Educator, BodyTree Academy

Regional Director of Education in Asia (EBFA Global) 

Jerry is an energetic and dedicated teacher. His mission in life is ‘To teach and inspire people to take changes that would improve their quality of life.’ Jerry’s greatest fulfilment in teaching came from experiencing how physical changes in his students’ bodies transformed other aspects of their lives.


Jerry studied with many world-renowned teachers. Pilates Master Teacher and Elder, Ron Fletcher’s (1921-2011) emphasis on excellence influenced him to constantly explore ways to develop his teaching skills. Jerry’s greatest strength is his ability to adapt and adjust teaching methods to different learning personalities or complex physical issues, to make learning simple yet effective. Jerry is actively involved in mentoring Pilates Teachers so that they can in turn bring more impactful change to more people.


In his last 19 years of teaching in the fitness industry, Jerry has frequently helped people with knee, back, shoulder and neck problems. He especially loved and taught many runners, golfers, tennis players, skiers, yogis and dancers to improve their sports performance using Pilates. Jerry’s most recent stint is teaching Pilates to the elite Cirque Du Soleil’s Kooza to prepare them for their high level performance. Coupled with his experience in teaching people with serious lower back pain in his ‘Get Back On Track’ program, Jerry strongly believes that Pilates is a critical foundation to any movement program.
