Jennifer Kries is a master and a sage. Although I practiced Pilates for five years prior to meeting her, I never felt so challenged, so inspired to work, nor so enlightened as to my body’s potential. I have come to seek––and on my good days attain––a level of greatness and depth of understanding that Jennifer is responsible for sparking in me. She is truly special, and I credit her with transforming the relationship that I have with my own body, while catalyzing for me the marked elevation of my own practice. Her passionate work as a dancer, her keen knowledge of Eastern healing practices, and her penetrating wisdom of anatomy inform every layer of her teaching, and infuse every verbal cue, every direction she so brilliantly transmits. Her eye is precise beyond measure, in that she is able to read the body in a way that continues to astound. Her belief in focused and meticulous work is coupled with her exquisite command of language in the imparting of her lessons. These gifts yield an uncanny insight into the distinct physical needs and mental make-ups of each of her clients. It is exactly this insight, and Jennifer’s overwhelming genius in the field, that make her one of an elite echelon of teachers.
