Pilates Instructor

Jessica, co-owner of Pilates Foundations of Texas, teaches Privates sessions, workshops, and holds Peak Pilates Certification courses. She is known for the powerful teaching methods she has developed for more than 10 years. Before she started teaching Pilates, Jessica spent most of her life with music, as she majored in Flute Performance. The specific posture required for practices and performances led to chronic pain and discomfort in her neck, wrist, back, and hips. Tired and unsuccessful from trying many different forms of strengthening exercises, she discovered Pilates after a major surgery that limited her from walking for 6 months.

Jessica understands the struggles clients face when they are introduced to a new concept. She struggled to find her body and movements at the beginning of her practice but the changes she felt after sessions rejuvenated her. Pilates is a mind and, body workout. It trains your mind to control your body so you have proper engagement and balance. And she not only teaches clients with the same passion that changed her, but develops new instructors to teach correctly. With her great leadership abilities and vast knowledge, she is now the first Korean-American bilingual Master instructor in the US (through Peak Pilates), and she is helping many foreign-speaking instructors overcome the language barrier and understand different aspects of Pilates. Her teaching skills help instructors fully engage and connect with their clients. Having taught more than 1,000 clients over the past 10 years, she understands that each ‘body’ is different. She customizes every session to fit your body and needs. With her second studio in Plano, TX, she is more excited than ever to build relationships that go beyond just simple exercise. Most importantly, Jessica is the fiercely proud mother of two children, which means balancing the career she loves with her desire to get dinner on the table in time!

KJ, co-owner of Pilates Foundations of Texas, is a Licensed Massage Therapist as well as a Certified Pilates Instructor from two different institutes. 

He has been active all his life and always thought being active would mean he would be pain-free. Oddly enough, he suffered a number of injuries (ruptured ACL, herniated disc, torn meniscus, torn ligaments in ankle, rotator cuff injuries to name a few) resulting in muscle compensation and imbalance in his body. Like most guys, KJ brushed off these injuries like it wasn’t a big deal until he met his wife Jessica and took one lesson of Pilates. Learning about body awareness and proper muscle engagement made him realize he kept his body vulnerable to injuries and pain.

As KJ started teaching Pilates, his passion for the human body grew. After benefitting from soft tissue treatment combined with body conditioning for his own injuries, KJ decided to learn more about the human body and soft tissue treatment. 

In his Pilates practice, KJ encountered clients with injuries that limited their active lifestyles. Pilates helped them strengthen their muscles and focus on body control, and manual therapy helped free up fascial restrictions, and give his clients increased mobility and decreased pain. 

For about a year and a half, KJ has worked in an orthopedic therapy center with professional athletes and active adults. Learning to treat different bodies, as well as injuries, to further help his clients, KJ combines teaching and providing manual therapy to those who are looking to eliminate pain and re-train their bodies. With a thorough knowledge of human anatomy, KJ strives to help people function without pain. Apart from his work, he loves spending time with his wife and two daughters who are 2 years and 4 years old.

Our Story

PILATES FOUNDATION OF TEXAS

Your body is made to function and we can help.

The Pilates Foundations of Texas is a team of a husband and wife. The Plano location was established in 2018 as a second studio with a passion to help people understand movement control. Our boutique studio uses customized Classical Pilates Methods and Orthopedic Bodywork to achieve your goals. We are fully furnished with traditional equipment from the most distinguished manufacturer in the field and are dedicated to optimizing your overall health.

VOLUNTARY BODYWORK

Pilates was developed in the 1920s by the legendary physical trainer Joseph M. Pilates. The benefits of Pilates can include:

  • flexibility Increased flexibility
  • strength Core strength
  • muscle Muscle tone
  • motion Range of motion
  • energy Energy
  • posture Enhanced posture
  • wellbeing Sense of well-being
  • pain Pain relief

INVOLUNTARY BODYWORK

Manual Therapy or Orthopedic Massage Therapy aims to find the root of your pain and discomfort. We look at your body as a whole and plan our treatments accordingly. We can free up any soft tissue related limitations to your body by altering our facial system with manual therapy. Joint mobilization, myofascial release, and PNF are some of the techniques we use to achieve better muscle and joint function. We call this involuntary bodywork because the therapist is making the client’s body change so they can better control their own body.
