What People are Saying

I was given three sessions with Jen as a gift and was excited to continue working with her due the strength and flexiblity I felt in those first sessions.  Jen is knowledgable, patient and uses different modalities to accommodate your level of fitness and experience with exercise.  You will feel stronger and healthier as you work towards your goals. Jen has an expertise in the area of rehabilation and was able to adapt my program to accomdate problems that I have due to a neck injury.

Jen designs each session to meet your individual needs at each point in your journey towards a better, stronger, happier you!

I look forward to pilates sessions with Jen as a highlight of my week. She is fun to work with and keeps the sessions challenging. As a result of her training I am stronger, more flexible, have better posture, and generally feel better. Working with her is my gift to myself.

Jen is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, caring instructor.  Her classes are always just what I need; I leave feeling better than when I came and looking forward to the next one!

I started taking classes from Jen several years ago, shortly after completing treatment for breast cancer. Jen designed private sessions to my fitness level and limitations and I have seen consistent improvements in my fitness level, mobility, and strength. In group sessions, alternative moves are demonstrated so each person can participate at their level and within their own limitations. In both session types, I’ve learned how my body works, increased my strength and body awareness and gained confidence in my ability to keep active. The sessions never get old because Jen brings back new information and exercises from conferences and seminars she attends. Jen’s positive attitude and encouragement have helped me improve my attitude toward exercise and keep me moving forward on my fitness journey.

I received my first Pilates class with Jen as a gift from a friend and was skeptical in the beginning. After doing cardio for years, yoga or Pilates didn’t seem like a right way for me to get my body in shape. After working with Jen for almost two years now I have to admit – Pilates is a secret weapon for all shapes and bodies. My balance has never been as good as it is now, and I love to see the progress in my ability to hold poses. Jen is a very skilled and knowledgeable instructor. Her studio is in a great location, super clean and very serene. I feel very lucky to have found such a great teacher who loves what she does and loves sharing her gift with people.

Love the individual attention I get from Jennifer! Whether working with her in a group or individually she constantly focuses on helping me achieve my individual goals. For someone who would never have exercised or run any further than the refrig for a glass of wine, over the past year and a half I’ve successfully completed two half marathons in part due to the work I have done at Jennifer’s studio! That is a real accomplishment at my age and lack of physical fitness when I first started training! Thanks Jennifer!

Why I do what I do.

Habits are invisible. Movement just happens. You don't actively think about how to stand up and walk across a room. Right?? Unless a foot or knee or hip are not working as they should then it can be tough or downright painful.

The human body is an amazing instrument and everyone’s is different. Some people have long limbs and short torsos, some have long torsos and short limbs, some are lean and naturally muscular, others work hard to build strength and even harder to gain and maintain flexibility, while more still have such flexibility in their elbows, knees, shoulders and hips that the muscles need to work overtime to protect them from injury. Or more commonly learn how to recover.

Pilates and Yoga Therapy are tools I have used to rehab injuries for myself and post-rehab with my clients. I know what it is like to work through an injury. It is extremely rewarding to guide my clients on their path to strengthen, re-balance, and improve their overall functional fitness.
