Jessi knows when you are really focusing, or, like me ‘I know you’re talking to avoid working harder, Stacy.’ I met Jessi when she first trained in Pilates I was lucky enough to be her first client in 2003. She made it easy and understandable, and I truly felt it making a difference immediately. I know what I learned from Jessi helped my arthritis and I never would make it through the surgery so easily than if I didn’t have Pilates. Jessi pays attention to learn your strengths and limitations to make the best workout program so you can achieve their goals.
One of the most important aspects of working with Jessi is that I always knew that no matter how personal our conversations became she kept them private. Jessi is not a gossip. I am a private teacher and mentor in another field, at NYU and Yale University and know how critically important this is when working with someone in an intimate setting. My Pilates sessions with Jessi never became routine. I always felt she dealt with who I was physically and psychologically at the moment in a creative way. I describe Jessi as a sculptor. She is an artist who goes beyond the craft. She knew what I needed at every session. In a true Pilates tradition I always came away energized and refreshed. There was mysticism in every session.
