Hi, I'm Kirsten
Pilates | FRCms
I am a Master Pilates Instructor with 20 + years experience, a Kinstretch Level 1 instructor, a movement enthusiast, health educator, and explorer and lover of movement. I am deeply committed to helping you feel better.
For over 20 years I have been living my passion for helping others to live in better health. As a former gymnast, competitive sailor, and lover of extreme movement, I bring humour and authenticity, as well as a depth of knowledge to my contemporary approach to movement.
My teaching style focuses on biomechanically efficient exercises that provide maximum results through precise alignment and controlled movements. I have achieved extraordinary results with a wide range of clients including elite athletes, and individuals recovering from injury, surgery and neurological disorders. I works closely with health practitioners in my community to be able to refer my clients to the best people possible.
I am a PMA-NCPT® Certified Pilates Teacher having received my original certification from Pilates Downtown in Toronto, in 1997.
I have trained with Dr. Andrew Spina receiving my FRCms certification and consequently did the Kinstretch® Level 1 Instructor training. I trained in Ashtanga Yoga with David Swenson and have dabbled in workshops about The Roll Method, Nutritious Movement, and other therapeutic movement modalities with master teachers from around the world.
I hold an AOCA from the Ontario College of Art and Design.
