Senior Instructor; Pilates



Kalila Kingsford Smith was introduced to Pilates in 2014 in order to address lower back pain and increase core strength as a means of supporting her local dance career as an independent choreographer. She completed the Drexel Pilates Training Program under the direction of Jennifer Morley in 2018. She works to create an encouraging learning environment where clients feel seen and supported. She offers anatomically informed feedback to help clients access an integrated and supported core. She builds classes around clients’ specific health and fitness goals, so they feel great in their bodies after every session. Kalila utilizes her dance background by moving clients with rhythm and flow.
