Jillian’s professional management experience revealed that she derived the greatest satisfaction from teaching, mentoring, and positively impacting people’s lives.
Her experience in such activities as distance running and bootcamp make her a unique instructor when it comes to Pilates and yoga. She combines her various fitness modalities to design programs specific to her clients, helping them reach their goals.
Jillian came to yoga ten years ago as a way to balance her participation in endurance sports. As a result, she was happy to find herself experiencing fewer injuries. In yoga Jillian also found continuing challenges, as well as the meditative aspect that spoke to her own spiritual journey. In Maui, Jillian completed her 200 RYT in ZFlow Yoga, power flow yoga developed and taught by Zeek Vincent, 500 E-RYT. Jillian also has a specialization in Yin yoga and senior yoga. She is a member of Yoga Alliance. She has organized and taught yoga and health and wellness at various events and conventions all around the Las Vegas valley and on the Las Vegas strip. She is currently working on her 500 RYT certification studying with Jason Crandell.
With an interest in rehabilitation and avid about fitness, Jillian added Pilates to her repertoire. Pilates has contributed to her own fitness regime, improving her performance in both crossfit and running. Jillian is fully certified in the Pilates Comprehensive Method. The Pilates Method Alliance is the preeminent professional association for the Pilates field, and Jillian is also certified as a NC-PT. Additionally she is an Ace Fitness certified personal trainer and certified in Barre Fusion. She likes to incorporate the low-impact aspects of yoga and Pilates into cross-training and brings this combination of modalities to her classes and one-on-one sessions.
Jillian took over Pilates + Yoga four years ago after it had been in business for eight years. She has grown the staff and class schedule and brought her passion for keeping seniors active with starting a senior yoga program.
Jillian has been inspired by the insight and guidance of her own yoga and Pilates teachers, as well as the members of the community. She brings this focus and enthusiasm to Pilates + Yoga, where she continues to help you reach your fitness goals.
