Veteran teacher Jill Abelson found yoga through a lifelong interest in “all things spiritual” and decades of studying classical dance. Her one-of-a-kind classes blend the spiritual energy of her Jivamukti roots with creative sequencing, challenge (you will sweat!), thoughtful alignment, and transformative hands-on assists. She trained with David Swenson, Shiva Rea, and Kripalu’s Stephan Cope and Michael Carroll before finding her forever home with Jivamukti Yoga. Her primary teachers today are Sharon Gannon and David Life, Vaisesika Dasa, and Lee Wei Chao of Alonzo King’s Lines Dance Center. Jill has been on Yoga Tree’s staff since 2009, teaching at Castro, Hayes, and Valencia and on the core faculty of Yoga Tree’s 200- and 500-Hour Teacher Training programs since 2012.
