Kristen Concannon

Certified Pilates Instructor

Kristen was an avid dancer from childhood through her teens. Prior to teaching Pilates, she had a career in the financial industry, during which stayed healthy and fit through all forms of exercise. It wasn’t until she found Pilates that she discovered the passion she once experienced as a child through dance.

Diving head first into a full certification training program with Balanced Body in 2013, she found herself forever inspired and changed. You will find her classes creative and always adding some new moves to help challenge and change your body, mind and spirit.

She is very excited to be part of a practice that can bring such value to life. Out of the studio, Kristen loves traveling and teaching Pilates abroad to combine her two passions: sharing her love for Pilates and exploring new places. In addition to Pilates she enjoys yoga, barre, hiking, SUP, snowboarding and spin. Kristen also is passionate about eating healthy and incorporating organic foods into her diet, embodying healthy living in its entirety. She is super excited to share her passion at the Pilates Shoppe!

Cory Rojo

Certified Pilates Instructor

Cory grew up right here in South Orange County where fitness is a way of life. She decided to take on the fitness industry in 2010 after both of her kids entered school full time. Cory’s first stop in her fitness journey was obtaining her certification as an Indoor Cycling instructor. Shortly thereafter, Cory attended the Body Arts and Science Institute and in 2012 completed her Intermediate/Advanced Pilates Certification.

Joseph Pilates believed that his method of Pilates should be regarded as a “way of life and total path to health”, rather than merely just a series of exercises. Cory embodes this belief. She enjoys working with clients at all levels, from the young athlete to the mature client. Cory tailors her private sessions to the clients needs and likes to keep her group classes fresh and exciting! She feels that exercising should be an experience for the mind, body and soul.
