Jill Loftis

(540) 309-0071||https://www.uttarayogastudio.com/

Jill began practicing yoga as a way to make peace with her body after childbirth. Her true spiritual evolution began when she discovered the teachings of Goswami Kriyananda and the Temple of Kriya Yoga. Through the profound impact of extensive training through the Temple, she was able to find meaning, purpose and healing in her life, while still being fully engaged in her dharma of mothering three children.

While still in training, she began teaching at Bethany Hall, a local drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. In 2008, this work inspired her to open Uttara Yoga Studio in Roanoke, VA, with the vision to create a safe and sacred space to share the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the practice. The Uttara community has blossomed beyond her dreams into a diverse group of yoga practitioners and seekers. The Studio now includes 200- and 300-hour yoga teacher training programs, and a program to mentor new yoga teachers.  Jill radiates a fierce, nurturing presence that will challenge you to explore the limits of your body and mind, and yet feel supported and held in a safe space so you can meet yourself with honesty and an open heart. Her yoga classes weave together Kriya Yoga with her studies under many gifted yoga teachers, particularly Kim Schwartz, Gabriel Halpern, Andrea Boyd and Jeffrey Cohen.

Jill teaches yogis of all ages and has brought the practice to local preschools; elementary, middle, and high schools; as well as a number of local colleges and universities. She is a Barratt Breath Institute individual and group Restorative Breathwork practitioner. In addition to yoga classes and training yoga teachers, she leads workshops and weekend trainings on a variety of topics, including meditation, stress reduction, life transformation, and astrology. She is a practicing astrologer (check out her website, www.NuitAstrology.com) and is Adjunct Faculty at Roanoke College.  She has been the area coordinator for Seven Springs Farm, a local organic cooperative farm, since 2002.
