STOTT PILATES® Instructor JoAnn Smith has a B.A. in Special Education from William Paterson University located in New Jersey where she is originally from. She moved to Omaha after graduation to teach in the Omaha Public Schools system developing social and vocation skills for young adults with developmental disabilities.
JoAnn began practicing Pilates 12 years ago to help manage a low back issue. She started teaching Pilates shortly after seeing and feeling the physical benefits. She became certified as a STOTT PILATES® Instructor in 2011 and completed the Injuries and Special Populations training the following year.
Jo Ann has also completed the STOTT PILATES® Cadillac, Chair and Barrel, Total Barre™, CORE™ Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training™ and ZEN•GA® instructor trainings. The most recent training was Aerial Silks and she has discovered that is a fun way to diversify a Pilates workout. She is pursing a goal of becoming a Fully Certified STOTT PILATES® Instructor.
Her true Pilates passion is encouraging bereaved Moms to consider the value of Pilates work to manage and support the grief process.
