Kevyn began practicing, and fell in love with Pilates 15 years ago. After teaching internationally for just over 10 years, she is now recognized as an expert in the Pilates world. She currently resides in Brooklyn and has become one of the most sought after teachers in Manhattan. She began Pilates at age 17 after experiencing a knee injury as a long distance runner. The practice not only healed her knee injury but truly became an essential part of her life.
Kevyn received her Pilates Certification and Master’s Certification at The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. While studying at The Pilates Center, she obtained her degree in Kinesiology at The University of Colorado at Boulder. Her degree in Kinesiology allows her to back the artistry of her teaching scientifically. Her teaching truly represents both a knowledge of, and fascination for movement and physiology.
Her approach is subtle in that she prefers to allow the student to realize what they already know. She feels thankful and extremely honored to be a part of their journey towards optimal health. She has worked with clients of all ages and levels of fitness and teaches fluently in French and Spanish. Her enthusiasm for sharing Pilates with others is genuine…and contagious.
