Christi's journey in the field of movement began at the age of six. Her passion for movement as an expressive art form and grounding practice of self-discovery led her to become a yoga, Pilates and GYROTONIC® instructor. Christi’s academic career in Spanish literature, philosophy and conflict resolution prepared her for a life in politics. She completed her undergraduate education with a BA in philosophy and Spanish literature at the University of Miami in Florida and studied International Peace Studies at the United Nations mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica. Finding her vocation in service through movement, Christi decided in 2005 to commit whole-heartedly to the field of movement science. Christi is a bilingual educator for Polestar Education and is the director of Polestar Latin America as well as an education coordinator for Polestar Pilates International based in Miami, FL. Christi oversees developing university relationships with Polestar HQ and has presented the Polestar curriculum at both national and international universities including, University of Miami, FL, New York University, Universidad Catolica in Montevideo, UY, Universidad Catolica and Universidad de Valparaiso in Chile. She was also the winner of the Pilates Anytime Next Instructor in 2013. Most recently, Christi opened the first Polestar Pilates Studio Franchise in Miami, FL.
