Valerie Heckel: Featured Teacher December 2018

December 16, 2018

 The Essentials

Name: Valerie Heckel 

Nickname: Val

DOB: January 25th, West Point New York- to 2 army parents

Raised mostly in Northern Virginia 



BFA in Dance Performance with a Musical Theater Minor from University of the Arts in Philadelphia.

I moved to LA to pursue being a dancer and actor in the entertainment industry.


Valerie's Pilates Love Story:

I was formally introduced to Pilates by Juliet Kaska at JK Zen Fitness, where I also studied to become a certified teacher. I fell in love with the principles of Pilates and the Zen family at 
JK Zen. Pilates has been a whole body and mind positive outlet in my life. Pilates has transformed my  life and I would love to help bring a positive Pilates experience to everyone!


Valerie’s Favorite Pilates Sequence:

It would have to be the Long Stretch Series. It has and will always be a series that pushes and challenges the my body’s limits.  


Valerie's Trouble Spot:

Hip strength is something I have been working on strengthening and stretching. That IT Band!


Favorite Part of Teaching Pilates:

Helping each person become a stronger person inside and out. I love working in the class setting but especially in privates to help zone in and make those leaps and bounds for my clients!
