Kristen Rizzuto, Kane School Teacher Trainer will review the core principles of the Kane School philosophy, and give an overview of the Comprehensive Pilates Mat and Basic Training Phase I/II courses. If you have ever considered getting certified in Pilates, this is a great opportunity to learn more about this approach!

The complete Kane School curriculum includes the following elements, in sequenced order (courses are held at Kinected, at Gibney and off site; private training is also an option):

Step 2: Comprehensive Mat
Step 3: Equipment Training: Basic Training Phase I & II, including independent study requirements, practical & written exams


Developed by Kelly Kane, the Kane School certification is a rigorous training program combining the classic principles of Pilates with a modern, clinical perspective on the human body. Known world-wide for its anatomy-based approach, the Kane School program goes beyond choreography to explain why exercises work. Students not only learn classic Pilates repertoire, but also delve deeply into biomechanics, postural imbalances and common injuries. Learn how to listen with your hands. Become a Kane School graduate and join an enriching network of forward-thinking teachers that spans across the country and internationally.


The human body has always fascinated Kristen, who grew up dancing in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was this fascination & love of movement that led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she took courses in Anatomy, Kinesiotherapy, and Biomechanics. After moving to New York, Kristen was exposed to the superb awesomeness of Pilates as a means to work through injury, recondition the body, and improve overall posture & fitness. Kristen obtained her Pilates Mat & Apparatus Certifications from the Kane School of Core Integration and aims to provide movement experiences for clients that both challenge and empower.
