Kim Reis

Kim began her physical training at the age of six with her first gymnastics class and has been studying movement ever since. This led to a BFA from the University of Utah, and a professional dance career in New York, most notably as a member of the Mark Morris Dance Group. She earned her Pilates certification in the Classical style from Master Instructor Romana Kryzanowska, a direct protégé of Joseph Pilates. Also certified through Power Pilates, she studied extensively with Bob Liekens and regularly assists Jennifer Kries with teacher-training seminars. Kim is currently featured in Jennifer’s new DVD series entitled Hot Body/Cool Mind as well as the Master Trainer Series.

One of the first to bring Pilates to the mainstream, students filled her classes at Equinox Health Club, New York University, and the Time/Life Company, among others. She has trained members of the San Francisco Ballet as well as players on the Portland Trailblazers. Areas of study include Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Biomechanics with Irene Dowd and Jean-Claude West. She also loves practicing yoga, flying on the trapeze, and her newest adventure of being a mom. Kim’s philosophy is to empower her students to create change, and to always believe in the possibility of a positive outcome.
