Benefits for kids practicing Pilates:

Because Pilates is a mind and body discipline, it can guide kids to a stronger body, and a more relaxed state of mind. Working to strengthen their bodies can increase children’s self-esteem, stamina, abdominal strength, good posture/alignment and sleep. That, combined with the focused Breathing techniques essential to the exercises, can help kids attain a much more serene and less stressful outlook. The theme for this week is boxing/Pilates class.

Course Instructor

Kaitlin Cotarelo

I started my journey with movement at a very ripe age of 3 years old. Dancing was my life and was lucky enough to Train with American Ballet Theater and Joffrey ballet for 7 years growing up. I competed and ranked nationally/internationally. All the rigorous moves that dance required of me left my body in pain. Dance led me to the Pilates method of mindful movement. This method pushed me to take control of my body and not be at its mercy. Pilates taught me that with patience and perseverance anything is possible! I have been teaching for 6+ years and was certified through Equinox Teacher Training Institute. Along with teaching clients both on the mat and apparatus I am also a Teacher Trainer which allows me to teach/certify future instructors! I also have had the pleasure of training our Nextjump New York team for 4+years!
