Jackie Hester started her Pilates journey in 2010. She was first introduced to Pilates in a gym setting and wanted to learn more about the movements and exercise so she started taking classes at Absolute Pilates. Later, she was introduced to Barre classes when Absolute Pilates built out a Barre studio. She fell in love with the way Pilates and Barre classes made her feel so she decided she would pursue getting certified so she could share her passion with others. Her intention has always been to help people lead healthier lives and feels sharing her love for Pilates and Barre is a great way to do so.
Jackie received her Barre, Mat, and Tower certifications from Balanced Body and her Reformer certification from Reformation Pilates. Her background is in cheerleading and gymnastics. She attended Georgia Southern University, receiving her Bachelors Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. She is a dedicated and loving wife and mother. Jackie has a passion for making people feel their best through the practice of Pilates and Barre and her goal at the end of each session is to have people feeling stronger, more flexible, and relaxed.
