2017 Speaker: Jill Babiarz (local baby loss mama, yoga teacher/healer)
Jill has been teaching therapeutic healing movement for over 20 years and has owned her Core Awareness yoga studio for 13 years where she teaches small group yoga classes, private yoga sessions and yoga half day or full day retreats. Her transformational life journey has been one of intense loss through losing her four babies (Britta, Ella, Grace and Saylor), navigating a divorce and climbing out of severe depression that almost ended her life. As a result of her life’s path she has connected with so many doctors, therapists, support groups and other healers in the community and they now all refer students to her healing studio. Jill teaches a Yoga for Emotional Wellness class which is for people walking through trauma especially through pregnancy loss and depression. She feels so blessed to have the strength and courage to now give back through her teaching, writing and speaking.
