Kristen Kohan (Certified)
Kristen has always had a passion for movement and the body, first expressed as a dancer and now as Pilates instructor. Her first experience with Pilates was while attending a collage summer program at the Alvin Ailey School of Dance in New York City. After she received her BA in Dance and Sociology from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, she moved back to New York to pursue dance. She began to practice and learn more about Pilates and fell in love with how it made her feel. She completed an initial mat certification with Teri Steele at Dance New Amsterdam and began teaching at various locations around the city. Excited and inspired by what she learned, Kristen went on to complete a comprehensive Pilates certification at the Kane School of Core Integration under Kelly Kane and the various instructors at the school. She has worked with a wide variety of clients, privately and in class settings, and has enjoyed continuing her education through the various workshops at the Kane School including Pilates during pregnancy, for clients with osteoporosis and scoliosis, and for runners, golfers and racquet sports players, to name a few.
Kristen moved to Indianapolis in 2013 with her husband and 3 year old son Jackson while pregnant with twins Nicholas and Noah. She is very excited to be teaching in Indy and to have found such a wonderful studio to call home and to continue the lifelong journey of growing as an instructor.
