     Jill Hayes is passionate about sharing the wonderful practice of yoga! She started doing yoga in 2002 when she became pregnant with her first child.  At the time, she simply wanted gentle exercises and breathing techniques to help her feel better throughout her pregnancy, childbirth, and recovery.  After returning to work, she continued yoga to help alleviate stress and anxiety of owning and running a business, being in the public eye and being a full-time mom.  Little did Jill know, yoga would turn into a lifelong, loving practice that continues to help her today, both physically and mentally. As her children grew and began to feel the pressure of the pre-teen and teenage years, she instinctively shared yoga with them and their friends. It has become her passion and she left the business world to become a Certified Yoga Instructor. Through her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga for Teens specialized certification, Jill gained the knowledge and confidence to safely instruct both adults and teens in yoga and meditation.  Her hopes are that she can help bring strength, calmness and clarity to a very hectic and fast paced world.  Join her and begin to feel what yoga can do for you!  Namasté.

  Joe is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a 200-hour Certified Yoga Teacher, and a 26-year retired Air Force veteran. Joe developed a love and passion for Yoga after his 30 years of running abruptly ended with a knee injury.  Rather than opt for surgery, he stopped running and started practicing Yoga.  Joe says that if he hadn’t been injured and forced to stop running, he may never have slowed down enough to make room for Yoga in his life. Now, Joe highly recommends everyone to try Yoga. It has changed his life for the better, giving him a more flexible body and mind.  Yoga has also calmed his fears/doubts and given him a template for living a more satisfied life.  Joe has been practicing Yoga and Meditation for 10 years. He is a 2016 graduate of Infinite Light Yoga & Wellness Center, Jamesville, NY.  Joe has a special interest in helping the Veteran population, especially those vets struggling with PTSD, (trauma symptoms).  He has been appointed an honorary Ambassador for Veteran’s Yoga Project, with a mission of making the healing benefits of Yoga available for all Veterans.  When he’s not teaching Yoga and Meditation, Joe enjoys exercising, hiking in the Adirondacks, traveling to new destinations, and going to concerts and cultural events in beautiful Upstate N.Y.  Please join Joe for a Yoga and/or Meditation class soon!

  Denise Rose    Yoga has been a part of Denise’s life for over fifteen years.  Her love of yoga started with the physical benefits of the practice and grew into the journey of learning and exploring the concept of self-care, loving one-self and finding time to care for one-self.  Knowing there was more to yoga than the physical component, the desire for that calmness, that peace that comes to us while on the mat drove Denise to learn more about the mind, body and soul connection.  Recently graduating from the Universal 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Diane Speer at In Bloom Yoga Center, Denise is excited to share her knowledge of the physical benefits of yoga, as well as her passion of finding a moment to pause and discover the solitude, peace and joy of being on the mat.

  Kathy Bateman   Kathy began her yoga journey as a student approximately 16 years ago at Universal Yoga Center when it was located on Campion Road. She had a desire to learn more about yoga for her own personal health challenges which eventually developed into a full-blown passion to teach yoga. During this journey, she also discovered Pilates, a syle of exercises designed to strengthen a person's core and became passionate about teaching PIlates as well. In September 2005, she became Pilates Mat Certified and in February 2006 she received her Yoga Teacher Certification.
