About Joyelle

Joyelle is an experienced Pilates and dance instructor, who has worked in the field for 16 years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from the University of Michigan and a Master's of Fine Arts Degree in Dance from the Ohio State University. During her time in New York City as a ballet dancer for Dance Theatre of Harlem, Joyelle suffered an injury and used Physical Therapy and Pilates to help her get back in shape. She became a STOTTSPILATES Certified Instructor teaching at the University of Michigan while continuing to dance professionally. Since then, Joyelle has balanced her love of dance with her love for Pilates. She helps people feel at home in their bodies. She has worked with a wide-range of clients in diverse settings, from young girl scouts to 80 year olds, elite athletes to business people, private classes to large master classes, and with both men and women. Whatever the group or individual, Joyelle brings both the energy and the fun to workouts that are focused, safe, and effective.

Who "Elle" is

Columbus, Ohio, United States
I am a teacher specializing in Pilates, modern, ballet, and contemporary dance. I am on the go and on a budget, but I also need quality "fuel" for my job and responsibilities. Being gluten intolerant (diagnosed by Doctor), does not make it any easier. My Frugal Gal blog is full of recipes that are tested and have helped me to do what I love. I hope you enjoy them.
