Christl MARCONTELL

A lifelong modern dancer and a former aerial dancer with the Robert Davidson Dance Company, Kinesia founder, Christl discovered Pilates as a way to regain core strength for aerial dance after pregnancy. She also learned she could control the pain from permanent injuries from a car accident in her teens.

 

Christl trained at Pilates Seattle International with Lauren Stephan, Dorothee Vandewalle, and Lori Coleman-Brown and was certified by Romana Kryzanowska in 1999. She has been teaching full-time since then.

Thanks to Pilates, Christl found a fascinating career that she loves and allowed her to become a business owner.

 

She has passed the 50 years-old mile-marker and is grateful for this powerful tool that fights the effects of aging.

Christl loves adapting and refining the work to the individual.

 

"I love seeing Pilates change people’s bodies and how it helps people control the effects of aging so they can move with ease and balance through all their life."

Gay MARCONTELL

Gay's journey to Pilates started when her daughter, Christl needed practice clients during her own training. She discovered an interesting and varied practice that she knew she could use to explore her own body without becoming bored. This led to Gay training at Seattle Pilates International with Romana Kryzanowska, her daughter Sari, and Dorothee VandeWalle.

As a teacher, Gay's practice always includes not only the Pilates forms but elements of body awareness and mindfulness. This is a full-body approach to teaching that Gay feels is essential to living a long and rich life.

 

Gay is also a flatwater kayak enthusiast:

"Paddling is a terrific therapy for my upper body and the backwaters that I enjoy are good for my soul."
