Jennifer has been teaching Pilates since 1997. Intrigued by the variety of approaches to the work, Jennifer set on a quest to study with as many master teachers as possible to solve this “Pilates puzzle.” All of these teachers, both classical and contemporary, influence her work and build her Pilates toolbox, along with strong influence from modalities such as yoga and qigong, and the resilience and perspectives derived from breast cancer survivorship.
With a strong background in musculoskeletal and fascial anatomy along with eastern body-mind modalities, Jennifer views each individual body through a holistic lens. She believes the spirit of any movement system lies in the understanding of the person rather than the exercise.
Jennifer is a certified White Tiger Qigong instructor and is currently pursuing a degree in Biocultural Anthropology, with a focus on human evolution and health. She believes, “By looking to the past and to the ways different cultures throughout history have viewed human health, we can understand the evolution of the human body and what it means to live at our potential.”
Jennifer is an experienced presenter, sharing her passion for movement at conferences and platforms such as Pilates Method Alliance, Pilates on Tour, and Fusion Pilates and in publications (Pilates Anytime, Pilates Style, and Disney Family). As a mother of 4, Jennifer is grateful for the physical and mental strength and flexibility her movement practice has helped her to achieve.
