Team | Kristen Matthews
Kristen Matthews discovered Pilates while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and was immediately drawn to it and very quickly felt relief from her own back injuries. In 2003, she earned her teaching certification from renowned Power Pilates in NYC where she studied under celebrated co-director Bob Liekens and co-owner Susan Moran-Perich. In 2007 Kristen moved to California where you can find her teaching in Santa Monica at UpRise Classical Pilates as well as Equinox. Kristen believes in keeping her students moving, while maintaining proper form to maximize the benefits from each session. Kristen has studied anatomy with Irene Dowd, Thai massage in Thailand, and completed a Yoga Alliance 200-hour certification with Yogaposer in the spring of 2010. However, the biggest accomplishment so far for Kristen is becoming part of the Equinox teacher training program. For Kristen's latest teaching schedule visit www.kristen4pilates.com.
