Hello! I’m Jill Tuleya and I have been with PCC since 2012. From 2012-2023, I taught Yoga and Meditation for Physical Education, and my colleague Alma and I co-developed and led Oregon’s first for-credit Yoga Teacher Training Certificate program for Exercise Science. I also developed PCC’s first fully online Yoga courses for replication across the college and I designed and led Mindfulness workshops and weekly practices for PCC staff, faculty and community members.

Currently, I am teaching for the Human and Family Services Department and Community Education facilitating Mental Health First Aid Adult and Youth courses. These courses help people like you and me navigate and appropriately respond to individuals who are dealing with mental health issues along the crisis spectrum. This course is being taught all over the globe to teachers, doctors, nurses, firefighters, counselors, social workers and more!

Further, I am Health & Wellness Coach trained by Duke Integrative Medicine and Duke Health. I offer 1-on-1 Health Coaching through PCC’s Community Ed program to help people learn to develop and stick with healthy habits that improve their lives for the good. So, if you are feeling stressed, not sleeping as well as you might like, want to move more, eat healthier or reduce screen time, I’d love to work with you!

When I’m not teaching or coaching for PCC, you can find me doing some freelance writing work, hiking, camping or volunteering with my favorite non-profit, Trailkeepers of Oregon.

To learn more about these PCC courses and/or to inquire about 1-on-1 Health Coaching, contact me at jill.tuleya15@pcc.edu. I look forward to hearing from you!
