Owner and Founder of Dharma Studio, Winchester, VA. You can usually catch Jill upside down and trying new and creative approaches to poses. She inspires many and aspires greatly. Students enjoy her detail oriented cueing and wild playlists. She is a devoted yogi, lover and supporter of the arts, aspiring guitarist and jamming harmonium hack. Teaching students to realize their potential is in her blood and bones. And her love of Yoga and its deep roots and ancient concepts are evident every time she steps on the mat.
Michelle’s Pilates journey began with finding a way to alleviate back pain caused by scoliosis. Loving the fun of Pilates as well as the study of movement and anatomy, in 2010 she became a Pilates Method Alliance certified teacher and training director. Through her understanding of the struggles associated with less than perfect anatomy, she is able to help clients improve their movement.
Christa Mastrangelo Joyce
Christa is the owner of Jala Yoga. Christa loves to share the gifts that yoga has offered her and to help each person find their own path to this joyful practice. In her classes you will sweat, gain physical strength, focus on moving with your breath, learn about anatomy and the philosophy of the yoga practice, as well as try something new and hopefully leave feeling renewed and relaxed.
The Wilkins Athletics & Events Center is a gathering space for the entire community. We welcome the community to join us for a fun event and to discover the center’s many possibilities.”
