Jill A. Thomas, owner and director of Kalitrea Yoga Studio Inc., has been teaching yoga since 1997, and was certified from Moksha Yoga Center, Chicago, in 1998. Shortly following teacher training she registered with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (R.Y.T.) with the 200 hour level requirements. In 2012, Jill applied for and was granted the registration of E-R.Y.T., the designation of experienced teacher, with over 1000 hours of teaching. She has been practicing yoga regularly for over 20 years. Her teaching draws from many styles and disciplines and is guided by her primary teacher Gabriel Halpern from the Yoga Circle in Chicago, an Iyengar tradition school. Jill’s teaching style incorporates fun while learning alignment, anatomy, body awareness, and the philosophy of yoga. She has studied with other teachers including Gary Kraftsow – Viniyoga style, Lilias Folan, Paul Grilley -Yin Yoga, Scott Blossom, Bo Forbes, PsyD, and Julie Gudmestad, P.T., a physical therapist/yoga teacher from the Iyengar tradition, as well as many more. She has completed a study course in cancer exercise and was granted a certificate as a Cancer Exercise Specialist (C.E.S.). Both of Jill’s parents experienced cancer in their lifetimes so there is a strong interest to assist others in their recovery. Jill also has a passion for organization and simplification, and is currently studying and implementing minimalism and the zero waste/plastic free movement.
