Founder and Pilates Instructor

Suzy received her BA in Dance from Columbia College Chicago and is a member of the improvisation ensemble STäD.

Pilates was transformational in growing and maintaining her physical strength and mental well-being and felt like a natural connection to dance with its emphasis on anatomy, strength, and fluid movement. Suzy is a certified STOTT PILATES® instructor in Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs, and Barrels and a certified ACE Group Fitness Instructor. She is interested in the specificity and detail of Pilates and loves that Pilates can be modified to meet people where they are.

Jeanne is truly one of a kind. She was specifically recommended to me because I had chronic hip pain due to a labral tear. When I first started with her, I did not expect to continue working with her regularly for over 1.5 years now. She is creative, intuitive, and knowledgeable... Over time, I noticed that my pain was significantly better after my Pilates sessions. I highly recommend working with her!

MELISSA | PHYSICIAN MD

I started working with Jeanne three years ago to help with my recovery process after a surgery. I was so blown away with how I felt both physically and mentally, that I have continued to work with Jeanne one-on-one through the years. She is so knowledgeable, encouraging, and engaging. Jeanne's positive and loving spirit makes her the perfect teacher!

CHELSEA | DIETITIAN

Jeanne has been my private Pilates instructor for several years and I think she’s the best... she made it a point to study as much as she could about it (scoliosis) and has designed my classes to address my spine’s particular needs. She’s amazing! As a result, my back feels better. Jeanne also pushes me to work harder than I would if I exercised on my own. I need that!

SUE | CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS WRITER

Jeanne’s understanding and sense of commitment to our specific needs has impressed my husband and me. Each session is tailor made to addressing our body that day as well as working to achieve our overall goals. Her Pilates skills, along with her patience and humor, make her an outstanding instructor.

MARCIA | RETIRED

When I first came to Jeanne, I didn’t have much experience with Pilates. I was working 90 hour weeks and always had body aches. She was so welcoming right away, and understanding of what would be best for my body and my personal needs... Our one-on-one sessions are consistently the BEST part of my week...

EMILY | CREATIVE DIRECTOR

With Jeanne's guidance and help, I've managed to complete many athletic goals injury-free. Her knowledge and willingness to explain the fundamental reasoning behind each movement has also kept all of our 1-on-1 sessions very engaging. I always look forward to my weekly sessions with her!

WENBO | HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT

...During my time doing pilates with Jeanne, I have never had any reemergence of back issues, and I have had a consistently higher level of fitness and health. I would attribute that to pilates as a form of exercise, as well as Jeanne's expert understanding of pilates exercises, the equipment involved, and the muscle groups involved in the exercises. I definitely recommend pilates as an exercise and Jeanne as a knowledgeable instructor.

FARIS | CONSULTANT

If you're looking to improve your fitness level or have specific objectives with Pilates, recovery (from injury or pre-existing conditions), and/or other physical issues, Jeanne is your go-to person... Jeanne in one word: Super!

GREG | RETIRED

Jeanne starts each session by asking "how does your body feel?" and it made me realize that I never stop to ask myself that question. She makes you work hard and challenge yourself while staying positive and emphasizing your achievements. Jeanne often knows the issues I'm having with my body without me needing to tell her--her anatomical knowledge is impressive!

TAYLOR | MEETING PLANNER

Jeanne is a wonderful Pilates instructor! She is knowledgeable, professional, and encouraging. Her classes are never boring or repetitive. She is dedicated to proper form and preventing injuries. She also has a warm caring personality. Her classes are the best I have ever taken.

LAUREL | RETIRED

Following back surgery, my doctor recommended I start Pilates. Fortunately, I found Jeanne and have been with her for 2 years. Jeanne is so knowledgeable and is cautious about my back and other injuries I have. She absolutely understands what the problems are and helps me understand my potentials.

MERLE | RETIRED TEACHER

I have been doing Pilates with Jeanne for years, she's the best Pilates trainer I've ever had! I had back pain issues after my son was born, and she healed me in 2 months... She's so patient but also push you on a positive and effective way. All in all, I love her the best!

FIONA | FASHION BLOGGER, MODEL, & MOM

Jeanne has clearly spent a lot of time honing her craft. She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about sharing that knowledge with her students. I think I learn something new in every class I take with Jeanne! I highly recommend Jeanne's classes to students of all levels!
