What drives me: Inspiring people to be their personal best every day; guiding them to those "aha" moments, when the light goes on, and they accelerate towards personal goals. I aim to provide excellence in guiding people to heal themselves through movement--pilates and functional training--, to optimize human potential through movement, and to be a leader in educating and inspiring the public about health and wellness. My experience as a student at UCSF Medical School taught me a wealth of information about assessing states of health with great respect to the complex interconnected systems of the body and mind. My life as a professional dancer has allowed me to gain tremendous insight from my own body’s experience as a laboratory of injury and repair. My continuing education through pilates, personal training, the Gray Institute, and other functional medicine paradigms, add to the resources I bring when approaching each individual client. I have tremendous respect for the body’s ability to heal and restore homeostasis, or balance. I aim to guide people through a positive, pain free movement experience that is revitalizing, healing, empowering, and which advances the body's healing power, strength, mobility and overall performance; to help people get "unstuck" from a spiral of "dis-ease" and propel them forward to an optimal healthy, vital state of well being; to guide people to realize that even in the presence of injuries, or illness, we can move ourselves to optimal health, and live in a state of fitness, with lean, strong bodies and vibrant, strong minds, aligned and well. I aim to guide people to understand there are alternatives to surgery and/or medications and that efficient movement -- together with strategic nutrition, and positive lifestyle changes,--heals the body; to promote the philosophy that we can up regulate expression of the body's DNA, hormones, and biochemistry—the body’s intrinsic healing system-- on a deep cellular level, leading to enduring and profound advancements in health and, therefore, function.
And I just love seeing people light up with the joy of movement!!

    We are huge fans of Jennifer's teaching style! My husband and I recently did her new Pilates and Paddle Boarding class and absolutely LOVED it! Pilates and paddle boarding are a natural and ideal combination. This class was our first paddle boarding lesson and pilates beforehand was the key to fun day. Without the check-in Jennifer provided, I know I would have had significantly less awareness of my balance and body alignment. It was a refreshing energizing couple of hours thanks to Jennifer.

    Jennifer's knowledge of the human body helps her to expertly describe every detail as you move in and out of each pose. Her studied euphemisms helped me to visualize the movements in my head while I was executing them. Her energy and disposition are also remarkable, making my first Pilates class not only physically enjoyable but mentally exhilarating as well. I walked away feeling so rejuvenated! Would highly recommend this to anyone!

    We LOVE Jennifer and Jennifer's Class at the Malibu Beach Inn. Jennifer is an amazing Intructor with a lovely, soothing, wonderful way about herself. We look forward to our Classes on the sand with the ocean waves and sun setting!

    Jennifer's training, sunshine and encouragement helped advance my fitness far beyond the reason I began with her in the first place. I wore a back brace (scoliosis) and was in constant pain. After 3 months the brace is about half-time, the pain is significantly reduced, and I even have plans to return to ballet class in 2 months.
