I founded Insightful Alignment Pilates in Las Vegas in 2013. While Las Vegas is home to many Pilates studios, only a few teachers here teach the "Classical" work. By this, I mean the version of Pilates that is as true as possible to the original method created by Joseph Pilates a century ago. Many variations on Joseph Pilates' teachings exist today, but I believe that the healing potential of the Classical Pilates method is unmatched.

From professional harpist to Pilates instructor, my journey with Pilates was unexpected, yet life-changing.
Now, I share the transformative and empowering power of Classical Pilates with my clients.

I'm Kristie, Your Classical Pilates Guide

hi, and welcome!

Whether you're seeking relief from chronic pain or simply a life free from everyday aches and pains, Classical Pilates can be a transformative tool in your life, as it was in mine.

Together, we can work to help you discover strength, lightness, and ease in your life.

Uncovering the Path to Wellness

Now, with the knowledge and confidence I gained, I pass these invaluable lessons on to my clients, helping them enhance their movement, balance, and body-mind connection.

This experience equipped me with profound insights into achieving mind-body control:
  • mastering graceful, precise movements;
  • honing a keen sense of bodily awareness in space; and
  • understanding how each body part functions independently and harmoniously.

The immediate and transformative benefits I received from Pilates—much-needed pain reduction and a newfound sense of well-being—inspired me to take on a rigorous 950-hour training program at InsideOut Body Therapies, licensed through The Pilates Center. Known as the “Harvard” of Classical Pilates training, this program extended beyond academic understanding and guided me to embody the healing potential of Pilates.

My Classical Pilates Credentials

My connection to Pilates is deeply personal. Like many of my clients, I've experienced the debilitating effects of severe chronic pain. Despite trying yoga, massage therapy, acupuncture, biofeedback, and prescription medications, it was Pilates that brought me back to a fulfilling life and onto a healing path.

My "Return to Life" through Pilates:
Discovering Freedom from Chronic Pain

I was pretty terrible at Pilates when I first started. I tell my clients that if there is a mistake to be made, I 100% have done it--probably several times!


I like taking personality tests. I'm an INTJ, an Enneagram type 1 wing 9, and a 2/4 Projector in Human Design.


I'm also a professional harpist, performing for local and destination weddings. I actually have a doctorate in harp performance--but you don't need to call me Dr. Smith!


I'm a mama to two beautiful kids. They and my husband are bilingual, but my Russian skills are currently about toddler-level!
