Jami loves working with everyone. To say she has a favorite is challenging. She does enjoy working with individuals on a mission to improve their mobility and strength. Through her experience she has found a delicate balance of coaching someone to challenge themselves without pushing them beyond their threshold. Nothing is more rewarding for Jami then when a client reaches a milestone! The words “I can’t” are not allow in her sessions. (wink wink) Her mantra is “Today maybe a challenge but one day it will happen.”
Jami’s approach to teaching Pilates merges classic delivery with a modern approach. She follows the philosophy of “less is more.” She believes it isn’t the quantity of the exercise, but the quality of the movement. Jami’s extensive knowledge of all Pilates apparatuses offers any client a challenging and custom workout. She is a committed partner with clients on their movement and wellness journey. In group classes you will feel Jami’s motivating energy to have fun but also work effectively. As you take her classes you may start to pick out what her past clients have called “Jami-isms”
