Kristi was first introduced to Pilates as a teenager and instantly knew it was something she wanted to pursue. She began teaching in 2003 and has literally worked in studios all across the country since. Trained in the STOTT Pilates method with a heavy emphasis on rehab, she loves helping people use movement to get out of pain and enjoy life again. In addition to her pilates training, she has earned some specialty trainings through STOTT. Kristi is ZEN*GA certified, a method taking the best of pilates and yoga and the newest findings in fascial fitness to create a workout to improve strength, enhance elasticity and create a more youthful, resilient and fluid body. Kristi is also Total Barre certified, a fun, heart-pumping work-everything workout incorporating Pilates, dance, cardio and strength-training. Kristi is also a level 1 Neurokinetic Therpist. Kristi has always been a quiet observer with a keen sense of intuition and she uses those skills to the benefit of each of her clients. She is careful to observe movement patterns of each of her clients to see how they can best be served to find better balance and harmony within their body. She has successfully worked with a wide variety of clients representing many symptoms/scenarios to include: prenatal/postnatal, SI instability, plantar fasciitis, post-surgery recovery and more. In 2011, Kristi fulfilled another lifelong desire and became a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Using food as medicine, she has found another way to support her clients to become pain free, find greater energy and just feel good again. She is also a RESTART® certified instructor, offering a 5-week group program to clean sugar out of the body and allow the body time to heal and rebalance. Kristi is available in the studio on Wednesday and Friday mornings.
"There are a lot of people I could go to for Pilates, but Marilyn [at Pilates On Hudson] is the one I trust with my issues" -Liz M., Club Fit PT
"I first went to Marilyn [at Pilates on Hudson] for help in recovering from an injury - my orthopedist suggested that Pilates would be a good follow-up to physical therapy. That was 4 years ago and despite having recovered FULLY, I have become more fit and can honestly say I am in the best shape I have ever been in." Anne C. "My brain is SO involved in this - Marilyn's training is both CEREBRAL and VISCERAL" - A. King
