Jennifer Day, Instructor

Jennifer received her comprehensive classical certificate in Pilates from Peak Pilates training under Pamela Garcia and Clare Dunphy. In addition to her classical training and many workshops, Jennifer has also trained under a Physical Therapist which has helped her work with an even wider client base from those recovering from injuries to athletes. Jennifer has also been a featured fitness model with Pilatesology, a worldwide online classical Pilates community which hosts workouts and seminars.

Jennifer has always shown interest in body movement. From the young age of 3 she began dance training in a variety of forms from jazz to ballet at Steppin’Out Dance Center in Saco, Maine.  During her teenage years she was accepted into a Regional Fine Arts Program for dancers in Southern Maine, focusing on technique and performance skills. With 9 years of formal training and 3 years of performance training she developed a deep curiosity in body movement and healthy lifestyles. She was first introduced to Pilates through her dance training. From warm-ups to classes, Pilates has always been apart of her adolescent and adult life. Inspired by the strength and passion of her instructors she pursued a classical education in Pilates, to honor the original work of Joseph Pilates. Jennifer has such passion and fun while practicing and teaching, she only wishes to introduce more people to Pilates and feed their curiosity.
