I have tried several Pilates studies in my area, and Henry Street Fitness is by far my favorite. They offered great online classes during the pandemic, and not that we are transitioning back to live classes, it is a joy to be back in their lovely studios. All the teachers are terrific, they are fun, and they offered targeted improvement instructions plus a tough class. I look and feel better!
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.
