Hi, I’m Kirsten, the founder of Explore Movement!

I’m a Pilates & GYROTONIC® instructor with over 19 years of experience helping people improve strength, reduce pain, and increase flexibility. I established the Explore Movement collective in 2023 to build community and bring Pilates to more people. Each teacher brings their unique perspective and expertise.

Before I knew it, the lower back pain had vanished, my posture had improved dramatically, and I had lost weight!

Most importantly, I learned a great deal about how the body works. I’ve been provided with lessons and practices that I can take with me wherever I am in life.

Before Pilates, I felt like I was playing "whack-a-mole" with pain: fix one spot, then another would feel bad.

Since taking weekly sessions, I feel less pain and more mobile and strong. I have become more aware of my movement habits that lead to pain and can easily move out of them without causing other problems. I highly recommend!

My core is noticeably stronger and my posture is much better too!

After having my 2nd child, my core muscles were especially weak and my whole body felt off. I finally feel like my hips, shoulders, and legs are working together on the same team. I feel  stronger and taller!
