Kerri's love of Pilates began over 14 years ago when she was introduced to the method as a supplement to her dance training. Years later a life of professional dancing and waiting tables led to chronic knee pain, and Kerri turned to Pilates for rehabilitation. She found not only a mindful and sustainable method of conditioning the physique, but a passion for empowering others with this body wisdom and understanding. While a stickler for proper alignment, Kerri believes that taking care of yourself should be fun! She delights in helping her clients achieve their health and wellness goals, so they can move through life with ease and grace.
Kerri is Pilates certified through Balanced Body University and the Ellie Herman Method. As passionate about learning as she is about teaching, Kerri is continuously seeking out continuing education in new movement modalities. She is also a Core Align instructor, a certified Melt Method Hand and Foot instructor, has trained in Preggo Pilates (pre- and post-natal), studied rehabilitation work with Lizz Roman as well as Foot and Gait Therapy under the mentorship of master trainer Nancy Myers, and most recently became a Balance Body Barre instructor.
Kerri holds a BFA in Dance Choreography from the University of Colorado, Boulder. When not in the Pilates studio you can find her dancing, hiking, climbing, sailing or camping.
