My name is Jolene Sharpe I have been practising and teaching Pilates for over 10 years. My training is from the original classical exercises from Joseph Pilates which was invented in the First World War to rehab war victims. The classes I teach cater to many different age groups and abilities of clients.
With half the class being Standing Pilates and the other half on the Mat, clients get a total body workout based on the fundamentals and principles of Pilates using your own body weight! There is a lot of body awareness and functionality when doing standing Pilates and it helps to increase bone density, helps with balance, and is a great addition to doing the traditional mat exercises.
I live in Chilliwack and enjoy running, competitive soccer, gardening and pretty much any outdoor sport. There are so many benefits that Pilates has given me to be able to perform better in these activities and life in general.
From group classes to one on one, kids, teens, elderly, pre and post natal clients, I thoroughly love teaching and enjoy sharing the many benefits of Pilates. It’s all about engaging your core muscles, aligning your spine, and strengthening the body using your own body weight … becoming strong within your own skin . I believe there is a class and level for everyone and my hope is to help make people feel strong and confident in their own body, from inside out.
