Christina has been teaching Pilates throughout New York City since 2008, earning her certification in mat and apparatus through the Kane School of Core Integration. Her initial introduction to the Pilates method came over ten years ago while dealing with a chronic back injury. A classically trained dancer, Pilates helped Christina gain a further appreciation for the body and a greater understanding of anatomy and biomechanics while she healed her injury. Since completing her initial certification, Christina has continued her education with many workshops, including pre-natal and post partum Pilates with Debra Goodman, M.S.P.T., and Gyrotonic with Chantal Deeble of Kinespirit. Her passion for working with the prenatal population has also inspired her to become a birth doula, receiving her training with Debra Pascali-Bonaro. She has been thrilled to work with a variety of clients in both fitness and clinical settings and relishes being able to help people understand their bodies and achieve their goals, whatever they may be.
