FITNESS/ AERIAL/ DANCE INSTRUCTOR & OWNER
FT2A5723.jpg

Hello Darlings!

My name is Jennifer Ramey and my aerial journey started in 2018 at Arya Fitness. For me it was love at first class! I fell in love with everything about the aerial arts and fitness: Lyra, pole, hammock you name it.  I have a fitness background and my favorite workout is Dance Fitness and Zumba! Just a little bit about myself- I have a Bachelor's degree in Health Education and a Masters Degree in Physical Education and am certified in both Health and Physical Education.  I have a certification to teach Aerial Hammock through Luna Aerial Arts, have a CirqFit Lyra Certification, Liquid Motion 1.0 certification as of 2023, and am an AFAA certified Group Fitness Instructor.  For over 13 years I’ve worked full time as an Office Manager and taught Physical Education for 3 years.  I’m a single mom, a dog and cat mom, live in New Milford and the studio is a lifestyle for me. 

When you truly love something, love and passion never go away.  The aerial arts and fitness run through my veins as it does for many who have tried this fitness art. Arya Fitness was forced to close down in the beginning of 2021 and we couldn’t let something so important and special to us disappear, we had lost enough in 2020.  We need each other more than ever and it’s so important that we have a safe and happy place to come together and create fitness dreams.  We deserve a place where friendships, special bonds, encouragement, self-esteem building, embracing our feminine/ masculine sensuality and finding our inner voices and strength can be discovered.  I feel honored and privileged to be able to share  J. Rouge Fitness Arts and Wellness Studio with everyone. 

I can’t wait to see familiar faces and to meet new ones as well. Looking forward to creating a beautiful space where we can all express ourselves openly and creatively.  

Random facts about Jennifer:  I like odd foods such as anchovies, my favorite treat is praline pecans, I was born and raised in California till freshman year of high school, even though I’m fairly tall I love to wear high heels, I love Disney World and Universal Studios, enjoy nature and tropical beaches, favorite quote:

Michaela started her aerial journey on August 1st, 2016 at Hudson Valley Circus Arts. After her first split fabrics class she was absolutely hooked.  While split fabric remained her first love she has also taken up lyra/ aerial hoop, hula hoop, aerial hammock and dabbles with pole arts.  She received her Nimble Arts aerial fabric teaching certificate in February 2020, and her Cirqfit Lyra certification in April 2021.  Michaela is not only fabulous in the air, she has collaborated with Jana since 2022 to put on our fabulous annual Showcase and has performed at various events representing J.

HEATHER

YOGA  / AERIAL YOGA / AERIAL HAMMOCK

My name is Heather. I am a 500 hr RYT Certified Yoga Alliance instructor, Luna Aerial Yoga Certified Instructor, Advanced Aerial Hammock Tricks certification through OM Factory and a Cirqfit Lyra Certified instructor. I have practiced yoga for over 20 years and I have been teaching yoga since 2016. I work with students on developing a practice that can grow in time, by starting with a strong foundation in basics.  I work one-on-one with clients  to develop confidence and creativity in their practice.  Through a connection to the breath, students will also cultivate a movement meditation practice. Together we will overcome any limitations of the body by making a unique flow that is perfect for wherever you are today! 

 

Aerial Yoga is a ton of fun and it will literally take you to new heights! Don't worry if you are brand new! I primarily work with students on developing a practice that can grow in time, by starting with a strong foundation in basics. I work one-on-one with students to cultivate confidence and creativity in their practice.  Through developing strength in the arms and core, aerial yoga allows you to fly! Classes will start with a warm up, followed by conditioning, a flow, and then at least one trick. We will end with a cool down and grounding!

ERICA

PILATES

Hi, I’m Erica and I have been practicing Pilates for about 20 years and teaching for 15. I fell in love with Pilates when I realized how good and energized I felt after and not exhausted and strained like I had felt in the past with exercise. What I also love is, it is challenging and brings an awareness and sense of connection to your body using breath and specific cues while improving all aspect of fitness like strength, stability and coordination. It covers it all!


My other loves are my husband, my dog and a good meal! I’m a huge foodie!!


Hope to see you on the mat!!

SAE

AERIAL SILKS & FITNESS

Hi, I’m Sae! My aerial journey started in 2016 with pole and lyra but I quickly found my passion for the aerial silks. The aspect of silks that attracts me the most is that it combines the adrenaline of heights with the complexity of knot theory. I hope to empower students to explore their own style and to feel confident experimenting with their practice.

 

My other hobbies include travel, rock climbing, web design, coding, knitting/crochet, horticulture, and discovering new food joints.

 

*Feel free to drop me suggestions on good gluten-free eats!

SHERI

AERIAL HAMMOCK/ AERIAL HOOP 

Sheri grew up cheering all the way through college. Her love for being in the air and acrobatics quickly turned into a passion for the aerial arts. 2017 marked Sheri's beginning with taking both Hammock and Lyra classes. She eventually took the love she had for the apparatus and shared it with others when she became an instructor in 2019. When J. Rouge opened, she found a new home and even expanded her passions to include dancing. By combining the two, she loves creating aerial routines that are flowy and make everyone feel confident in their skills. Sheri took her Aerial Yoga Teacher Certification course in 2024 and her Cirque Fit Lyra Certification April 2024.
