"Jessica is an amazing Pilates instructor. I've taken Pilates from several trainers, and I like Jes the best. She has an amazing gift of helping you visualize the deep muscles in your body that you never suspected existed. In a matter of a few sessions, I am already feeling leaner, stronger, and more in tune with my body. This is a totally new feel to me, and I love it! Thank you, Jes!"

"Jessica is one of those rare instructors who possess an even temperament, a love for the subject matter, attentive dedication to making her students work hard and do it “right”, and a sense of humor which makes the learning fun and the exercises seem easier than what they are! I took Pilates classes from Jes for several months and I really enjoyed learning about the Pilates program and how the movements affect your body. Jes has an amazing depth of knowledge about human body physiology and she is very dedicated and professional in her instruction, while still maintaining a fun and humorous atmosphere – the perfect blend."

"I came to Jessica as an athlete training with a mixture of olympic, powerlifting and functional movements but living with significant hip pain. Jessica helped me find a healthier way to move by correctly activating hip and core stabilizers creating a balanced center while I continued with my training schedule. With daily practice I was pain free in a couple weeks."
- Jon Yeager, Santa Monica, CA
" I first came to pilates feeling nervous and cautious as I did not have a perfect body--I have scoliosis and TMJ difficulties. Well, Jes proved to me that STOTT™ Pilates about optimizing the body you have no matter who you are. I am one of those people who has to understand why I am doing something before I do it, and Jes has the ability to explain the tiniest movements clearly. Her manner is friendly, humorous, and informative. Jes has truly been a team member in my healing, and I am forever grateful for meeting her first on my pilates journey."
