Kelly Piersant

Certified Pilates Instructor
Kelly Piersant was raised in the U.K. and Australia, but now calls the U.S. home. A self-described free spirit, she grew up riding horses and spending all her free time outdoors in nature. Kelly spent the early years of her career in the beauty industry, working as a professional make-up artist, where her creativity and passion for making people look and feel their best was perfectly suited. In 2013 Kelly was introduced to Pilates, and immediately began seeing changes in her body and mind, including postural corrections, muscle lengthening and flexibility. An incredible increase in body awareness and mental and physical strength ensued. Kelly lives a holistic life and feels that regular mindful exercise, in addition to good nutrition play an important role in how we feel physically and physiologically. Kelly is a graduate of Body Arts and Science International, where she had the good fortunate to train closely with master instructor Rael Isacowitz. She is excited to continue this journey, and looks forward to using Pilates to help others achieve their own personal goals.
