I've been working with Jill for years now. She's by far one of the best and most thorough Pilates instructors I've worked with.... and I've been doing pilates for 20 years. She's taken me through many phases in my life and varied the training as needed to my situation. Sometimes a great intense workout, other times, due to injuries..a more therapeutic approach. For those reasons ...I've come to trust her with knowing how to keep my body healthy and in the best possible shape. She's the best!!


Jillian is one of the best health and wellness practitioners out there. She truly takes the time to get to know you and your body and finds the perfect plan to meet your goals. She is very knowledgable of the human body and how it moves. Some of my extremely bothersome chronic pain issues started disappearing soon after starting working with Jillian. I developed a stronger body and mind, and my weekly sessions kept me motivated throughout the week to continue working on staying healthy and on track.


One of the main reasons we started pilates was to help my husband's posture and core strength, as well as my flexibility.  Jillian has worked wonders with all of these things. She immediately recognized what my husband needed to do to get stronger and modified exercises to fit his needs. Other instructors had done the same - but Jillian's modifications weren't about giving him an easier exercise, they were about getting him to the next level. And while she pays special attention to my husband's issues, she always makes sure that I have exercises that will help me reach my goals, and most importantly - always keeps a close eye on us to ensure that we're doing the moves properly and safely.


Jillian also has a way of explaining the exercises that really resonates with me. I can picture which muscles she's talking about, and it's always clear what the goal is. And she can always tell when I'm doing things incorrectly, even when I think I've got it right - she can see when my thighs are doing the work my core should be doing, or when my arms are an inch too high... my husband and I both always felt like we were getting personal attention and working with someone that had our best interest at heart. She helped us get closer to our goals and would even send us home with guidelines on stretches that would help us safely achieve them. I couldn't recommend Jillian more, and am thankful that we've had the opportunity to work with her. 


I can say without hesitation, that Jillian is the best pilates instructor I have worked with.  Her compassion, humor, patience and knowledge are exemplary.  After working with her for over a year, I noticed vast improvements in my strength (specifically core), my flexibility, and my posture.  We were devastated when she left Bodyscape and are anxious and excited to work with her again in the future.  


Jill was my Pilates instructor and a great help to me following shoulder surgery. I would highly recommend her. She was able to make something that could be very uncomfortable fun and therapeutic at the same time.


I trained with Jillian weekly at Bodyscape for about two years.  When I started I was suffering from a shoulder injury resulting in a frozen shoulder.  Jillian helped me overcome my injuries.  During that time she coordinated with my physical therapist and weight trainer.  Thanks to Jillian I was able to take up triathlon, running, and cycling.  In particular her core work greatly improved my running performance.  Jillian is patient, skilled, and personable.  


Jillian Stein worked with me for over two years as my Pilates instructor.  I would describe her as the best instructor I have worked with in the eighteen years I have been doing Pilates. She was able to quickly access my physical weaknesses and keep me fit.  Jillian is a people person and I would highly recommend her as an instructor.


It was a pleasure to work with Jillian. She was an excellent teacher, who customized the training she provided to my individual needs.  Jillian was also very professional, started our sessions on time, and was always client-focused and enthusiastic during our sessions.
