Power Yoga with Jill Bartine @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Nov 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

Jill Bartine, M.M., RYT

JillB_headshotJill Bartine has been a teacher for more than half her life. As a classically-trained flutist who performs with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, her first outlet for her teaching passion was music.  She is thrilled to now include yoga to her teaching repertoire after completing her 200-hour RYT certification in August 2011.  By the fall of 2013, she had already logged over 1,000 teaching hours, which made her eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 200 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher).  She also holds a Bachelor of Music in flute performance from Northwestern University and a Master of Music from the University of Tennessee.

Having never been a fitness buff, Jill stepped into her first yoga class in 2002, and it was love at first sight.  Over the years that she has practiced, she is continually amazed at the benefits yoga has brought to her life – physical fitness, better posture, mental clarity, self-confidence, increased flexibility on and off the mat, and a general sense of peace and gratitude.

Professional musical performance employs controlled breath, body awareness, energy, creativity, rhythmic flow, and harmony — all qualities of a successful yoga practice.  Jill draws upon these elements in her classes, helping her students to feel in tune with their bodies and spirit, and those around them.  She professes to have “yoga ADHD” and constantly seeks new ways to experience poses and offer them to her students in a dynamic, playful way.

Jill teaches power and vinyasa group classes at multiple studios in Knoxville and also enjoys teaching private sessions for individuals and small groups. Connect with Jill via email:  flutistyogini@gmail.com ,  facebook.com/flutistyogini,

Yoga for You  |  Sundays, 10:00-11:00AM

Sunday. Yoga. You. Three words that go together like peas and carrots…and potatoes. 😉 Get the most out of your Sunday and join Jennie for this fun and encouraging class. Incorporating a blend of yoga styles and poses to accommodate any and all levels of practitioner—This is *Yoga For You*.  We’ll offer posture breakdowns and modifications along with more vigorous options to take your practice to the next level, if you wish to. There will also be opportunities to explore the deeper, internal dynamics of a pose and how it feels within your own body. Discover your edge and work to it. Be kind and patient with yourself. Leave class with a calmer mind and spirit, a strong supple body, and a gentle heart. Make Sunday count!


Jennie Berger, RYT 200

It was clear from an early age that Jennie and yoga were destined for one another. A youth gymnast, she also dabbled in various forms of dance and eventually, in 1993, found a local yoga studio in town and took her first class. She instantly fell in love and over the 20 plus years that followed has continued to explore various types of yoga styles and teachers around the world.

Jennie’s training is rooted in classic Ashtanga yet she’s not very traditional when it comes to yoga, or life for that matter. ? She adores stirring her own blend of colors into every class and sees each practice as a blank canvas with the opportunity to paint any picture you want. This is, after all, your practice. She has a deep passion for animals, music, health and nutrition, and wants nothing more than to share her love of yoga with others.

Restorative Yin Yoga with Becky Maze, RYT-500 @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Nov 17 @ 5:30 pm – 6:15 pm

RESTORATIVE YIN YOGA with Becky Maze, RYT-500

Restorative Yin yoga is a passive series of poses held for 3-5 minutes each. These poses target the deep connective tissues of the body and the fascia that cover the body to help regulate the flow of energy in the body. It is unique in that you relax in the posture. You soften and it can be meditative. Some benefits:

  • calms the mind
  • regulates energy
  • increases mobility, especially joints, connective tissue/flexibility
  • lowers stress/relaxation
  • greater stamina
  • lubricates joints
  • helps TMJ/migraines
  • aids in Yang practices (flow/vinyasa, etc)
  • teaches you to listen to your body

Practice both Yin/Yang (other types of Yoga) for balance.


“ I never liked Sunday evenings… weekend over, dreaded Monday morning looming… but some time ago, I discovered Becky’s Yin class and now I have something to look forward to at the close of the weekend. Becky’s classes are never repetitive… she expertly guides her yogis through a different series of yin poses each week, accompanied by soft eclectic music that really enhances the relaxing and soothing experience in mind and body. This class is a wonderful way to begin your week.”  

“Becky’s classes always have a nice flow and I leave feeling relaxed and restored for my week ahead. She is a great and caring yoga teacher!”

“ Becky takes the student through a series of stretches that are held for longer periods of time.  She pairs the stretches with music which helps me to focus on the stretch.  At the end of a session, I feel both stretched and relaxed at the same time.”


Becky Maze is a Knoxville native and has shown an interest in yoga since her college days. She is also a Dental Hygienist and holds a B.S. in Health Education. Her desire to know yoga’s balance intensified in 2005 as her life changed and growing pains ensued. She studied yoga under Asheville’s Cindy Dollar (Iyengar Method) at the Glowing Body and she claims Patty Dougherty to be one of her most precious mentors. She has a love for vinyasa and yin and is a Reiki Master. Her personal yoga journey has brought her into a more balanced lifestyle, which she delights in sharing with others through teaching.
