Eshael M. Johnson, M.S.
Rediscovering Athletic Grace: Eshael’s Fitness Journey
Eshael Johnson is a classically trained Pilates instructor, GYROTONIC® teacher, Gyro kinesis trainer, and former semi-professional cheerleader. Her athletic journey began during Super Bowl III, sparking a love for all things athletic. A temporary setback from a car accident that shattered her kneecap couldn’t dampen her spirit.
Later in life, recurring knee trouble led her to Pilates, which her trainer recommended. Since 2009, Eshael has rediscovered grace, ease of movement, and core strength through Pilates, proving that exercise can lead to “better living through strength and grace™.”
In 2017, Eshael committed to the comprehensive Pilates certification process, expanding her expertise. In 2021, she incorporated the GYROTONIC® method into her repertoire, with the GYROKINESIS® method soon to follow. Eshael’s dedication to ongoing learning ensures she brings the latest movement practices to her clients.
Tailored Fitness for Diverse Needs
Eshael thrives on creating engaging group classes and personalized private lessons. Her expertise extends to diverse client populations, including those with spinal injuries, cardiac concerns, joint replacements, vertigo/Meniere’s disease, seniors, and athletes. With Eshael, fitness isn’t one-size-fits-all; it’s a tailored experience for everyone.
Firm, Empathetic Coaching
Known for her firm yet empathetic coaching style, Eshael is passionate about assisting clients in reaching their fitness goals. Her belief in “better living through strength and grace™” is a motto and a guiding principle in her approach.
