Shaky-Jake Finds Her Groove

Endless foot tapping and arm swinging earned Jill the family nickname Shaky-Jake,– “the one who couldn’t stop moving”. And that has proved true for the last four decades:

  • Moving in 1984, decked out in leg warmers and a head band exercising to Jane Fonda’s workout tapes.
  • Moving in college dance class despite the ballet instructor saying she had a lousy point to her foot.
  • Moving for 10 years as a professional “aerobic instructor” bounding with endless enthusiasm for her class yet plenty of repetitive stress injuries.
  • Moving and studying cutting edge alternative forms like Pilates, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Yoga and post-rehab exercise, before mainstream fitness recognized their benefit.

 

These moments of movement led Jill to the perfect career path of continually discovering the Joy of Movement. Teaching fitness and movement since 1985, Jill has racked up certifications, been featured in regional magazines and Seattle local television. She’s moved beyond the 10,000 hour mark of expertise within traditional fitness and mind/body somatic movement. Her passionate approach inspires those who say “no” to the drudgery of working out and “yes” to the pleasure of moving with mind-body-self connection.

A Nia teacher since 1996 and becoming a Nia Faculty Trainer in 2012, Jill is dedicated to helping people feel better via “integrated conditioning” — blending the science of the body, conscious movement & self-care within their body, mind, emotions and spirit. Integrated conditioning helps people remove pain, increase athletic performance and optimize everyday joy & wellness. In 2013, Jill opened The Center for Movement & Healing in Seattle Washington thus attracting a community of people who want to Center.Move and Heal.

Comfortable presenting and teaching to large groups or small individualized sessions, Jill combines her in-depth experience with contagious delight for the human body and an authentic compassionate communication-style.
