Te'yana Jett, Pilates
With two years of fitness teaching experience, Te’yana is no stranger to physical activity. Her history in movement started at the age of 6, while in middle school, and followed her throughout her high school (Franklin Learning Center) and college years (Virginia Commonwealth University). At the age of 15, she became a movement instructor for Yes! And... Theater company ( a non profit that provides theater programs to inner city youth from ages 4-18). After years of teaching movement to younger children, Te’yana decided it was time to add to her repertoire. She signed up for Pilates classes at Urban Front Pilates and knew right away she wanted to get a deeper understanding of the method. Within a few months, Te’yana received her certifications to become an instructor through Power Pilates. Since then she has been Teaching for various gyms throughout Philadelphia. Te’yana is currently in the process of adding more certifications to expand her skill set. "I’ve always wanted a career in teaching movement of some sort. I know I made the right decision because when I have to teach I say ‘I’m going to class’ rather than ‘I’m going to work’. That makes me happy”.
