Krystal Maroon, Balanced Body Certified Pilates Instructor

Krystal is a mom of three – a 10 year old, a 7 year old, and a 4 year old!  Krystal discovered a passion for Pilates after healing from a hysterectomy and looking to rebuild core strength.  She loves the mind/body component of Pilates, and the precise and controlled way it builds strength, tones deep muscles, and develops good posture and coordination.

Krystal was a patient at RVA Holistic PT before she became a Pilates instructor.  Through physical therapy Krystal was able to live a pain free post-op life, learned invaluable things specific to her body, and preventative strategies that allowed her to grow her personal Pilates practice, and eventually pursue it as a career.  It is because of this personal experience that Krystal began to dream about one day teaching Pilates in a physical therapy environment.

Krystal is passionate about helping people discover their resilience through Pilates.  She customizes sessions specific to your body and your individual goals.  She loves creating a welcoming, non-judgmental, and relaxing environment for clients to achieve balanced muscle development and optimal alignment for long term health.  She designs every session with the goal that you will walk out feeling happier, stronger, more aligned, connected to your body, and less stressed. 

When she is not doing Pilates or chasing and carpooling her children, Krystal enjoys being outdoors (especially around any form of water), hiking, biking, writing, reading fiction, taking hot baths, and having deep soul conversations with her husband or a good friend.

Krystal loves introducing people to the Pilates reformer – there is simply no workout like it!  What you learn from reformer Pilates will help you succeed in all other forms of exercise.  Krystal is qualified to work with anyone from introductory beginner level to super advanced level Pilates on the reformer.  She is available to teach private reformer Pilates sessions for women or men on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
