As a dancer with over 25 years in the movement arts and fitness industries, Janelle is an experienced dance, Pilates, and barre fitness instructor. She is a Power Pilates certified Level II Mat instructor, and currently teaches at Evolve Mindful Movement in Portsmouth, NH. She has taught barre fitness at Physique 57 in New York City and at Exhale Spa in Boston. ‚Äč Janelle's lifelong love of movement and a career in dance has led her to many forms of mind-body wellness and conditioning. She first trained in Pilates apparatus while pursuing her BFA in Ballet at the University of Utah, and quickly discovered how the practice changed her body, core strength, and muscle awareness. She continued training in New York City and eventually received her Mat I certification at the Power Pilates flagship studio. Shortly after, Janelle was invited to train with Tanya Becker, the founder of the Physique 57 Barre method, and joined their elite team of instructors in 2008. Utilizing the principles of Pilates along with yoga- and ballet-inspired strengthening and flexibility exercises, Janelle found Barre fitness to be a challenging and amazingly effective marriage of her favorite tools. As a senior instructor, she taught wait-listed classes and celebrity clientele at Physique 57's flagship Manhattan studios for over three years, and was featured in their first series of workout DVDs and videos. Upon moving to New England, Janelle became certified in Exhale Spa's Barre and Cardio Barre, and taught weekly classes at their Back Bay studio. Janelle's love for classical Pilates was recently rekindled while cross-training for a dance company tour in 2017, and she completed her Mat II certification with Cherly Turnquist in Providence, RI. Janelle continues to be fascinated and inspired by the many benefits of regular Pilates practice, and attributes much of her continued success as a dancer (into her 40s) and injury prevention to its powers. She has received additional training in mat work with props and for specialized populations at the Power Pilates headquarters in NYC. She currently teaches regular dance, barre, and mat Pilates group classes and private sessions at Evolve Mindful Movement in Portsmouth, NH, and is a faculty member of the Dance Annex Studio in Kittery, ME. www.janelleabbottstaley.com
