Jennifer Thornton

Jennifer is a fully certified Yoga and Pilates Instructor who began teaching in 2009 after a ten year career in event planning and producing dance, theater, and film. She received STOTT PILATES certification in matwork and equipment, as well as coursework in Injuries and Special Populations, and was certified at the 200-hour level in Yoga from Moksha Yoga Center. Jennifer has a playful yet detailed teaching style, and she especially loves working with beginners, older adults, and those recovering from injury. She believes a combination of Pilates and Yoga allows students to uncover the most stable, tension-free, and mindful version of themselves. Jennifer discovered her love of movement at an early age, performing and competing in dance, gymnastics, and cheerleading throughout her youth. She has danced in numerous commercial and charity events around Chicago. Jennifer also enjoys cooking, cycling, running 5ks, traveling, and organizing a block club in the Albany Park neighborhood of Chicago with her husband Adam.
