Jill Reeves, Instructor/Owner
Founder, head teacher, and creative lead of Happy Now Yoga, Jill Reeves is a certified adult and children’s yoga instructor with YogaFit, supported by the Yoga Alliance. During her sixteen year career as a Director of Tour and Travel at the Hotel Washington and Ford’s Theater in Washington, DC, Jill started practicing yoga in the early 1990’s when she found it to be the perfect combination of her dance, theater, musical, and athletic backgrounds. For many years, she has taught yoga, aerobics, modern and international dance for various age groups.
Previously, Jill had the privilege of traveling for two years around the world in the international performing group Up With People, where she performed as a cast dancer and singer and later was hired as a dance instructor and choreographer for the Up With People cast.
Incorporating the arts into her teaching comes easily since Jill has played the piano, acted in theater, and sung since age five. In high school, she began her study of Modern, Jazz, and Ballet Dance, and later continued her studies at the College of Wooster, Wooster, Ohio, with specific emphasis in the Martha Graham technique. She has choreographed and taught dance for students.
Jill is married, has boy/girl twins, and lives in the foothills of Sugarloaf Mountain in Comus, Maryland.
