Jessica has always found movement to be her medicine from a young age. She had her first Pilates class 10-years ago and was instantly drawn to how released and lengthened it made her feel. Later on, as a line producer in the TV industry, she found Pilates the perfect counterbalance for the long hours leaving her calm, composed and ready for anything the day entailed. She realized that making people feel as great as she feels when she leaves a Pilates class is what would truly fulfill her. She studied at Pilates Sports Center and most recently completed an additional Pre and Post-natal workshop there. She believes Pilates is for everyone, and exercise should be fun and a safe space.
