Kristen Rizzuto

Senior Instructor (virtual only), Teacher Trainer

Fave muscle: “Diaphragm – it keeps you breathing, looks like a gym class parachute, contains a silent letter, gives your heart a never-ending piggy back ride, plays chase with the pelvic floor, and when it’s feelin’ sassy, it gives you hiccups!”

The human body has always fascinated Kristen, who grew up dancing in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was this fascination & love of movement that led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she took courses in Anatomy, Kinesiotherapy, and Biomechanics. After moving to New York, Kristen was exposed to the superb awesomeness of Pilates as a means to work through injury, recondition the body, and improve overall posture & fitness.¬†Kristen obtained her Pilates Mat & Apparatus Certifications from the Kane School of Core Integration and aims to provide movement experiences for clients that both challenge and empower. When Kristen isn’t dancing or Pilatesing, you’ll probably find her crouched over a bag of Haribo gummy bears, casually humming the score from Cats the Musical… for which she harbors a life-long obsession.
