Bennu yoga is owned and operated by Jana Hill. Jana certified as a yoga teacher in 2012, completing her 200-hour training at Pacific Yoga in Seattle, Wash. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), with a specialization in suspensory movement (inspired by training from Theresa Elliott), and the body’s response to instability in a pose. Her past professional life includes writing, editing, including an indepth guide on yoga for breast cancer survivors and patients. She has also worked in dementia-care and fitness instruction, managed a thrift store department to support that dementia-care program, and volunteered for public, karate, and ballet schools in the Stanwood-Camano community. In spring of 2018, she began work in a physical therapy setting, as a PT Aide and Exercise Specialist.
Jana has taught all over Snohomish County, in studios, gyms, workplaces, community centers, and private homes. She has taught a variety of styles, and in 2019 narrowed it down to her two true loves: flow-yoga and Yin.
Jana practices yoga when traveling, tracking down new yoga experiences at every opportunity. She considers herself honored every time she gets a chance to teach, and is known to sometimes announce during a class, while gazing at a roomful of asanas: “Wow, this is just like watching a sunset.”
