I would definitely recommend this training to a colleague. Currently I see so many people that are dealing with significant stress and some of these people are not even aware of it. I think just being able to add little bits of the stress relief to a class is a huge benefit to all clients."

"Ky is an expert trainer and she knows her stuff. Not only has her work allowed me to help clients, I’ve also been using the techniques I learned on myself to “reset” my own nervous system on a daily basis."

About Ky:

Hi, I'm Ky Russell, MA!


I've been teaching Pilates for over twenty years, and have been offering instructor training programs since 2008 as a Balanced Body Educator.


I created this program after personally dealing with a critical stress period that impacted my physical, mental, and emotional health. All at once I had a toddler, was finishing my graduate studies in Kinesiology, began a new teaching position at my university, and was caring for my terminally ill mother with dementia.


I started experiencing neck and joint pain, fatigue, burn out, brain fog, mood swings, and weight gain - even though nothing had changed in my exercise or nutritional routines. 


I realized that I couldn't address my health issues until I addressed my stress issues, and Pilates for Enhanced Stress Relief was born.


Using Pilates as a foundational bedrock for healing movement, PESR blends my work in Kinesiology, breathwork, mindfulness meditation, release work, vagal nerve stimulation, and relaxation. I've successfully helped myself and hundreds of students get stronger, calmer, and more energized with this unique system.


I'm now offering this as an advanced teacher training, sharing my protocols, exercises, and techniques to bring nervous system regulation, stress pain release, and restoration into your Pilates classes and sessions. So you can help your clients break free from chronic stress and being to feel better in body, mind, and spirit!
