Jodi Brinkman

Jodi Brinkman
Jodi is originally from Buffalo New York. Early on she recognized her love of singing and the stage and in 1999 completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre. She worked as a professional singer/actress from 2002-2008, in Denver, New York, and Cleveland. Aerobic, yoga, and weight training were always a permanent fixture in her life, but never did movement make the most sense to her than when she began mastering the art of the classical Pilates mat work. She studied under Balanced Body's Master Instructor and 2nd generation teacher Troy McCarty, owner of Cleveland's renowned White Cloud Studios. At the end of 2007 Jodi became certified and helped develop a full reformer studio at the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland, which is now a thriving Pilates studio. However, with the mountains calling her, Jodi said good-bye to her beloved clients of Cleveland and relocated back to Denver in late 2010. She enjoys her new active clients in the Rocky Mountain region, working with all varieties of bodies. Through her own practice of the method and working with 1st and 2nd generation teachers, she has opened up a world of strength and length for both herself as well as her students. Jodi is certified with the Pilates Method Alliance.

Erin Pickus

Erin Pickus
Erin was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio where she lives with her husband and three children. She describes herself growing up as a free-spirited child with a great sense of adventure. She fell in love with the physical practice of yoga, but it was the overall sense of calm she felt after that took her by surprise. She began to seek yoga practice as a way to bring much needed healing into her own life. A few years later in 2004, Erin became a certified Yoga teacher under the Yoga Alliance and continued to attend various workshops and more teacher trainings on various topics of health, meditation and yoga. Currently Erin is certified at the advanced 500hr level in Therapeutic Yoga, is a certified Reikki master and is also a practitioner of Kriya Yoga. Erin feels she can relate very well to others and for this reason has taught various styles of yoga including, Kids’s Yoga, Mommy and Me, Prenatal and more. She currently teaches Basics Vinyasa, Slow Flow and Prenatal Yoga at Chagrin Yoga and also sees clients privately. She has had the privilege of leading a 300hr. teacher training at Chagrin Yoga, where she also teaches a variety of workshops throughout the year. Whatever style of yoga Erin teaches to her students, her intention is to focus on the healing aspects of yoga. Erin respects each student as they all come to yoga from different backgrounds and are all dealing with different issues that is unique to them and their own experiences. Her intention is to guide each student to respect themselves and their own bodies, while providing a safe space for them to practice. It is also Erin’s intention to provide her students with different techniques and methods to help them achieve higher understanding of themselves so they may feel empowered.
