Jill Chism -Movement 4 AWARENESSYoga Instructor and Artist

​   
Jill Chism is a practicing YOGI with 20 years of experience under a range of different teachers.
She has a Master of Creative Arts as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Theology and a teaching degree. Jill is also a professional artist.

Since age 21 Jill has been committed to a spiritual practice and maintaining ‘awareness’. She understands the need, in this complex world, for integrating mind and spirit. She is particularly aware that through our increased use of Information and Communication Technologies and our primarily sedentary lives, that we have become disconnected from our breath and our bodies: that focus on these aspects is necessary for our journey to wholeness.

Jill’s teaching style is tailored to the individual although she also understands that it is the client’s responsibility to tend to their health. Her advice is that clients should not experience pain or contraindicate their health by any of the suggested movements or exercises, as this is not beneficial and can be dangerous.

Movement4Awareness sessions cater for experienced and inexperienced yoga and fitness clients as the situation presents. Jill’s mantra is that ‘all that matters is the present moment’, not what we’ve done in the past or about to do in the future. That by aligning ourselves with the present moment we step into the vertical dimension of Spirit and out of the linear/ horizontal time-based experience, in which we mostly tread. Being present we simply engage with the vitality of movement and breath and not with conceptual expectations of our self and others.
