Jeanna was first introduced to Pilates in 2000 while working as a personal trainer in Eugene, Oregon. She started as a student taking privates in a studio on her own three times per week. She fell in love with the movement and knew right away she would need to go for her teacher training. Jeanna chose Polestar for her Pilates training and got reformer trained in 2001 in Sacramento, California. Jeanna graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Movement Science from the University of Oregon in 1999. Jeanna’s love of movement and the human form has given her a lifetime of experience via expressive movement and academia resulting in an innate understanding of form and function. After a big move and a few children later, Jeanna went back for her studio training (which includes all Pilates equipment) again choosing Polestar in 2009 in Kansas City. Jeanna stays current with her membership to the PMA (the Pilates Method Alliance) and keeps up with her continuing education. She is currently working on her advanced teacher training with Polestar taking courses such as patho-kinesiology of the lumbar spine, scoliosis, and advanced assessment
Michelle Turkenburg has a BS in dental hygiene and after 28 years decided to take a different path for helping people with their health. She discovered Pilates 6 years ago and became so inspired by it she studied to become a certified instructor in mat, the reformer, and the Cadillac. "Pilates is like no other exercise you will ever do. I have done aerobics, kickboxing, weight lifting, spinning, and other activities but none have given me the awareness of individual muscle use, mind body connection, or feeling of power that Pilates has given me. It is my desire to give my clients the same passion for Pilates that I have found in a fun, knowledgeable atmosphere.”
