Certification: Pilates Method Alliance (PMA)
I grew up in the mountains of Huntsville, Utah. I was always very active growing up and had a passion for the outdoors whether I was biking, hiking, climbing, doing yoga, or skiing. I started my Pilates journey in 2007; I attended my first Pilates session with my mother who had been going for a couple of weeks and thought I would like it. I was instantly hooked; I loved how it challenged my body in so many different ways. I went consistently and saw my body changing after a few months of practice. I felt stronger, leaner, taller, healthier, and confident. My instructor at the time was a friend of the family and offered to help me get certified. I am PMA certified and a member of the Pilates Method Alliance, Peak Pilates trained on Wunda Chair and Reformer, attended Armchair and Reformer workshop with Julian Littleford, and pursuing my Stott Pilates Comprehensive Certification.

Certification: Cara Reeser Pilates
Jennifer Durning received her first certification in Pilates in 2001 at the Ellie Herman Studio of San Francisco. She went on to obtain a certification from The Pilates Method Alliance followed by an intensive at The Pilates Center in Boulder in 2002. Knowing she wanted to focus on rehabilitation and injury prevention, she immediately went on to study the techniques of Vladimir Janda, M.D. with LIzz Roman in San Francisco. In 2004, Jennifer met Cara Reeser during a class for back issues and pain which confirmed her desires to learn how use her Pilates knowledge to help people with chronic pain. Interested in all things body, Jennifer completed a year of training with Eric Franklin in The Franklin Method followed by studies in Yoga. Upon receiving her Yoga certification with with Sianna Sherman in San Francisco, Jennifer narrowed her Yoga focus to Iyengar and worked with various Iyengar Yoga teachers in the Bay area. In October 2010, Jennifer completed a Mentorship/Masters Program in Pilates with Wendy LeBlanc Arbuckle which facilitated a much-needed integration in her teaching whereby she learned to combine Pilates with the other modalities she was studying including: Hanna Somatic Education, The Alexander Technique, Aston Kinetics, Katy Bowman (Nutritious Movement), and The Feldenkrais Method®. Over the years, Jennifer has attended workshops from a list of teachers that include: Kathy Grant, Irene Dowd, Michelle Larson, Elizabeth Larkham, Madeline Black, Jean Sullivan, Rael Isacowitz, Amy Taylor Alpers, Rachel Taylor Segel, Deborah Kolwey, Jules Mitchell, Judith Lasater, Ada Lusardi, Leslie Howard, Jin Sung, Jessie Holland, Katy Bowman, Phillip Beach, and Gil Hedley.
After dealing with her own back pain in 2000, and before becoming a Pilates teacher, Jennifer became a certified Massage Therapist through The McKinnon Institute in Oakland, CA as well as The Acupressure Institute in Berkeley. In December of 2014, she continued her massage studies in Structural Integration and became a Core Integration Therapist in The Morales Method. With the help of her amazing teacher, Marty Morales, Jennifer learned to combine her visual assessment skills and her manual skills which, she finds, enhances her hands-on cueing and allows her to manually address issues that are limiting movement in a session.
In 2017, Jennifer completed Cara Reeser’s post-graduate training, The Heritage Training, which focuses solely on the work of Kathy Grant. Currently, Jennifer deepens her studies with Cara Reeser and physical therapist, Jeremy Laverdure in a called program called Movement Science Made Simple, an evidence-based approach to motor learning, pain science, biomechanics, and movement training.
