Personal Story: CJ found Pilates in 2004 while pursuing her bachelors in business and fell in love with Pilates after her first class. She continued practicing across the United States and then in Japan. She dove into her practice when she suffered an injury and her physical therapist prescribed a Pilates regimen for her rehabilitation. The strength and vitality that it brought to her body was something she knew would hold a permanent place in her life.

Fun Fact: CJ is a PADI Divemaster and loves being in and around the water. She lived in Japan for 4 years and lead retreats internationally.
