Jessa Welsh joined MPS as a client in 2010, searching for a way to exercise despite severe spinal injuries. Her life changed when she discovered she could complete a full body workout without further injuring herself, and while strengthening the weakened areas of her back. She dedicated herself to learning so she could share the power of Pilates to help with injuries, illnesses, or muscle imbalances. Jessa completed MPS Mentorship Program Level 1 in 2017 and Level 2 in 2018. Her passion and experience inspire her clients at MPS.
