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 twelve 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. Furthering her education in practice in the height of the pandemic, Jillian took the opportunity to complete her 300 RYT with Jason Crandell (known as “the teacher’s teacher”), thus certifying her as a 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.
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 a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NC-PT), fully certified by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), the preeminent professional association for the Pilates field. She currently leads the comprehensive teacher training certification program at Pilates + Yoga Pilates, which meets the requirements of the PMA.
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 five years ago after it had been in business for seven years. She brought her passion for keeping seniors active by starting a senior yoga program. She has not only grown the schedule and the number of instructors, but also the community. She has hosted events such as holiday parties, as well as workshops and events for special interests, such as manifestation, essential oils, chakras, astrology, and other topics of interest to the community.
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.
