Jyl teaches private, duet and small group equipment Pilates sessions utilizing reformers with towers, stability chair, ladder barrel, orbit and small props as well as mat Pilates classes. Her lifelong study of movement enables her to tailor her lessons to the body being taught. This produces a lesson that is challenging, empowering and encouraging so the client can truly make the Pilates method their own. Jyl has taught clients from age 13 to 81. She has taught the athlete and the non-athlete. She enjoys the amazing changes that Pilates brings to all her clients. They inspire her as much as she inspires them.
