09: Pilates: What It Is, Benefits, and More!


Ashley’s guest today is Jennifer Saltzman who has been a Pilates instructor in the Seattle area for 21 years. She graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in modern dance in 1991.  After moving to Seattle she completed her certification as an instructor in 1995.  She ran her own Pilates studio for seven years and then was hired by the prestigious Bellevue Club, where she has been instructing individuals and groups for the past 14 years.

Jennifer describes Pilates as a whole body workout, a series of exercises that can be tailored to the individual for maximum strength, flexibility and balance. It is a most efficient way of working the body’s core, a complex series of muscles extending beyond the abs. She emphasizes the importance of maintaining mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health, as well the significance of having a sense of community in life.

You will be fascinated by Jennifer’s personal journey from illness and fatigue to complete health through Pilates, diet and Dr. Wallach’s supplement recommendations.  Ashley asks her what 3 items she would take with her if she had to live on a desert island.  You’ll love her answer!
