Jada-Rae Poku first fell in love with Pilates when she began using it to cross train with track and field back in 2015 at Rutgers University. After noticing that it helped rehabilitate some of her injuries and improved her performance, she fell in love with the idea of teaching Pilates. She has a strong passion for health and wellness and is currently studying Exercise Science and Health Administration at Rutgers University. As a supplement to her learning at Rutgers, she has worked as a Physical Therapy Aid since 2016 where she helps physical therapists rehabilitate patients dealing with various injuries. Her knowledge and experience from being in the Physical Therapy environment is brought to each lesson taught. Jada-Rae continues to further her career in Pilates and hopes to continue healing through movement.
