I discovered yoga in my mid-20’s while living in a tiny cabin on an island off the coast of Washington state. 12 years later, after completing my graduate degree in Environmental Science, the challenges of job searching led me back to the mat. I always felt connected to Iyengar yoga; I loved the precision of the instructions and how each class felt like a journey where I discovered something new. In 2015, I took on ownership of the AHA studio. I’m grateful to be part of a wonderful community of yoga students & teachers. I am a Junior 1 certified Iyengar yoga teacher and offer ongoing classes, short courses on special topics and private lessons.

Jill is the founder of Ancient Healing Arts Yoga studio, the longest running yoga studio in the Upper Valley. In 2015, she decided to focus more of her energy on teaching and her practice and turned the running of the studio over to Kerry Doyle. She has been practicing yoga in the Iyengar tradition since 1988 and currently studies regularly with Patricia Walden. She has also studied with Janice Vien, Peentz Dubble, Jyoti Hansa, H.S. Arun and Ramanand Patel.
Jill has been to Pune, India six times to study with the Iyengar family and assist in the Medical Class. She has been a physical therapist since 1984 with specialties in Geriatrics and Women’s Health. She enjoys combining her physical therapy knowledge with her love of yoga in teaching classes, privates and workshops.
Kristin is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. She began her study of yoga in 2000 shortly after competing in the USA Track and Field Olympic Trials. She completed a 2 year teacher training program with Janice Vien and continues to study regularly with Janice and Jill Johnson. Coming to Yoga as a competitive athlete, Kristin delights in teaching the physical benefits of the practice. She is interested in helping students obtain and maintain stability and flexibility (in mind and body!) thru life. Her practice and teaching are supported by a vibrant local community and fortified through her travels to participate in workshops with Senior Iyengar teachers around the country.
