Kitty James has lived in Coronado since 2003. She is originally from NYC where she

was raised and danced professional classical ballet for 15 years. She studied with

The Royal Academy of dance (RAD) and School of American Ballet (SAB). She also

had the opportunity to dance at Pacific Northwest Ballet and Competed in the Prix

de Lausanne in Switzerland.

Kitty first discovered Pilates while recovering from a dance injury at age 14 at The

School of American Ballet. She had multiple stress fractures on her Lumbar spine

and needed a rehab therapy method that would support her classical dance

movements and train her entire body safely.

Kitty retired from dance and had to further heal her body of chronic injuries she had

acquired and used the Pilates method to get her body back online. She moved to San

Diego in 2001 when her husband was perusing his career in the Navy.

After the birth of her 3rd child she decided to undergo her complete Stott Pilates

training and pursue her desire to teach and help others through Pilates. She had a

severe abdominal diastasis and needed to heal herself again.

This has given Kitty the opportunity to train clients for the past 4 years from the

rehabilitation level to a high performance level. She enjoys working with a variety

of clients and is excited to work at Bamboo Pilates and be so close to home!

Class description: This all-levels class that combines equipment based pilates with The MELT® Method techniques. The MELT Method brings your body back to a more ideal state by directly enhancing body awareness, rehydrating connective tissue, and quieting the nervous system. We will use specialized soft rollers and small MELT Hand and Foot Treatment Balls for the first 15-20 minutes of the session to ease chronic neck and low back strain, improve alignment, and enhance athletic performance. The remainder of the session will be spent on the reformers, cadillacs and stability chairs. This in a 60 minute session. *You must be able to get up and down from the floor on your own.
