Welcome Jessica Shinn!

Jessica is a certified Pilates instructor who completed her teacher training at Ellie Herman Studios in San Francisco.  Jessica started dance training at the age of 4 in tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop and modern and was introduced to Pilates by one of her ballet instructors.  After years of taking classes at several different academies, she decided to pursue a career in ballet.  Through her Pilates training, Jessica
found that the emphasis placed on core strengthening drastically improved her dance technique and the knowledge she gained contributed greatly to her teaching skills. Today, in addition to being a Pilates instructor, Jessica is also ballet dancer and teacher and has created her own ballet workout series to help tone the muscles, improve heart rate and strengthen the core. She is very excited to introduce this method to Bodytonic!  She is determined to help every client achieve their personal goals and lead the way to a healthier, happier lifestyle


BTP on Gilt City!

Bodytonic and Gilt City are at it again and partnering up to offer you some very special deals on Pilates classes!  This offer is particularly great because it is open to new clients, plus clients who have not visited us in 6 months or longer.  If you’ve been on a Pilates hiatus this is the perfect opportunity to jump back in!


Where to park in Pioneer Square


Did you know that Pioneer Square has multiple garages that offer parking spaces that are either comparable to or more affordable than street parking rates?  The 1st ave and Columbia garage and the Butler garage (at 2nd and James) both offer parking for $3/hr and are 1-2 blocks from the studio!  Sometimes you can pull right up to a parking spot across the street from the studio, but if not, hop over to one these garages so you can spend less time parking and more times pilatesing!  The City of Seattle produced a useful website showing the rates, locations, and real-time capacity of these garages – nifty!

Snots not Hot



The cold and flu season is upon us!  If you have a cold or the flu, please be considerate of your work out buddies and instructors and stay home from Pilates.  Workout environments are especially conducive to spreading germs, and while we are very careful about disinfecting equipment between sessions, we need your help to keep our community healthy and happy.

Private clients, if you feel like you are fighting off a cold or the flu, cancel with at least 24-hours notice to avoid being charged.

Duet, trio, and mat clients, you can always sign up for a make-up class if you are sick or fighting a bug off!  Plus you’ll benefit from and enjoy your workout more when you are closer to 100%. 😉

Need to make-up an equipment class, sign-up for an equipment make-up or a mat class!
