Jillian’s twenty-year career in developing fragrance and bath products, has contributed to a deepened awareness and appreciation of all of the senses. She incorporates this sensory and intuitive approach into all aspects of her teaching as a means to provide a holistic environment to create balance from within. The journey of weaving all of these aspects together for herself and for others has been a joyful process. She began practicing yoga at Crunch gym with Sharon Gannon. Now an E-RYT and Advanced Certified Jivamukti 800-Hour Yoga Teacher, she has been teaching at The Jivamukti Yoga New York Center since 2003. In 2005, she received additional Prenatal Yoga certifications with Gurmukh, and, in 2009, completed Urban Zen’s Integrative Yoga therapy program which incorporates Yoga therapy, Aromatherapy, Reiki and Breath Awareness techniques. Jillian also supervises the Yoga therapy program at Beth Israel Hospital. She was born in New York City and received her B.A. in French and Business from the University of Vermont.
