Jill is a retired HS Spanish teacher who moved to the area from the northeast after retiring in 2021 in order to be near family. While building a new life here, she stumbled upon Pilates and fell in love with the positivity of the instructors, the sense of the community with the other members AND how Pilates made her feel. She found the aches, pains and increasing limitations of aging melting away as she got
stronger. She had loved being a teacher, and her retirement had been bittersweet. So, when the opportunity to get trained to be a Pilates instructor presented itself, she seized it. She is proof that it is never too late to find new passions in life or to get stronger and more fit. In her classes, she tries to bring this enthusiasm to others. As a more “mature” instructor, she puts extra emphasis on stretching and balance exercises along with strengthening so that clients leave class feeling rebooted and re-energized.
