Janelle Abbott Staley

Janelle first discovered Pilates while pursuing her BFA in Ballet Performance at the University of Utah, and quickly discovered how the practice changed and lengthened her body, enhanced her muscle awareness, and deepened her mind-body connection. While training and dancing professionally in New York City, she received her mat certification from Power Pilates, and also trained with Tanya Becker, founder of Physique 57 barre method. While there, she taught wait-listed classes at their flagship studio in Manhattan for over three years. Upon moving to New England, she also became certified in Exhale Spa’s Core Fusion. After dancing on stages across the country, world, and on Broadway, Janelle decided it was time to combine her experiences and plant some roots! She brings her lifelong love of movement and passion for wellness to each of her classes and sessions – and is thrilled to be joining the CJPT & Pilates team!

When she’s not in the studio, Janelle can be found playing with her two little girls Willow and Penelope, dancing, exploring the nearby mountains and beaches, practicing Yoga, and drinking coffee.
