Jess lives in beautiful San Diego where she teaches group classes and privates. She lived in NYC prior to moving back west, and it was in the city that she underwent her classical Pilates teacher training over 5 years ago.
Jess began her personal Pilates practice at just 15yrs old, drawn to the method to help with her scoliosis. 20 plus years later and it's still her favorite form of movement!
One of the things that keeps her passionate about teaching is when clients share what their Pilates journey as done for them. 'I don't have any more pain when I move.' 'I stand taller.' 'I pay more attention to my posture.' For Jess, knowing she is helping people feel better in their bodies is what it's all about.
Her teaching style is a blend of East Coast Classical and West Coast Contemporary. Jess likes to use her words to help her students squeeze the most juice out of each and every move, and doesn't take herself too seriously. While you're getting all the lengthening and toning, expect a few laughs. Or just laugh at Jess laughing at herself.
