Our visiting Instructor Jill is a PMA Certified Pilates teacher and a graduate of the highly regarded The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. She completed her training in January 2000 and the Masters Program in 2013.
Jill is also a nationally certified massage therapist and has been practicing for over 20 years. She has studied neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and Thai massage. She became interested in Pilates through her career as a massage therapist seeing Pilates as a massage to the body through active movement. She has always taken an interest in health and the intricate workings of the human body and finds that her studies of how the body is aligned and moves through the Pilates Method works hand in hand with the massage therapy skills she has gained over the years.
Jill is also a certified Level 3 Franklin Method® Movement Educator. She is currently one of only 50 other Level 3 teachers in the US.
The Franklin Method® teaches us how our bodies move functionally using the art of imagery to connect the mind and the body to empower the individual in all ways of moving. Franklin Method® is a stand alone method and also works well as a tool to teach Pilates more effectively.
Jill has a great passion to help facilitate healing and a sense of well being in the people she works with and approaches each Pilates lesson or massage with a high level of commitment. She combines all her knowledge to tailor an experience unique to the individual client.
