Kristi Hameedi was certified by the United States Pilates Association®, LLC under second-generation teacher Brett Howard. She has expanded her Pilates repertoire with Alycea Ungaro as part of her Pilates Synthesis program with NY Real Pilates. She enriched her training with other notable teachers: David Freeman, Shari Berkowitz, Peter Fiasca, Mari Winsor, Mejo Wiggin, Kathy Corey, and Blossom Crawford with her insight into Kathy Grant’s work. She also had the good fortune to be taught by Pilates Elder Lolita San Miguel.
Kristi’s start was in engineering; she holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as her MBA. She takes pleasure in applying her understanding of structure and mechanics to the human body, as well as to the function of our studio equipment.
Kristi is passionate about movement, the health benefits of it and the joy that manifests from it. And, she believes we are all built for it. Kristi has been a trainer since 2005, and this is her eighth year as a U.S.P.A.® Pilates instructor.
She is the owner of Pilates Sestina in Traverse City, Michigan.
