a message from jill

One of the reasons I love the early morning practice so much is the quiet. The still, silent space for reflection. It's not like my house is situated on I-40, but as the sun climbs ever higher, the volume of life increases in equal measure. More cars on the road and more humans on the sidewalk. Kids playing, sirens, construction- all of the sounds of life. The quiet is sacred, precious, short-lived. Even as I write this, part of me wants to go upstairs and turn off the dryer, because the tumble-tumble-tumble is adding more noise to my already chatty brain. And what I really want to hear is the birds in my backyard. The windchimes on my front porch. The rise and fall of my breath.

happy 12th, blue!

last call for Iceland Retreat + Adventure

Journey with Jill & Kristina March 16-23, 2019  

It's not too late! There are two remaining spots to join Jill & Kristina for a once-in-a-lifetime Icelandic adventure in majestic, magical Iceland!       
Along with daily yoga practices, we will adventure into the diverse landscape of the north: a truly awesome expanse of wilderness with glacial waterfalls, lava fields, volcanic hot springs, and of course the mystical northern lights. Also included are hiking excursions,  meals, and personal time to retreat.
Journey with us and be reminded that the light around us is but a reflection of the light within.
