Jessica Baack
Pilates Instructor

While pursuing a psychology degree, Jessica became intrigued with the science and philosophy of yoga and the effects that movement and meditation had on healing the body, mind and spirit. She attended the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA in 2002 and has attended several workshops and teacher trainings with Shiva Rea, Desiree Raumbaugh, Tias Little and Rolf Gates.

To bring depth to her teaching and improve her own practice, Jessica studied Thai yoga massage and the techniques and principles of Pilates. Pilates awakened her yoga practice, giving her the tools to connect more deeply with her body, bringing more freedom of movement and finding more inner strength. Jessica completed Course I (Mat Certification) and Course II (Beginning-intermediate Equipment Certification with Movement Insights) and continues her studies with Collette Stewart.

Jessica's teaching style is eclectic and reflects the influence and respect of all her great teachers and students. Her knowledge of human anatomy, genuine love of Pilates and yoga, and her free spirit make her teaching method scientific yet playful.

Jessica offers private/duet sessions at the Blue Mounds Pilates Center and group classes at the Blue Mounds Dharma Center.
