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. Her style of teaching is Iyengar-inspired, mindful flow-yoga. She has also taught Yin, Restorative, Gentle, and Chair Yoga.
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.”
