Jill started yoga in a dusty church hall in 1999 after an injury. She loved it and went on to become a teacher of Iyengar yoga in 2007 and is now qualified to Senior 3 Level. She has made numerous trips to Pune in India (the home of Iyengar Yoga) to be taught by Mr Iyengar, his daughter, son and granddaughter. Jill is a fully qualified Yoga Therapist, Teacher trainer and mentor for trainees and existing teachers. She is passionate that yoga classes should be uplifting and enjoyable and for the last 5 years has been the Chair of Iyengar Yoga UK, our national organisation, promoting the yoga which we love. And now stepping down in May 2021 has allowed time for the dream that is Cheshire Yoga to come to fruition.
Andrea attended her first yoga class in 1999, starting in the same class as Jill, and was instantly hooked on yoga. Having continued yoga through 3 pregnancies, she was Jill’s first student in 2007. Andrea was mentored by Jill to start teacher training and qualified as a Level 1 teacher in 2013. Teaching yoga has been a joy for Andrea (and fitted in well around a young family!) Andrea qualified as a Level 2 teacher in 2019 and with the kids growing up, it was the right time for Cheshire Yoga with her long-standing yoga buddy, Jill.
