Chris Calvert, PMA®-CPT
Chris has a passion for life and a passion for Pilates. She completed the 600-hour comprehensive training program through Power Pilates NYC.
After practicing the Pilates Method for years, Chris realized that that passion building within her for movement in an effort to stay fit, strong and flexible as the body was aging also was leading her to the world of sharing that passion with others.
Chris continues to challenge herself and hence her clients with a deeper working knowledge and understanding of classical Pilates. She studies weekly with Raleigh area teachers Patty Geiger and Stacie Dombrowski. She has attended workshops with well respected teachers and masters Kathi Ross-Nash, Bob Liekens, Benjamin Degenhardt, Karen Frischmann, Andrea Maida, Dana Santi, Aubrey Johnson, and Chantill Lopez. While traveling, Chris has made opportunities to study with other great teachers, such as Dena Drotar (Vintage Pilates, LA) and Gaia Faggiani (Gaia Pilates Roma).
Chris graduated with an A.B. from Meredith College in Raleigh NC with concentrations in art and business. Chris lived and worked in the Maryland and Northern Virginia area for 25 years, and finished her Washington career working for one of the justices at the Supreme Court of the United States. She moved back to Raleigh in 2014 with her husband John. Together, they restored, renovated and added onto their 1920s Craftsman bungalow in Historic Oakwood in Raleigh. The addition to the house includes the in-home studio, Pilates on Pace. In addition to teaching the Pilates Method, Chris enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking and traveling.
