Nine years ago, Jill Knouse left the corporate world behind to pursue her love of yoga full-time. She is passionate about sharing the beauty of Vinyasa Yoga. Jill joyfully creates powerful and flowing sequences, linked together by breath and great intention. Her mindful teaching style naturally leads students to a state of strength, balance, flexibility and overall well-being. While Jill's classes may be challenging, she makes them accessible to everyone. Jill strives to support her students in cultivating a devoted practice infused with immense joy.
Jill has completed and led numerous teacher trainings. In 2012, she successfully launched a mentorship program for new yoga teachers called Elevate Yoga Trainings. She is a dedicated teacher determined to help her students discover what makes them feel truly ALIVE. As a practicing massage therapist, anatomy, safe alignment, loads of hands-on assists and nurturing support are a huge part of her classes. She teaches at a handful of wonderful studios in Portland, Oregon, leads trainings + workshops, participates in conferences + festivals and leads incredible group yoga adventures twice a year! Jill’s enthusiasm, intuition and inspiration pour from her heart and into every one of her classes and trainings.
