About

Kirk Smith

Kirk Smith, second generation Pilates teacher: bridging theory and practice, mind and body.

Every day in my studio, I see that everyone can benefit from the original method developed by Mr. Pilates himself. I have remained faithful to the original work in my own daily practice and in my teaching.

I started Pilates in the late 1990’s in New York under Joseph Pilates’ protégé Romana Kryzanowska.  I also studied with Pilates Elders Mary Bowen in 2000-2001 and later with Jay Grimes. My commitment to authentic Pilates is long standing as is my dedication to sharing the classical repertoire both with clients and teachers. I started mentoring teachers in the US in 2007, which I continued to do until I moved to the UK in 2012. I currently offer workshops for teachers and clients, and I have launched my own teacher training programme.

Classical Pilates will teach you how to take control of your own body by optimizing the way you move. It will show you what you can do. Everyone needs Pilates.

In 2004, I completed the Muscle Activation Techniques® internship and became a certified MAT Specialist.
