Instructors > Jill Wojcik Pula
Jill grew up in Buffalo, NY but left after completing her Master’s Degree in Social Work from SUNY Buffalo. She was blessed with the opportunity to live in Hawaii and travel in the Pacific and Asia. Her experience opened her eyes to different cultures and spiritual practices. It stirred a deep interest and desire to learn Yoga. After she left the islands, she moved to Tennessee where she took the next step in shaping and advancing her interest in Yoga. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in the spring of 2012 in Nashville, TN with the hopes of integrating it with her past work as a child and family therapist.
The newest of roles for Jill is that of a mom. She has an amazing little man, Alexander, who has been her best teacher so far. He motivates her to want to be a better person, someone he will admire and model himself after.
Jill likes to incorporate a holistic approach into her yoga practice and teachings. She works with students to connect movement with breath, providing them space to experience yoga within their own body. Her main emphasis is to help each individual find aspects of strength, balance and acceptance within their own yogic journey.
