What Three Words come to mind when you think of “Polestar Pilates”




What do you love about teaching Pilates and owning a studio? 

JF: I love making connections with my clients and instructors and watching them grow through the Pilates work.

Where did you take your training and who was the educator?

JF: My Polestar training was with Mette Hansen at my studio Aligned Pilates Studio in Santa Barbara.

What are your current Inspirations? 

JF: I am currently inspired by how our emotional health affects our physical health. I love teaching Pilates as a way to help others feel better and more empowered.

Why Pilates? How did you find the practice?

JF: I suffered from chronic back pain as a child and young adult. Nothing helped until I found Pilates in my mid-twenties. I no longer suffer from back pain and feel stronger and healthier.

Why Polestar Pilates? How did you come to join the Polestar Community?

JF: I wanted a more in-depth knowledge of how to work with people who have different pathologies. Over and over I kept coming back and taking classes and workshops from Polestar teachers. Eventually, I realized I needed to be Polestar trained.

What do you hope to convey in your teaching?

JF: I want to give my clients the tools they need to help themselves and feel empowered.

Is there a quote you live by?

JF: We are only on the planet for a little while. Making authentic connections with others is at the heart of what I do and who I am. I try not to take myself or life too seriously. I feel my best when I am present with the person I am with and living in the moment.

What is your favorite apparatus or favorite way to move?

JF: I love doing all the Runity movements. They are functional movements and can be used on any piece of equipment. Since I am a runner it has changed my life for the better.
