practice!

  • Vinyasa + Core - Intermediate/Advanced

    ACROVINYASA takes yoga from earth to air. Uniting elements of vinyasa, inversion training and acro-yoga, this practice cultivates trust and community in a powerful way. The core of ACROVINYASA is focused on synchronizing breath in movement, building strength and finding balance. Inspired by traditional yoga asana and L-based acrobatic flying, this progressive yoga system includes both solo and partner practice. This practice was created by YogaBeyond to inspire others to follow their bliss.

    No previous acro-yoga experience is required. Come solo or bring your friends. Expect a solo vinyasa practice, inversion training with a partner and acroyoga with the safety of a spotter.

    After completing the Intro to ACROVINYASA workshop, (Intro to AcroVinyasa is a Prerequisite to enroll in Progressions) students are invited to expand their practice with a 4-week series. Similar to a Vinyasa practice, ACROVINYASA builds on itself and allows the practioner to get creative as they link poses together-- almost like a dance. Come to learn new poses, new transitions and to have space to play and create with this progressive practice of yoga.

    Expect to HAVE FUN, to learn something new, and to strengthen your solo and partner practice.
