Jill Godwin

Jillian began her yoga journey in 2013 after the passing of her mother, Donna, from lung cancer. Yoga gave her a way to heal and redirect her grief into something beautiful and strong. Coming from a movement background, she has been dancing since age 11, 17 of those years were spent as a professional contemporary dancer with Dance Kaleidoscope in Indianapolis, Indiana. She emerged as a soloist with the company after a few short years and was named one of Indiana’s most intriguing artists in the early 2010’s. She has been teaching ballet, jazz, tap, modern, and contemporary dance since the age of 18 and is currently a full time teacher with Central Indiana Academy of Dance in Carmel, Indiana as well as Dance Kaleidoscope’s tap and adult ballet instructor. In 2012, she became certified as an aerial yoga instructor through Mindful Movement Studio, where she then taught for more than seven years. Jillian has been a strong practitioner of vinyasa yoga for the past two years and was finally able to receive her certification through the Yoga and Ayurveda Studio in Pennsylvania during the global pandemic in 2020, an online program. Her mission with teaching is to make yoga available for every body, from beginner to advanced, and for every income level, making yoga more accessible for those that may not have the financial means. Her classes are well thought out, will make you laugh, and will help you regain your sense of self and confidence.
