Jenna’s approach to pilates and holistic fitness emphasizes the mind-body connection, utilizing the power of awareness and a positive attitude to create lasting change. Jenna is a creative and adept teacher, and is inspired by both modern and ancient healing systems, having been exposed to yoga and dance at a young age. She completed her first yoga teacher training in the Anusara method in 2004, and continued to study yoga therapeutics with various Anusara teachers. Her passion for movement studies led her to Asia, where she studied yoga, dance, and breath work, and completed a Thai yoga massage training. She then returned to the states and attended the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, graduating with a license in massage therapy and certificates in Cranial Sacral Therapy and Polarity Healing. Jenna’s overall fascination with the body and biomechanics, along with her desire to treat her own scoliosis, led her to pilates. Jenna was drawn to the Polestar Pilates School because of their emphasis on physical therapy and rehabilitation. Jenna’s other passion is teaching and performing classical Indian and ethnic dance. Jenna’s classes are fun and challenging, emphasizing breath, alignment, movement awareness, and her coined phrase “freedom in form."
