What I do


I’m Jillian, a Restorative Exercise Specialist / personal trainer located in Ottawa/Gatineau.  I help people get rid of pain and dysfunction in their body through exercise and lifestyle changes. Whether it’s a bad knee, foot pain, leaky bladder (pelvic floor problems), back pain, or even low bone density, learning to move better can often drastically reduce or even eliminate certain types of pain and disease.  Email me, or call me, 819.210.0180 and lets chat about how we can work together to help you feel better.  I work  out of Holistic Roots in Ottawa, and I also do home visits.

Things like footwear, how much you sit, even how you walk can have a serious impact on the health of your body.  With a mixture of new movement strategies (changing HOW you move), Restorative Exercise™ (corrective exercises), and developing a more active lifestyle, it’s amazing how many issues can be alleviated (even if your doctor said surgery is the only option!).


If leaving your house is difficult (due to pain, injury, or a new baby) or you’re just lazy and want to stay in your jammies, I would love to come work with you in your house.  Or, you can take a class with me, or schedule a private session at Holistic Roots, 475 Cambridge Street South.

If you’re ready to make the transition to a healthy, active lifestyle, to take back control of your body, to get rid of pain and be healthy again, then drop me a line or give me a call!  I’ll help you figure out ways to get MORE active, to sit LESS (we all know that sitting kills,right?) to heal injuries, reduce pain all over your body, and prevent or reverse lots of health issues.

Living an active lifestyle doesn’t have to mean devoting hours to exercise or joining a gym.  Having a healthy, pain free body doesn’t have to mean getting orthotics in your shoes or a custom back support for your chair.  I can help you make adjustments to your current lifestyle so you can keep doing what you already do  in a way that is better for your body without any special equipment.  Just you and your body.  You’ll learn to make the most of your time so you can get more active with less effort (even at the office!).

Call me or email me to schedule a free phone consultation to talk about how I can help you and your family take the first step toward an active, pain free future, no matter what state of health you’re in right now, no matter what lifestyle you live.  Don’t just take my word for it, see what others have to say about their experience with Live Aligned workshops and coaching!
