Instructors In Our Collective
Jen is a somatic educator specializing in Pilates, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®. She is also a Certified Pre-Trainer in the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® modalities.
Jen teaches both rehabilitative and fitness-focused sessions that balance a keen sense of observation and intuition with a solid grounding in anatomy and biomechanics. Her approach encourages the client to be an active participant in growing stronger and more informed about their potential for movement and healing. She helps clients institute small positive changes that have exponentially larger effects on their quality of life beyond the studio—unwinding old movement patterns and laying the foundation for new, healthier pathways to move through the day.
Jen has worked with clients of all ages and abilities from seasoned athletes to post-injury rehab, and those brand new to fitness. She completed her mat training under Kelly Kane at the Kane School of Core Integration and continued her full apparatus training with Ellie Herman. Since initial certifications in 2006, Jen has continued her studies in functional movement and biomechanics with Irene Dowd, Rebekah Rotstein, and the education team at Elevate. Jen holds full certification in GYROTONIC® levels 1 and 2, Jumping Stretching Board, and Gyrotonic applications for Scoliosis.
Outside of the studio Jen is a distance runner, dance enthusiast and Teaching Artist with a Master of Arts in Applied Theatre from the City University of New York.
