Jill studied dance on scholarship at Northern Illinois University; and after graduating with a BFA in Dance Performance, Jill went on to dance with companies in Chicago and Denver – performing in North America and Europe. She was invited to teach dance at Northern Illinois University and North Central College as well.

Teaching dance opened up new ways for Jill to study, explore and analyze movement. This allowed her a greater understanding of anatomy and body mechanics, so the move to teaching Pilates was a natural progression. Jill became a STOTT PILATES® certified instructor in 2007 and immediately began teaching at the certification center in Chicago. In 2009, she received her certification in Peyow Aqua Pilates.

Later that year, Jill packed her bags and moved to Denver. She quickly built a loyal clientele by working with a variety of clients ranging from individuals requiring rehabilitation to athletes. In 2013, Jill traveled to the Merrithew Health and Fitness headquarters in Toronto, and became a CORE™ Qualified Instructor. In 2016, she became a Halo Training® Qualified Instructor. Jill became a Certified Oov Instructor in 2018.

Jill has studied the body and how to move it efficiently her entire life. By focusing on postural alignment, technique and quality of movement, she creates workouts that are safe, fun and challenging for her clients. Jill is passionate about helping her clients develop strength, flexibility, mobility, body awareness and more confidence in what they can do throughout their daily lives.

In 2017, wanting to help her clients live vibrantly in all aspects of their health, Jill enrolled in the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, and was certified in 2018. In 2020, following her passion for essential oils, she became a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA.


JOANNA RICHARDSON | INSTRUCTOR

STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor

Joanna moved to Colorado from Central Florida where she has been teaching Pilates for seven years. She began her certification to become a STOTT Pilates instructor in 2012 after being drawn to the method for its strong base in functional anatomy and attention to detail in every exercise. 

Her own interest in Pilates started as a compliment to her dance training for injury rehab and prevention. Joanna has been performing professionally for over 15 years and some of her more notable credits include Tokyo Disney, Disney World, and the Radio City Rockettes for 13 years. 

She enjoys sharing her love of movement and looks forward to helping clients find balance and strength in Pilates for a better quality of life.
