Private Pilates Instruction

The introductory sessions were really worth the money, Jessica is very good at bringing variations based on clients needs and comfort level. I had a great fun so far working with her and I plan to book more classes with her in future.

Jessica's classes have helped me with range of motion and posture. The changes were subtle at first, and then I noticed how much taller I felt after each class. She has a lot of knowledge and is able to clearly explain things to me in a way I can grasp. She's very patient and helps you understand what to think about as you are doing the movements. In my exercise classes, I have begun integrating what I learned from Jessica into my workouts. I highly recommend Gyrokinesis and Pilates with Jessica!

My son is aspiring to become a professional dancer in ballet. He said he really thinks, with Jessica’s private instruction sessions, he will make his goals. We are grateful she took him on as a student, because she is amazing.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For Private Training, I will set up a time for a phone consult so we can talk about your goals in detail and I can answer any questions you may have. From there, if you choose to book, the process will be as follows. First, I will need your email to send you my client welcome package. This will include a new client intake form and a Covid-19 waiver. Both can be filled out online and must be completed before the start of your first session. The Covid-19 waiver is not required for virtual sessions. It will also include PDFs with suggestions for how to set up your space for online training & what to expect from your first session. Second, you will need to decide when you would like to pay for your first session. If you would like to pay before the start of your session, I will email you an invoice which will be due upon receipt. If you would like to pay at the end of your session, you will need to have your credit card information on file to hold your session. Your credit card will not be charged until your session is complete. You can provide this information over the phone for security purposes. Your session will not be officially booked until either your invoice is paid or a credit card is on file. For future sessions you must either have an active package or a credit card on file to book a session. Lastly, you will receive email confirmation that your session has been booked from the scheduling platform I use called Schedulicity. If you booked a virtual session you will receive a Zoom link 30min prior to the start of your session. Cancelation/No Show: 24 hour cancellation notice is required. If less than 24 hours notice is given then the session/class will be deducted from your package or your credit card will be charged the full amount for a single session/class. Refunds: Single classes are refundable up to 24hrs prior to the start of class. Packages are fully refundable for 72hrs from date of purchase. Packages purchased more than 72hrs prior are nonrefundable. Used sessions are nonrefundable.
