About Me
Jennifer Mann is a fully certified, 2nd Generation Master Pilates Instructor in Sarasota County, Florida.  She fell in love with pilates and its benefits after dealing with personal injuries.  After being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer she used pilates to regain her strength and range of motion even with lymphedema. As a mom who has raised two children, she realizes how valuable personal time is and works with you to get optimal results.

Jennifer has taken over 1,000 hours of pilates and physical therapy/injury specific training and taught over 5,000 private sessions.  She received her 200-hour Master Certification under the mentorship of Lolita San Miguel, who was certified by Joseph H.
