jenJennifer Anderson-Ehrlich, Pilates Instructor

Jen was born and raised on a farm in rural Iowa. Growing up playing any sport under the sun, she earned a scholarship to play basketball, graduating from Metro State in 2003 with a degree in Human Performance and Sport. Returning to Metro State to receive a degree in Elementary Education, she then taught Montessori and Dual-Language for Denver Public Schools. During this time, she discovered the Pilates Method as a way to keep her temperamental spine happy; immediately discovering both the physical and mental benefits. However, it wasn’t until after the birth of her daughter, Simone, in 2012 when her low back issues began affecting her day-to-day quality of life. In early 2014, desperate for respite, she came to BodyIntel as a patient. Inspired by the BodyIntel staff and how Pilates re-educates and heals the body, Jen committed to a career change in 2015, pursuing her 500 hour comprehensive certification through Body Arts and Science International (BASI). Jen believes her Pilates journey saved her spine and allowed her to remain active with minimal restrictions during and after the pregnancy of her second child, Sebastian. 

As a Pilates practitioner and trainer, Jen has been able to move better, regain her active lifestyle and best of all – manage her pain on a daily basis. She is compassionate and enjoys working with people of all fitness levels – making each session challenging, movement focused and fun. Passionate about helping people to move safely and well, her goal is to help her clients to continue with their favorite activities, all while enjoying the many benefits of Pilates.
