Jill came to yoga to heal what she often called irritatingly persistent knee injuries. It was the same knee, but different injuries each time. ("Well, thankfully it's not my good one" was her mantra.) But as her knee healed and she could once again stomp without a limp, other aspects of her life become more aligned and easier as well. A lightness in step crossed over to what one of her favorite authors would refer to as a lightness of being. In that regard, Jill absolutely believes in and is grateful for the healing power of yoga.
But she also believes, first and foremost, that yoga should be a safe and judgment-free zone where people can have fun and make their practices their own. Every body is different, and no pose looks the same. Every person comes to yoga for a different reason. And as such, Jill frequently says, "It's just yoga, y'all." If a yogi wants to spend an hour in Savasana, she absolutely would not care.
