Kaethe Birkner

Kaethe is a professional ballet dancer and is certified in Pilates through Balanced Body. She has been teaching ballet, Pilates and stretching group classes for ten years has been doing personal training for eight years. Kaethe’s love of ballet came first, when she was only two years old, and her love of Pilates followed when she was still a ballet student. Now, she uses both her ballet and Pilates knowledge in all her teaching. Having personally suffered a number of injuries and spent many hours in physical therapy over the years, Kaethe also incorporates her knowledge of physical therapy into her teaching style. Her specialties included a focus on proper technique, injury prevention, and alignment. Every class is built around the people in her class that day and their individual and group needs. She believes that individual corrections are key to making sure each student gets the most out of every workout and every exercise. In addition, when ok with the student, she uses hands-on corrections to help them learn how to engage not only the big muscles of their bodies but also the little, harder to activate muscles. Kaethe’s teaching goals are to provide her students with a fun class and full-body workouts that focus on proper technique, alignment, and injury prevention.
