When a job change allowed Shelley Kapitulik to escape the daily grind of commuting to New York City, she began to spend her reclaimed free time working out more. When aggravated knees forced her to reduce the intensity of workouts, Shelley, who had already been practicing both Pilates mat and Reformer for a number of years, began to increase her frequency of participating in classes at area gyms.
Shelley’s enthusiasm and love for the method inspired her to teach; she earned her Advanced Mat Certification to teach in the classical style with Power Pilates in New York City, helping people at all levels of physical fitness develop core strength and flexibility, and improve overall health. With nearly ten years of teaching experience in large fitness clubs, award-winning, boutique studios and as a visiting instructor at four and five-star resorts around the world, she recently earned her Restorative Yoga Teacher Training certification in New York City and Yin Yoga Teacher Training certification through Kaia Yoga, amongst other certifications.
In addition to teaching, Shelley is a freelance publicist, specializing in media, wellness and lifestyle clients.
