Balanced Body University Certified
Jenny has always been athletic! She first discovered Pilates while at Cabrillo College and immediately fell in love. The deep core work and mind body connection was not something she had ever experienced, yet immediately began to crave. She continued to practice Pilates until a severe ankle injury that she got while skateboarding put that on hold. It was then that Jenny found Agile Monkey Pilates. She rehabilitated her ankle back to health and found the true healing powers of Pilates, and decided this was something she wanted to be a big part of her life.
Jenny completed the Balanced Body Instructor Training Program in 2009 at Agile Monkey. After taking some time off to study Nutrition at San Jose State University, Jenny returned to Agile Monkey to complete her certification and integrate herself into the Pilates community.
Jenny’s clients absolutely adore her instruction and always come back for more!
