TEACHER KERSTIN STUART (Pilates, Pilates Mat, Aryuvedic Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Contemporary Dance)
Born in The Netherlands, owner Kerstin Stuart came to Pilates to save her knees while training as a dancer and, 18 years later, is still dancing.

TEACHER DENISE DIAQUE (Pilates, Yoga)
Denise grew up in Guadaljara, Mexico and is both an instructor at the studio and part of the management team. She has studied Pilates with Gabriella Farias, Yoga and Shadow Yoga. Movement has taught her a lot about herself, life and how it is all a constant change. Breath has helped her come back to the present, be alert and to have patience. Her focus is to identify where the strength is coming from, how to move and connect by choice and awareness, not just automated patterns. Join her to lengthen, strengthen and feel good!
