Fitness & Injury Prevention
Jessica is a strong believer in cross training for any athlete at every level of experience. Both as a way to prevent injury and improve technique.
As a dancer Jessica has had her share of injuries over the years ranging from chronic to traumatic. She started experimenting with different methods of cross training and body work when she was in high school. But, with almost no information available for dancers at the time, it took until her mid-twenties to find methods that worked. Over the years she has discovered a certain combination of methods provides her with the means to keep herself injury free and keep her body functioning at peek capacity.
To share what she learned with her students and give them access to better options, Jessica became certified in the GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® methods and Classical Pilates.
She currently hosts online & in-person group classes in the Gyrokinesis method & Classical Mat Pilates.
Jessica is also available for private & duet sessions online & in-person.
