Hey Y'all! I'm Jackie & I'm a Santa Monica based Pilates Instructor
Updated: May 18, 2020
Hey, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Southern California! My name is Jacqueline Hinton, but everyone calls me Jackie. I've lived in Santa Monica with my husband and my puppy baby for a little over 10 years. I am a multi-disciplined Pilates Instructor, professional dancer, choreographer, actor, and movement educator. I am also the CEO & Founder of Good Citizen, a Pilates lifestyle company that designed the world’s first personal Pilates loops. Yep! You don’ have to share the communal Pilates loops at the Pilates studio anymore, but I’ll get into that more another time.
I’m originally from Austin, Texas and moved to Los Angeles in 2002 after graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance. That’s also where I first discovered Pilates as part of my curriculum to stay injury free. Immediately following graduation, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my professional dance career, and I’ve had amazing opportunities performing in television, stage, and film productions, while touring the world.
In 2006, I completed my comprehensive Pilates certification through the PhysicalMind Institute on all Pilates Apparatus and Pilates Matwork, while studying under Maria Leone of Bodyline LA in Beverly Hills, CA. I work with clientele of all levels and lifestyles from professional dancers and athletes, film and television performers, youths, adults, and those recovering from major injuries or illnesses. I continually attend classes, workshops, and continuing education courses to keep my Pilates knowledge expanding for myself and my clients.
I teach private Pilates sessions, duets, and group classes in Santa Monica at Good Body Pilates studio. I also teach in-home clients, as well as events for businesses, charities, and corporate events. I am an effective Pilates teacher, while maintaining the Pilates principals, along with attention to detail and movement quality. Importantly, I tailor each client's workout to their own individual needs. I enjoy challenging my clients and pushing them to the next level.
Make sure and follow my blog for all things Pilates, and I look forward to working with you IRL!
