Joey (joann) Esposito
Club Pilates Certified Instructor
Joey discovered Pilates more than 15 years ago and it was love at first plank. She moved to San Diego shortly after graduating UCLA, where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and sought exercise that would eliminate the Freshman 15 she could never shed. She was also suffering knee and back pain due to sports injuries from track and martial arts. She became curious about Pilates and took private lessons for the next few years training on the reformer, cadillac, wunda chair, barrel and mat. After 10-20 sessions she noticed a difference in her posture, muscle definition, strength, and disappearing pain. The vast variety of exercises, apparatus, and mind-body focus Pilates provides invigorated her love for fitness and precision with movement. Once she began classes at Club Pilates Rancho Bernardo in 2011 she embarked on the Teacher Training Program. Her journey as a teacher has been incredibly fulfilling because she adores when clients experience a breakthrough and connect with the movement on a deeper level. Her goal is to create a feeling of strength, focus and joy in her classes. In addition to Pilates, Joey loves barre, yoga, hiking, snowboarding, golf, cooking, holistic health and will try just about any activity you can throw at her. She balances her full-time job in Human Resources with teaching Pilates. You will also find her spending time with her love, furry baby and enjoying the wonderful craft beer, restaurants, live music and culture San Diego offers.
