Meet Our Pilates Instructors

The JCC Pilates program will help you get to the core of the matter with this complete training method pioneered by Joseph Pilates. Pilates can help you develop balance & symmetry, improve flexibility & coordination and enhance lower back mobility.

Pilates Reformer

The JCC’s certified Pilates instructors offer flexible hours and a variety of workouts on the Allegro Tower of Power Reformer. Work one-on-one or in a duet, trio or quartet to improve strength, flexibility, posture and overall body tone. If you’re new to Pilates, two private sessions are required before you can join a duet, trio or quartet. Half-hour sessions are great for building muscle stamina and mobility for active adults.
