JACLYN FORRESTER

TRAINING: Exercise Science BS, Balanced Body Master Instructor, STOTT Pilates, Registered Yoga Teacher 200hr

Jaclyn started Niche in 2017 with an extensive fitness background. She grew up in Radford, VA, and used to practice balance by walking the fences of her parents’ property. She came upon Pilates and immediately loved it for its focus on integrity, intention, and presence. Teaching Pilates gives her a sense of purpose, and owning Niche allows her to manifest her own community of people who lift each other up.

Her classes are sneaky hard, and very focused on form and alignment. Catch her Total Body Reformer class Tuesdays - Thursdays!

CHARIS NORDBERG

TRAINING: Mat Pilates 1-3 and Reformer 1-3…working on that certification!

Charis is from Moseley, VA, and loves Niche because the small class setting and utmost attention to proper form and detail made her swoon from the very first class she attended.

Her teaching style is thoughtful and energetic: she always wants it to be new, challenging, and not predictable. She has a ball teaching and hopes that vibe is contagious to her students!
