Our Instructors

Jean Rattle- Pilates

Jean has a Master of Science degree from McGill University, where she studied biogeochemical cycling in northern ecosystems. She has always been interested in challenging her body and trying new forms of movement that require focus, control and grace – whether it’s dance, gymnastics, synchronized swimming, or aerial arts. After moving to Chicago and taking her first Pilates class, she quickly became hooked. In addition to the physical challenge, Jean enjoys being a Pilates instructor because of her passion for teaching, having worked as a college professor for five years before moving to Los Angeles.

Jean studied both Classical/East Coast and West Coast styles of Pilates before completing her certification through BASI. She was attracted to BASI’s rigorous approach to teaching movement and emphasis on correct alignment while respecting the original Pilates repertoire. She loves working with both new students as well as more experienced Pilates practitioners.
