KristenKristen is a certified Pilates instructor in Hoboken and New York City. Her interest in movement education stems from her own experience as an athlete, dancer, and yoga practitioner. Initially interested in the Pilates method as a tool for her own injury recovery, Kristen was inspired by the changes she saw and was eager to share the strengthening and healing capabilities of Pilates with others.

Kristen’s certification includes 500+ hours of comprehensive training at Ellie Herman Studios in Brooklyn, NY, under the direction of Ellie Herman herself. Kristen also has undergone comprehensive training through Polestar’s intensive program, deepening her interest in anatomy, biomechanics and understanding of the method. She continues her education with Master Teachers throughout NYC. Her previous work, in addition to Pilates, consists of twelve years of teaching at the elementary school level in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Kristen holds Kappa Delta Pi Honors from Eastern Connecticut State University in Psychology and Elementary Education.

As an instructor, Kristen works to guide, inspire and challenge others through functional movement and mind-body connection. She enjoys witnessing the strength, balance, and overall sense of well-being that Pilates brings to the body and has been doing so at Kure Pilates since opening our storefront doors in 2014.
