Welcome Heagan! Our new Pilates Instructor!
Heagan will be teaching group classes on Sundays at 11:15 and 12:15 starting in November.
Heagan is a Portland Oregon native and graduated from the University of Oregon with a BS in Health an Science. She has always had a passion for fitness and health from a very young age. After moving to sunny California she enjoyed working out religiously at the Santa Monica stairs for many years. As a direct result, she suffered back and joint injuries in 2010 that took over 8 months to recover from. Her injury had a positive spin to it when it led to her Pilates. Through her Pilates practice she was able to relieve her back pain, improve her posture, and overall strength.
She developed a deep appreciation for the work which inspired her to pursue becoming a certified teacher. Eventually completing her 600 hour comprehensive training with Juliet Kaska, right here at JK Zen fitness. Right on the heels of her graduation, she jumped into the advance level, 6 month apprentice training under Juliet.
She has a passion for making people feel their best through the practice of Pilates and her goal at the end of each session is to have people feeling stronger, more flexible and relaxed.
