Jeanetter encountered and then devoted herself to the Classical Pilates which promotes teaching the system just as Joseph Pilates had intended it to.
Jeanette pursued her certification through Peak Pilates, an amazingly rigorous program that included intensive on-site training, extensive observation, teaching, and personal practice hours. Lastly, she had to demonstrate her full command of the Method by passing a rigorous written and physical exam.
Suffice it to say, Jeanette passed these with flying colors and is now a Peak Pilates Professional Certified Instructor. Not one to rest on her laurels, Jeanette continues to take lessons and attend workshops to improve her own practice and to be able to pass on the benefits of the added knowledge to her students.
Jeanetter considers herself a Classical Instructor and a student of the Method for life. She has never felt so strong or so in tune with her body as she does now.
