Jeanette Palmer

Jeanette Palmer has over thirty years of teaching experience in the field of movement, dance and fitness.  Ballet trained at Walnut Hill School of the Performing Arts and the Boston Conservatory of Music, Jeanette has had a distinguished performing career, including the Broadway theatre, New York City Opera at Lincoln Center, and Radio City Music Hall.

Jeanette found her way to Pilates when chronic pain threatened to bring her performing career to a premature end. Through Pilates (and stretching) she was rehabilitated and continued to dance professionally for another 13 years. Given her triumph over her injuries and her lifelong passion for movement and dance, becoming a certified Pilates teacher was the logical next step.

Ms. Palmer is on the adjunct faculty of the Graduate Center at CUNY, is the Pilates instructor to the Women’s Swim Team at Columbia University, has been teaching pilates for over at eleven years at Body Strength and the New Dance Group. She has also been invited by the Cirque du Soleil to teach Pilates workshops to their “Quidam” company in Philadelphia.  Jeanette also has a thriving private practice working with clients in their own homes, many of whom have physical challenges and limitations, requiring unique, personalized programming.

Originally certified in Pilates through IMX in the mid 90’s, Jeanette discovered the LindaFit program in 2004.  She was so pleased with the program she asked Linda Farrell if she could assist at a future training and five years later is the senior teaching assistant for LindaFit
