Jill Dailey is a true innovator of the dance barre fitness revolution on the West Coast. A degreed Kinesiologist, Jill found that her true passion was helping people align their bodies and transform their lives through fitness. Seeking the most advanced methods to sculpt the body, Jill became an early trainee of the famed Lotte Berk method. Taking what she learned through the Lotte Berk Method in New York City and her training as a Pilates Instructor, Jill brought barre to California and opened her first Studio in San Francisco in 2000. With a strong emphasis on creating a healthy spine and strong core, it uses micro-movements and stretches to tone the entire body. The Dailey Method classes not only help people get in the best shape of their lives but also helps to recover from or offset injuries and move more gracefully through life.
