Welcome to Pilates with Jo…I’m just a Mama that loves Pilates, and I want to share my passion with you!

I have been studying the Pilates Method since 2001, and I became certified to teach Pilates in 2008. My Pilates training is through several excellent schools:

  • Pilates Academy International
  • The Center for Women’s Fitness
  • Balanced Body

Additionally, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Chatham College and a Master’s Degree in Ecology from U.C. Davis.  I spent many years prior to teaching Pilates working as a wildlife biologist, specializing in bats.

My Pilates practice helps me bring balance, grace, and strength to my everyday life.  I’d love to help you develop your Pilates practice too!
