Summer Greetings from Jill Case
I cannot believe we are already half way through summer! I hope that you all have been able to enjoy all the abundance of sun and beautiful weather. I have a lot of great announcements to share with you. Thank you for all your support in allowing me to share all my passions. I truly appreciate all of you!
August core workshop at Yoyo Yogi: Sunday, August 24th 2:30-4:30p
Core Defined: Refine and Redefine Your Center
We will take my Monday 9:30a Dynamic Core class at Yoyo Yogi a little deeper to understand how to use these "core" muscles synergistically to create suppleness and strength mindfully. We will explore all the core muscles (abs, back, psoas, pelvic floor, and diaphragm, as well as adductors and shoulders) and learn how it serves us to create less unconscious tension in this area and more conscious strength. We will also bring in the subtle ways that fostering a more supple core through integrated movement can allow us to listen more easily to our "gut instincts" and feel our natural intuitiveness. Workshop registration and event flyer is at Yoyo Yogi online.

New Location for Private Sessions
I am excited to be in a new space for private movement and intuitive energy sessions. I am now located at Starbird Women's Health located just off NW 23rd Ave. Don't let the name confuse you...men are always welcome. :) I am excited to finally be able to expand my hours and days of availability.
I am no longer teaching my Monday and Friday 12p Vinyasa classes at Root. I have met some amazing people working at Root for the short time I was there but I need to make more space in my calendar to focus on my aromatherapy and energy practice. I will also be able to sub more at Yoyo Yogi! To all of the lovely souls I was able to meet at Root, my deepest appreciation for your presence at Root. I hope to see you at my other locations.
My current schedule can be found on my website.

Find me at Yoyo Yogi a little extra this month:
Wednesdays at 5:45p for Jammin' on 8/13, 8/20 and 8/27
Thursday at 5p for Detox on 8/14
