Brandi has 9 years teaching experience with 2 certifications (Power Pilates, PMA) and has been a director/coordinator of Pilates programs the entire time. She currently is living in Reston, with her husband Rob, and two daughters, Ryen & Raegan.

Jill was introduced to Pilates as a young dancer in NY while attending SUNY Purchase Fine Arts Program and enjoyed the benefits of improved core strength and stability for hyper mobile joints. Later, as a dance instructor and choreographer, Jill incorporated Pilates moves to enhance strength and flexibility for dancers and skaters. Today Pilates reformer exercises keep her pain free from poorly tracking knee caps... she notices when she takes 2 weeks off! When Club Pilates opened locally in late 2016, she jumped at the chance to become a certified instructor and help others achieve their fitness goals in CPs unique, multi-faceted setting. She also completed a certification in Leslie Bender's, Barre Above program in spring, 2018. Pilates has been a very fulfilling career path and a wonderful compliment to her skills in both dance and training. Jill has also worked in Corporations and Government agencies as an HR Generalist and Leadership Development Specialist and achieved an MA in Training, Curriculum Design and Human Resources Development in the late 90s. She has a passion for whole foods plant based cooking, nutrition and education and completed a certificate program in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University in 2013. In her free time, she spends time with her family, cooks with friends, assists with her daughter's ice skating team (Pilates and costuming) and volunteers in community theater.
