Jill Vonderhaar Nader
, PT,PMA,CertifiedPilates Instructor

A native of Northern Kentucky, Jill graduated from St. Louis University with a BS, PT. She spent the majority of her 20-year clinical career with The Christ Hospital where she was part of the Performing Arts Program, treating professional dancers, musicians and singers.

Throughout her career, Jill has enhanced her knowledge and skills by studying with some of the most-respected professionals and at well-known programs in the field of Pilates. Jill has extensively studied the body and how it works. She is trained in many types of hands on-techniques that can often “fix” problems in patients which have previously been labeled “unfixable.” By combining this knowledge of hands-on work with a keen eye to movement, Jill can skillfully get to the root of physical problems that are causing pain and correct them. Many patients with chronic issues actually perform better at their sport and activity after physical therapy.

Jill is a working mom who understands the challenge of juggling family, business and health. With the addition of treatments and classes for prenatal/postpartum women, infants and children, her practice reflects her life as a wife and mother of two young children. Outside of her practice she enjoys travelling, golf and trying all types of movement classes. She enjoys preparing tasty, healthy recipes for her active family.
