Jennifer Van Deausen

Jennifer Van Deausen has always had a life of fitness. Growing up was filled with horses, ski slopes, swimming, running, and gymnastics. She took her first fitness job at the age of 18 in 1987 at Mariner Square Athletic Club. First working at the front desk, but eventually showing clients how to use the fitness equipment. During college she majored in Nursing and Nutrition. Realizing that Nursing and Nutrition in a hospital setting at the time were not as holistic as she would have hoped she returned to fitness. Working as a fitness therapist in 1993 in Orange County she discovered how rewarding it was to truly help people discover how good they could feel. Her path has taken her through the UCSD Personal Trainer Extension program back in 1996. Then led her through massage therapy school at IPSB in 2000, and finally to Pilates. Jennifer Van Deausen received her STOTT PILATES certification in 2002, and opened up what is now Pegasus Pilates in 2003.

Certified Dance Instructor-ADTA
Pegasus Aerial Pilates Fitness Intern

A humble study of all things dance and performance, Tara has trained and professionally taught a variety of disciplines from ballet, jazz, modern, tap, lyrical and hip-hop at studio's throughout San Diego and Orange County. In her late teens she apprenticed as a student teacher and eventually went on to achieve her dance teaching certification with the American Dance Teacher’s Association in 1996, while also majoring in Dance and Performance Art at UCI. During the course of her ballet training Tara was introduced to Pilates and immediately fell in love with the practice. She eventually incorporated much of the Mat fundamentals in her dance class warm-up routines to help her students improve core strength, balance and flexibility. Tara is grateful to have enjoyed a successful career as a professional dance and performing artist but her most heartfelt achievements have come from being a dance instructor. Combined with her life long passion for health, wellness, and helping others she decided it was only fitting to take her career to the next level by adding Pilates to her teaching repertoire. Tara is also a certified BarreVite instructor.
