Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Kendra has over 10 years of fitness, Pilates, Sport Medicine, and athletic experience, she holds a degree in Kinesiology, and a Master's in Sport Management from the University of San Francisco. Kendra has held certifications as an athletic trainer (sports physical therapy), and maintains certifications through the Pilates Method Alliance, and the NSCA.
After discovering this amazing technique in California, Kendra trained extensively with Jill Dailey in order to provide Arizona women with the same fitness regime that has been popular in other metropolitan areas around the country for decades. Through Kendra's vast teaching experience, orthopedic conditioning knowledge and movement science studies, she continues to create and evolve the Karve technique. While many studios have begun teach their own interpretation of a barre workout, the Karve technique is uniquely effective due to the authentic construction of our facilities, and every teacher's adamant attention to detail.
"Since opening my first studio in Mesa at k Pilates, I have seen countless women completely change their physiques in a safe, supportive environment and a feeling of personal attention in each class. My own body has changed in ways I never thought possible, even after years of movement studies in other regimens. This has truly become my passion and gives me so much fulfillment to be able to make this technique available to so many people in the Phoenix area."
Our mission at Karve Studio is to provide attention to each individual's form, in limited semi-private class sizes to ensure rapid results.
