Jen is a literal life-changer. I decided to try Pilates, and specifically Jen, due to a stubborn issue that months of physical therapy hadn’t really helped much, despite valiant efforts on the part of the therapists. Jen listened and we did a couple of sessions of myofascial release therapy and then she encouraged me to get moving! My issues have progressively resolved. I think her physical therapy roots help her identify what’s happening in my body and she tailors the exercises to allow me to do them even if the first time it hurts. Even if you have no issues with pain or restriction, Jen’s fabulous with her Pilates teaching–she watches carefully and corrects even the tiniest alignment problem so you get the maximum benefit from the exercise. She’s really revolutionary in her thoughts about the importance of movement. She’s also just a really nice and funny person.”
