Jill Hines is one of the founders and directors of Ebb and Flow Yoga Studio. She draws upon a lifetime of experience seeking out mind/ body connections through her personal yoga practice, a deep love for dance, body work, and meditation… not to mention her thousands of hours teaching yoga, attending workshops, trainings and certifications in yoga, massage therapy, group fitness, pilates and barre. Her love for the body, anatomy and functional movement pave the way for mindfully crafted and carefully designed classes. Her own experience with personal injury, her son’s diagnosis of the auto immune disease type one diabetes and years of working with clients needing a unique approach to their yoga practice has shaped the way she constructs her classes. When she first started teaching she was drawn to power vinyasa and it’s sweaty, energetic vibe. Lately she is pulled in a more therapeutic direction helping students with pain management, arthritis, brain and spinal injuries, visual impairment, joint mobility issues, grief, loss, and depression. You will find the space Jill creates to be warm, inviting and approachable.
Off the mat Jill loves to hike, swim, garden, go on bike rides with her two boys, snuggle and watch movies with her beautiful daughter, dance in her home studio, drink french press coffee in the early morning and go on impromptu picnics.
Jill holds certifications with yoga alliance, and AFAA and also is a massage practitioner. Jill will be traveling to Vancouver, Canada this summer to study under Bernie Clark at Semperviva Yoga.
