Schedule

In 2022, my teaching schedule is a mix of virtual offerings and in-studio offerings. Head over to the Live Stream page to get information about the interactive virtual classes (Tuesdays). Registration for studio classes is managed by the respective studio.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@somerjill) for my most up-to-date schedule, including weekly substitutions and special classes/workshops.

Mixed Levels

Tuesday, 9:30a-10:45a
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous livestream)
JP Centre Yoga

This flow-based (vinyasa) styled class unites movement and form. Designed for new and experienced students alike, classes are intended to be vigorous, yet made accessible with a variety of options within poses. Expect to engage in dynamic movement with integrated deep, long holds. This style of yoga builds core power, stretches, strengthens and cleanses the body, and offers the opportunity for deep healing and release. Our intent in all our classes is to build a non-competitive environment where students are invited to move at their own pace.

Tender Tuesday Basics Flow

Tuesday, 5:30-6:45p
virtual + interactive
sign up: SomerJill Live 2022

A slower paced class, punctuated with a handful of vinyasas. Great for folks new to yoga, or returning practitioners. A mix of standing, seated, prone, and supine shapes, usually tethered to an anatomical or philosophical theme. It’s tender, so expect a focus on self-care and some time for restorative shapes.

All Levels Flow

Tuesday, 7:30-8:30p
in person at studio
MOTA Somerville

A moderately paced vinyasa class structured around a particularly shape or anatomical action. Opportunities to dial up or dial down depending on the student’s experience level.

COVID-19 Protocols: MOTA follows City of Somerville guidelines and mandates. As of January 15, 2022, students are required to provide proof of vaccination. All teachers and students are required to wear masks within the building. MOTA is equipped with an air purifier, and provides hand sanitizer for all.

Advanced Vinyasa

Wednesday, 6:00-7:15p
in-person at studio
MOTA Somerville

A briskly paced vinyasa class that will lead practitioners toward variations of postures beyond the ordinary. Chances to work binds, arm balances, inversions, and strength-intensive holds. Time and space to practice vinyasa transitions (such as jump-backs and jump-throughs). Maybe some sweat and definitely some fun.

Vinyasa (Heated)

Thursday, 4:30-6:00p
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous livestream)
Be in Union

A moderately paced “happy hour” vinyasa class structured around a particularly shape or anatomical action. Most sessions will begin with a handful a sun salutations. Opportunities to dial up or dial down depending on the student’s experience level. In-studio yogis will be practicing in a heated room, 85-95 degrees.

Heated Flow

Thursday, 7:00-8:15p
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous livestream)
JP Centre Yoga

Much like the Mixed Levels classes, this vinyasa based class balances effort, awareness and breath. Heating the room to match our internal body temperature provides added safety by warming the muscle tissue and can further enhance neurological, cardiovascular, digestive, and immune function. Livestream participants are encouraged but not required to practice in a heated space.

Slow Flow (Gently Heated)

Friday, 4:30-5:30p
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous livestream)
Be in Union

A softly paced class designed to invite ease and fluidity through the body. “This class the perfect antidote to an active life.” In-studio yogis will be practicing in a heated room, 85-95 degrees.

Prenatal Yoga

Friday, 6:00-7:00p
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous virtual stream)
Be in Union

All folks are welcome during any stage of their pregnancy. No previous yoga experience is required. Classes are designed to alleviate common ailments of pregnancy, as well as help reduce stress and steady the mind (helpful during pregnancy, birth, and into parenthood).

Prenatal yoga supports a hardworking body. We take variations of postures and use props that provide support for the extra weight a person carries while pregnant. We accommodate for the extra effort it takes to move and breathe during pregnancy. Sequences include repetitive motion and moving with breath: rocking, rolling, and shifting to help mobilize joints and release stiffness. We focus on building strength and opening through the lower body: connecting with the power of the legs and glutes, while bringing space and softness through the pelvis and front of the torso. We dedicate time for supported, restorative postures to focus on the breath and make a connection with baby. We connect with each other. Students are invited to share as little or as much of what they are experiencing week to week: what feels good, what doesn’t, what’s new. We exchange information, share resources, and provide community support.

Sunday Flow

Sunday, 10:00-11:15a
hybrid (in-person at studio + simultaneous livestream)
SOMA Yoga Center

For weekend movers of all levels. The SOMA signature Flow is an alignment based, Vinyasa class designed to connect your mind with your body. You can expect expertly crafted classes with smart sequencing and flowing movement guided by your breath.
