Kim Kirsch has been a Guest at TerraLuna since June, 2022 and we'd like to get to know her a bit better.
What brought you to Pilates and how long you've been practicing?
I began my Pilates journey in June 2022 when the studio first opened up. One of my co-workers put a brochure in my mailbox at work about the studio. I was looking for an exercise program that fit my needs so I decided to give it a try. I quickly fell in love with Pilates, especially the welcoming and encouraging atmosphere of the studio.
Do you have a goal you'd like to share that Pilates helped you/is helping you obtain?
My goal is to increase my overall strength and flexibility.
What class(es) have you/do you take? Do you have a favorite class?
I typically attend Reformer classes but I also enjoy the jump class.
What is an activity which was difficult for you in the beginning but is now easier?
Planks were difficult for me at first. I still need to work on my form but they are getting easier.
Tell us about props! Favorite and least favorite.
I have a love hate relationship with the ring.
If you had a "Signature Activity" what would it be?
I love doing Peter Pans! It took me several classes to figure out how to do them correctly.
How do you define "wellness"?
I define wellness as feeling good physically, socially and emotionally. I think to be truly well you need to work on all three aspects.
Would you share a little-known fact about yourself?
I am a first generation college graduate which has fostered my love of helping others achieve their educational goals.
Finally, what is one food/drink you cannot live without?
I love any type of seafood, especially scallops.
Thank you Kim, for sharing a bit about yourself and your Pilates journey!
