Jillian Szafranski

Jillian is an LA-based instructor who offers office yoga, yoga therapy for those in recovery, energetic massage, and annual transformational yoga retreats. Her training is rooted in Alexander and Linklater Techniques which she learned while attending Emerson College in Boston. Drawing enormous inspiration from the ever-developing field of neuroscience, Jillian uses her knowledge of anatomy and somatic integration (a therapeutic technique that combines the mental, emotional, spiritual to the physical body) to craft a proprietary hands-on approach to yoga that is informed by her own experiences with physical trauma and illness to practice trauma informed yoga therapy for those in recovery. Jillian created the Yoga Therapy Program for Reasons Eating Disorder Centers as well as the Office Yoga Programs for the Los Angles Metropolitan Transportation Authority and NPR (National Public Radio).
