Jovanna Sangria Jovanna Sangria, Pilates Instructor/Aide

Jovanna is a classically trained Pilates instructor and former college tennis player and coach. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Communications and minor in Spanish from Hampton University. Upon graduation from college, Jovanna went through the Whole Body Method Pilates certification in Los Angeles. After being certified in 2011, Jovanna taught Pilates at Whole Body Method, Equinox, and currently teaches at White House Pilates in the South Bay. She has experience teaching Pilates and cross training to a variety of levels, from the pre and postnatal and professional athletes to clients with MS and Charcot-Marie tooth disease. Jovanna has a passion for healing people through movement. Jovanna fell in love with Pilates during her last semester of college. Though a college athlete, she needed one more physical education class. She chose Pilates to fulfill her class requirements, and immediately saw the positive effects of Pilates on her body. Pilates gave her more energy, core strength, and flexibility, all of which improved her performance on the tennis court. Aside from Pilates Jovanna has taught tennis to kids of all ages. She was a certified Professional Tennis Registry coach. She is also fluent in Tagalog and Spanish.
