Upon completing his MFA in Dance from Temple University in 2001, Jeff continued to teach and dance professionally, but never lost his love for how the body worked. In 2002 Jeff became certified to teach Advanced Pilates Mat, going on to become fully certified on all apparatus in 2003 by the Physical Mind Institute in New York City. Since then, while teaching Pilates full time, Jeff has constantly expanded his knowledge of the body.
He has studied many exercise forms including yoga and weight training, and has completed an extensive advanced certification in 2007 with master teacher Karen Carlson. During this program Jeff was used consistently as a demonstrator for many of the most advanced forms, and continues to do so in Karen’s subsequent certifications for other trainers. Jeff incorporates his knowledge of movement, anatomy, and both therapeutic and functional training into his Pilates teaching. Recently Jeff was honored to be listed as “One of Ten Pilates Instructors You Should Know” in Philadelphia Magazine.
