She took a hiatus for three years to pursue her vocation in photography which she continues to practice. Jody's teaching style, while adhering to Joseph Pilates principals of centering, precision concentration, breathe, and flowing movement is innovative and playful. She enjoys experimenting with variations on the repertoire to keep it fresh for her students.

Chinami Stern

Chinami discovered Pilates when she was looking for a good stretching method, while working out with heavy weights at the gym. One of her Pilates instructors showed her how to stretch and strengthen her body without using weights. She had an old shoulder injury and lower back pain, made worse by having kids. Working with Pilates method helped her to rehabilitate from those injures.
This experience motivated her to study Pilates and she was certified as an instructor in 2009 by Body Art and Science International (BASI).
