Stress levels are at an all-time high after the trials and tribulations of COVID-19 quarantine, social distancing, reopening, virus variants and holidays. Jillian’s Pop-up Yoga is providing a way to recharge, slow down and process the changes around us.


“Yoga encourages you to monitor your breath and tap into your parasympathetic nervous system, which is almost like a restart button for your body, releasing stress and tension from the body,” said Jillian Steakin, the mentor and creator of Jillian’s Pop-up Yoga. Through weekly yoga events, full-moon crystal healing ceremonies and private classes, Steakin has helped the community find inner peace and healing. “Yoga allows you to create a connection with your body,” she said. “We live in a society where everything is happening so fast, and everyone wants an instant reaction. Everybody forgets that the body holds the highest knowledge. Yoga practice can really help you connect, learn how to slow down and listen to your body.”


Steakin is open about her personal battles with depression and anxiety. She lost herself in mental illness, struggled to find self-value and eventually pulled herself out of the darkness with the help of meditation and yoga.

After witnessing how much yoga had helped her, Steakin made it her mission to help others. She conducted research, took courses and earned certification to teach yoga. Steakin’s Pop-up Yoga holds several weekly events for people to come out and practice yoga, starting with Sunset Flow at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sunshine Flow at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sunrise Flow at 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunset Flow at 5 p.m. Sunday. All events are held at Royal Palm Way and Ocean Boulevard at Flagpole Beach.


Each class is $15. Attendees are encouraged to bring a large blanket or sheet.


Steakin also offers private yoga sessions, wellness coaching and teaching in mindfulness practices. All classes are appropriate for all levels of yoga.
