Student Spotlight: Jillian Singer


This month, Jill Singer is our spotlight! She's been coming to the studio since January and her practice has grown immensely throughout that time. Check out her interview below!

How did you find out about Soul Flyte?
Last January my friend asked me if I wanted to join her for a private class at Soul Flyte so I decided to try it out. 

What’s something you can't live without? 
I cannot live without chocolate! I always have some type of dark chocolate in my house. I wish I couldn't live without something like celery but chocolate is just too good. 

What brought you to try your first class at SF? 
Kayla Braca! And we still go together every week. 

What’s your favorite time of day?
My favorite time of day is when the sun is a golden color right before it's about to set especially around this time of year when the air is crisp and the perfect temperature. 

Do you have a favorite pose at SF?
My favorite pose is a tie between bomber and any type of handstand. I love bomber because it looks really cool and it takes so much strength to hold the pose. I really love doing handstands and headstands too. In the beginning I would dread doing them in class because they would tire me out so quickly but now I feel accomplished when I'm able to balance on my own.

What’s the best meal you've eaten? 
The best meal I've ever eaten is my great grandmother's Italian wedding soup. She passed away a few years ago at 99 years old but my grandma and mom still make it in her honor and it is delicious!

Favorite thing about coming to Soul Flyte?
I love the environment. Throughout the whole class everyone supports one another no matter what. Even when you can't get a move down perfectly everyone else still applauds and tells you how well you've done. When I'm in a class full of people I've never even met you can still feel the love and you become friends from that day forward. Of course I also love the fact that it's a great workout while also having so much fun. 

Would you recommend it to others?  I would recommend it to everyone I know! I post a bunch of pictures and every time I see friends who I haven't seen in a while they always ask me about it and tell me they want to try it out one day. 

Favorite/best place you've traveled to: I recently traveled to Italy and that is definitely my favorite place I've traveled to. The culture, food, art, history, climate, scenery, everything about Italy is so amazing (especially the wine) and I can't wait to go back. 

What's your favorite book? Movie? My favorite book is The Pact. I think I've read it about 4 times and I could read it over and over again. My favorite movie is Thirteen. I've watched it over 100 times. My sisters and I even watched it with the commentary a few times so we know all of the secrets when they were filming. 

What's the craziest thing you've ever done? The craziest thing I've ever done was be a guest in the Big Apple Circus. My mom gave me and some friends front row seats at the circus a few years ago. In between the acts they had a male and female clown come out into the ring and interact with the audience. At one point the male clown came up to me and had me stand up on the outside of the ring while the female clown was on the other side "getting jealous" that he was talking to me. When he walked back to me he put his arms out to give me a hug but instead he scooped me up and brought me to the middle of the ring! They gave me a pool noodle so I fought the female clown in the ring with a noodle. It was very funny and I have a video if you ever want to see!

Anything else you want to share? I just want to say that I'm so happy Kayla brought me to my first class at Soul Flyte.  Besides the fact that it is a great workout, adding yoga into my workout routine was the best thing I've ever done. Even when I'm having a bad day I always walk out of class feeling happy and relieved from the stress of the day. Thank you to the Soul Flyte team!
