Having always been attracted to a healthy and active lifestyle, it was a perfect fit for Kalli to decide to study and major in Kinesiology (the study of human movement). Kalli’s first exposure to Pilates was while taking ballet at the University of Colorado. Instantly intrigued by the differences of the concepts taught in the whole body experience, from “traditional” fitness regimens, she was hooked. After receiving her degree in Kinesiology, she went on to earn her Pilates teacher certification in 1995 at The Pilates Center in Boulder, a studio committed to the original classical method of Joseph Pilates teachings. With her knowledge in the study of human movement and over 20 years of teaching and continuing education experience, she finds Pilates to be a total mind/body therapy achieved through creative expression and application of the exercises. Kalli is happy to be teaching Pilates in Telluride where she grew up from the age of 10.
