Kristin Salmans

Instructor

Kristin has lived in Lawrence since 2013 and has been at Aligned since 2015. Prior to that, she lived in various places around Alabama, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, Nebraska and Germany as an Air Force spouse. Kristin began practicing and teaching Pilates matwork shortly after the oldest of her three children was born. In 2016, Kristin completed the 520 hour Comprehensive Instructor Training program through Balanced Body Education and began teaching private clients and small groups, in addition to mat and barre classes, at Aligned. She also holds certifications through AFAA, Balanced Body Barre, TRX and several indoor cycling certifications. 

Kristin holds a BS in Nursing from Baylor University as well as a Masters in Health Systems Administration from Georgetown University. This background and experience are a perfect complement to the teaching and practice of Pilates. She truly loves working with clients of all ages and abilities. The greatest reward to her is seeing the amazing transformations of her clients, not only physically, but in mind-body balance and confidence.
