About Jillian:

Jillian is an internationally renowned Master Pilates teacher based in Los Angeles, California, and a second-generation Pilates teacher in direct succession from Joseph Pilates.

Jillian was an apprentice at the Carola Trier Studio, where she studied to teach Pilates’ method of exercises.  In 1988, she founded her own training practice, and since then she has tutored countless students in the finer nuances of Pilates exercise. Throughout this time, she has developed and constantly honed her own unique approach to teaching Pilates, which she calls the B.E.A.M. Technique™.

Jillian’s B.E.A.M. Technique™ quickly gained popularity, and she began to attract the notice of numerous high-profile students eager to learn from her.  She also works regularly with both student and professional athletes and dancers, helping them to alleviate muscle imbalances, prevent injuries, and improve overall performance.

Jillian traces her Pilates “lineage” back to Joseph Pilates himself through her teachers Kathy Grant, Carola Trier, and Ron Fletcher, who learned directly from Pilates at his original studio in New York City.  Jillian holds a Certificate from U.C.L.A. Extension as a Health/Fitness Instructor, and is certified through American College of Sports Medicine (A.C.S.M.). In addition, she is a certified Personal Trainer through American Council on Exercise (A.C.E.). She is on the Advisory Board for Pilates Style magazine, and helped the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) to develop an International Exam for Pilates Teachers that will help ensure safety, competence, ethics, respect, and professionalism in the industry.

“I’ve just finished the seated standing course and am rejoicing in the wonderful feeling of inhabiting my body as if I’ve moved through to a different sense of being alive. This feeling (inadequately described) only comes to me from Garuda. It is ridiculous to say 'thank you' as one would politely say if a door were being held open, but perhaps that is the best analogy. With gratitude. ”Janet Cook
