For musicians – special focus will be on exercises that help prevent and overcome effects from sitting too long and being under tension. Overall strength and flexibility as well as hand and wrist maintenance will be integrated into the class, plus a little Q&A time.

Jessie Mayes’ love of dance and fitness has taken her from dance lessons at age 7 to earning a B.F.A. in Dance Science; studying with several dance companies including the Radio City Rockettes; performing in Disneyland Parades; teaching dance; and now performing in musicals in Colorado theaters. Recently, she played Alonzo, a tabby alley cat in “Cats”.

Parallel to her dance activities Jessie earned her Pilates mat certification and has been an instructor for HB Pilates & Fitness since September 2019 for a variety of classes including Pilates mat, chair and cardio barre. Jessie is part of this unique team that transitioned from in-person to online classes during the COVID-19 shutdown to encourage movement and mobility using Pilates principles and a few simple props in a convenient format.

Testimonial from Barbara Gershman, SCDH Co-Pres.:
“Taking HB Pilates online classes 3-4 times a week has kept me moving throughout and after the pandemic. All the certified instructors are encouraging and inspiring and are experts in online teaching. Jillian Hardwick, owner of HB Pilates, makes all this possible.”
