Waiheke Pilates Centre

From a lucky strike, Kristin magically landed on Waiheke Island while traveling the globe. She nestled in making it home and eventually started a family. Her love of Pilates started while living in Boulder, Colorado. Her education includes Stott Pilates, Peak Pilates and Yoga Medicine. Kristin loves introducing this movement style to beginners as well as challenging individuals who are ready to learn more advanced exercises. Her classes are dynamic, empowering, engaging, educational and focus on breathing, alignment and pelvic stability. She specializes in movement education for individuals needing safe pelvic floor exercises and pre/postnatal women. She believes strength is equally as important as flexibility and having a balance between the two is part of the equation for achieving optimal health. Kristin is Owner of Waiheke Pilates Centre in Ostend. The Waiheke Pilates Centre has a united team of uniquely talented instructors who provide small group mat & reformer classes, private groups, one-on-one, rehabilitation, pre/postnatal, workshops and corporate wellness packages.

We look forward to supporting you in your wellness journey. Visit our website to learn more: https://www.waihekepilatescentre.co.nz/
