Christina sees Pilates as the bridge between fitness and living a fuller, more creative life. Born and raised in Manhattan, Christina has been a fashion stylist, a creative director for an arts publication and a bar owner in downtown Manhattan. No matter what she was doing, she never lost sight of her passion for movement and the human form. She turned her passion into a profession by completing the 600+ hour comprehensive Pilates program at Core Pilates NYC. Christina loves Pilates because of the mind and body connection, and the way it makes her stronger in her other cross training. Her belief is that with proper strengthening, posture, and breathing, one can gain the focus and stamina to be more productive in everyday life. She hopes to inspire others the way that her instructors have inspired her.
