Kristine Bellinger

Certified Pilates Teacher

Healing is a journey and even our most painful experiences have something to teach us.

Kristine’s own experience with injury and chronic pain ultimately led her on a path to help heal and inspire others.

Not just your body, but your entire experience is also unique. I believe that true, lasting healing can only come from an integrative, individualized, and personalized approach. I help clients find the path that is right for them and it is often one that extends beyond the physical body. Alignment, balance, and injury prevention come from much more than exercise. I support the client in finding the right tools that will take them to the next level of health and empower their whole being – mind, body, and spirit.” -Kristine
