After growing an inch and dropping a size in her first year practicing Pilates Jana was hooked. Six months later, in the spring of 2002, she completed the Quantum Pilates mat teacher training and began their machine course training, which she finished in January 2004. Jana spent the winter of 2007 doing “strapless dress” exercises in preparation for her wedding that May. And then spent nearly all of 2010 using pilates to help prepare for the birth of her first child that September. Doing pilates until the day she went into labor, Jana was once again amazed by how well pilates prepares both mind and body for all life has to offer. Since returning to work she has enjoyed helping brides, new and soon to be moms, and everyone else, stand taller and stronger in their pilates bodies. Additionally, Jana is a certified Holistic Health Counselor, member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Jana is available for private Pilates instruction Monday through Friday mornings as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings. She teaches the Thursday evening group machine class.
