I have been going to this studio for years now. I am not particularly athletic and suffer from numerous ailments related to joints and my back. Jan and all the instructors are so knowledgeable, rigorous, and kind. After working with all of them I have better mobility and strength. This is a great studio....best in the neighborhood!
In 2005, Janessa became a certified Pilates instructor through Steele Pilates and later fully re-certified through BASI Pilates International. Always eager for knowledge, Janessa has completed courses for Pre/Post-Natal Pilates, Back/Hip Pathologies, Pilates for Scoliosis, and Pilates for Special & Aging Populations. She also takes workshops and studies with teachers such as Deborah Lessen, Amy Taylor Alpers, Alycea Ungaro, and Benjamin Degenhardt among many other talented colleagues.
Janessa has taught Pilates throughout the US and abroad, spending the past six years teaching at her studio in Stockholm, Sweden. Happily back in NYC she is still dancing and is now studying to become a birth doula.
