We are located in the beautiful Redwood Village where views from the studio include a wide expanse of open forest and nature. An intimate, private studio offers a peaceful setting to address any musculo skeletal issue in a safe environment. Whether you are recovering from an injury, dealing with chronic pain, or just want to improve your strength and flexibility, Pacific Pilates is a great place to start!


Jennifer Murphy, MPT graduated from Samuel Merritt College in 2000 with a Masters in Physical Therapy. Quickly thereafter, she enrolled in a year long intensive Manual Therapy course with John Seivert in Grass Valley. When pilates became a critical adjunct in her practice, she completed her pilates training and became certified by The Pilates Method Alliance in 2005.

As an undergraduate, Jennifer received her Bachelors degree from Stanford University majoring in Human Biology. While at Stanford, Jennifer was co-captain of the Women’s Track and Field Team and earned two time All-American Honors while representing her country at the World University games in Fukuoka, Japan.

She now enjoys chasing her two small children while keeping balance between her pilates practice, running and swimming.
