Jaclyn Cooperrider is a family medicine physician who specializes in sports medicine. She is passionate about preventative health, women’s health, and using exercise and food to nourish our bodies. She completed her RYT-200 via Shanti Yoga School during medical school and residency and found it to be a valuable outlet. She teaches resident physicians as a faculty member at the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho and also works at Idaho Sports Medicine Institute where she treats a variety of sports injuries and works as a team physician for Boise State University. She enjoys the variety that family medicine has to offer and feels that a key component of primary care is meeting an individual where they are. This same concept can be used to transform a yoga class into an opportunity for personal growth and self-reflection. Jaclyn believes that an instructor offering reasons and goals for poses, modifications, prompts and varying types of yoga can create a safe space for the practitioner and instructor understanding of anatomy and physiology is an essential part of the teaching foundation.

Bill’s training and practice is grounded in Vinyasa Karma (art and science of combining the elements of Yoga in a sequence that makes an effective and safe practice) and the study of foundational yoga scriptures. His ongoing education includes attending many workshops taught by world renowned teachers including Mark Whitwell, J. Brown, Sara Ivanhoe, Annie Carpenter, Baxter Bell, and Micheline Berry. Bill is also a teacher within the Shanti Yoga School. His personal practice and self study education includes The Heart of Yoga, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Tantric Philosophy, as well as other Yoga philosophical texts.
For 12 years Bill has been teaching at studios in Boise, including Yoga Tree of Boise, Sage Yoga and Wellness, Yoga for Life, and at the Boise Athletic Club.
His practice implements modifications and adaptations in order to be more available to a wider spectrum of people. Bill links the movement of the body and the movement of the breath, leading the student through a series of postures to strengthen and build flexibility, which also promotes stamina and inner calmness. If you enjoy a group practice that is a little slower, without force or strain, then Bill’s classes are for you.
When Bill is not on his mat, he enjoys time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Bill is also a practicing Landscape Architect in Boise.
