Why do you love Pilates?

With Pilates, I help give the ultimate gift, HEALTH!

Why did you start?

As a child dancer, my teachers at Martha Graham and ballet made it a requirement. From childhood on, I never stopped!


Originally a student of Joe Pilates himself, Kristin has taught in New York City and internationally for 30+ years. She was the owner of La Playa Pilates for over 16 years. Her certifications include Classical Pilates, Synergy Systems, BASI ™️ Pilates, and a 3 year course at The Sports Institute for Athletic Trauma. Having multiple certifications, I teach to the person in front of me and what their mind/body needs.
