As a native from Georgia, Berry found her way to Jackson in 2006. From a very young age she was highly involved in gymnastics as well as cheerleading. Similarly to Pilates, both of these sports require balance, efficiency, precision and coordination. Berry’s first introduction to Pilates was during her preparation for a hip arthroscopy. Pilates was also the main focus for rehabilitation from the procedure. Quickly she saw that the physical and mental benefits of Pilates were remarkable.
When I am not in the studio practicing Pilates you can find me skiing, mountain biking and rock climbing. As a mother of two little ones we spend most of our time in the Summer on the river, in the mountains and camping, while Winters we are primarily skier focused.
