Change happens through movement
and movement heals.

JOSEPH PILATES

Why I MOVE:

To restore my body. Despite numerous injuries; from disc herniations to labral tears and tendonitis, my body is still strong and highly mobile because of Pilates.

To invigorate my mind. Practicing a movement system reinforces a growth mindset which translates into other areas of my life. I know that success comes from consistent effort and resilience.

To elevate my spirit. Even when I’m not in the mood to move, honoring that commitment leaves me feeling motivated, energized, and empowered.

How I’ll help you MOVE:

I’ve taught numerous exercise modalities, but it’s Classical Pilates that continues to transform the way my clients move and feel in their bodies.

Classical Pilates is a comprehensive method of physical and mental conditioning designed to boost your vitality and longevity. We’ll focus on safe and effective training progressions to systematically build your strength, stability, flexibility, and stamina using the full spectrum of Mr. Pilates’ exercises and equipment. Your consistent practice will reinforce optimal postural and movement habits that will keep you feeling young, highly mobile, and confident.

Who are my clients:

I welcome clients of all ages, sizes, and fitness levels. I get excited about collaborating with people who value moving and feeling the best they possibly can versus the quest for purely aesthetic goals with a “no pain, no gain” mentality. Also, those who recognize that consistency, patience, resilience, and a sense of humor are keys to creating new movement habits that support lasting change.

Today I am pain-free and grateful to her for it. She is an exceptional teacher.

Kira is the reason I’m still dancing. Her understanding and expertise in Pilates has helped me to recover from a back injury I thought was impossible. Today I am pain-free and grateful to her for it. She is an exceptional teacher. Her detailed and structured style has the disciplined insight of a dancer yet the simplicity of a pedestrian.
