Jennifer Van Deausen Owner/Manager

 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.


Kristina Halkowycz 

     Hi, my name is Kristina Halkowycz. I was born and raised in Union, New Jersey. About 10 years ago my husband and I decided to make the move to San Diego, California. I attended Seton Hall University and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Broadcasting, with a minor in Russian. After college I worked in the television industry for over 5 years and had experience in everything from running camera, audio, chyron, to master control. I decided to make a career change and become a Pilates Instructor and could not be happier! I loved working in production, but realized my passion was Pilates because it gives me the opportunity to help individuals achieve their fitness goals and to rehabilitate current or past injuries that cause each individual to experience mild, but often chronic discomfort. There is no need to live in pain or without the physique you have always wanted. I am excited to have been given the tools and training needed to become a Certified Pilates Instructor that will enable me to successfully help you to both get in amazing shape while ridding your body of the aches and pains that are typically associated with muscle imbalances, and current or past injuries, to name a few from a long list of various other reasons one might be experiencing either acute or widespread pain throughout their body. I have been actively involved in Pilates Instruction since I discovered it is my true passion and am now Certified in beginner to advanced Pilates exercises which include, but are not limited to, mat/floor Pilates, The Reformer, The Cadillac, The Wunda Chair, The Ladder Barrel, and various other pieces of small apparatus
