As Jill continues her personal journey, she uses the practice of meditation and stillness to listen to the voice of her soul for guidance. She is consistently called to the study of energy and its relationship in healing the body, physically, spiritually and mentally. She is a certified Reiki practitioner and often uses her healing touch and intuition in her classes. She is an avid reader and continues to educate herself through self-study as well as attending workshops at Kripalu as well as embarking on spiritual journeys around the country.
Jill prides herself on integrating an energetic power flow class with the ability to get students to stay present and tune in to the mind-body connection. Her personal goal in all of her classes is to get students to walk off their mats, not with just a great work-out, but a deeper sense of who they are, with all of their strengths and vulnerabilities, and to instill a sense of community amongst her students, all while having a little bit of fun!
Rachel Stine holds her 200 CYT in Hatha Yoga from Sundari Yoga and is certified in Pre-Natal and Kids Yoga. In addition, she holds her Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education. Bringing cheer and light to her environment, Rachel is attracted to both the physical and spiritual elements of yoga; she feels the practice guides her to inner peace and strength and she naturally extends that element to her students.
Currently, Rachel is fulfilling her 300hr Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Loft in Bethlehem, Pa. She is also pursuing her Masters Degree in Public Health to further her knowledge of health and the human body, and to continue to assist students.
For Gina, the Vinyasa quality of "moving mediation," coupled with her daily seated meditation, allows her to center herself when her world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Gina feels that Yoga has opened her eyes to see the person within, who she really is. Her practice helped her to find herself at a time when she felt lost. Gina believes that human nature is an important aspect of teaching yoga and a path to gain insight into others as well as one’s self by giving and receiving (sharing) the gift of yoga.
In addition to yoga, Gina has an extensive interest in things that make the world culturally diverse and intrinsically reachable for the individual. She has a big love for the arts; dancing, photography and painting; often examining the deeper meaning behind brush strokes, the artist and the culture or history that arose from a certain piece.
Gina holds her BA in Fine Arts, from Saint Joseph’s University. In the future, she plans to continue her education and receive her Masters Degree in Nutrition.
