Kristen is the embodiment of a true educator. She is passionate, extremely knowledgeable, and inspiring to all of her students. I have gotten into deep conversation with her on multiple occasions about anatomy, pedagogy, and integration of Pilates into other fitness modalities. She is able to know what imbalances are occurring in the bodies of her clients by visual observation and helpful touch. She uses her creativity to problem solve - staying within the Pilates methodology - but adjusting and finessing the exercises so all are able to get what they need from the practice. This studio is fortunate to have such a stellar instructor, and so is the city of Jacksonville.
