She received her Pilates Teacher Certification from Pilates Method Alliance and The Pilates Institute of Southern California, a program of 800+ hours.

FORM Pilates LA | Maria Emmetti

Maria Emmetti

Certified Pilates Instructor

Maria grew up on the east coast, where she began her love of movement with dance. Once in LA, she pursued an acting and dance career before creating her family. Having 3 children back to back put some strain on her spine, and daily visits to the chiropractic care failed. Desperate, she tried Pilates. Being a movement enthusiast, it was an immediate fit. After 8 years of being a devotee to her practice, she enrolled in the Teacher Training Program withThe Pilates Institute of Southern California (PISC), where she graduated in 2005. Her second certification from The Pilates Center, Boulder followed in 2010. Maria continues her Pilates education by attending seminars, workshops, and classes regularly.

FORM Pilates LA | Jasmine Gannam

Jasmine Gannam

Certified Pilates Instructor

Having grown up a lover of athletics, Jasmine turned to Pilates for a new post-rehabilitation fitness routine. She fatefully ended up in the hands of a direct descendent of Romana Kryzanowska, who enthusiastically gave her her formal introduction. After years of practice as a student, she began her comprehensive certification under a descendant of Romana in 2008. Jasmine credits Pilates as a critical contributing factor to two healthy pregnancies (which included twins!), and she's known to describe it as a "Lifelong Method." Her students range from those entirely new to the Pilates method to dedicated athletes who weave in and out of the Pilates system in ways that benefit their sport or re-patterning previous injuries. She finds the most joy in honoring each individual's unique needs and helping them find their definition of progress.

She took her first Pilates session at Equinox and was immediately hooked. Mehgee then took a leap of faith and joined the Equinox Pilates Training Institute Comprehensive Program. After 450+ hours of training, her passion for the trade blossomed. She loves how Pilates improved not only her body but her mind/body connection as well.

FORM Pilates LA | Jessi Lucatorto

Jessi Lucatorto

Certified Pilates Instructor

Jessi Lucatorto began dancing at the age of three, which quickly turned into a deep passion. When Jessi was 10 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis. Although dance did not help the back pain, it kept her grounded. When Jessi was 15 years old, she trained at Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater in NYC. She returned to Southern California to perform with her dance company before her first spine surgery in 2007; this was an absolute heartbreak. Jessi could no longer take the wear and tear of dance. She was introduced to Pilates in 2009 before her second spinal surgery, and it truly healed her. Once she started a regular Pilates regime, her body and spirit improved quickly, allowing her to study dance at the University of Arizona. She completed her Intensive Instructor Training while in college and became a Certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition for a more holistic approach. Jessi loves diving deeper into the Pilates Method with her clients and taking them through their journey!
