Vanessa Ursini-Kinsey started her Pilates practice in 2013 and instantly fell in love. After graduating from Metropolitan State College of Denver with a bachelor’s degree in business, Vanessa felt as if she still hadn’t discovered her real passion in life. In the summer of 2013 Vanessa took her first Pilates class in downtown Denver and was hooked. She was taking classes almost 6 times a week and noticing major changes to her body and total health in general. It helped her hike longer and faster, her back wasn’t hurting after long shifts on her feet, and slowly but surely was noticing more and more muscle tone to her entire body. It wasn’t long after this love affair started that she knew she was destined to teach The Pilates Method. By the summer of 2014, Vanessa graduated from the Polestar® Pilates Comprehensive Training Program and since then has countless hours of teaching and continuing education under her belt. She has since become a Mentor for the Polestar Comprehensive in Denver and she also specializes in rehabilitation from your common low back pain to hip and knee replacements and everything in between. Vanessa has also taken a number of pre and post natal continuing education courses to help safely guide women throughout and after their pregnancies. When she’s not teaching Vanessa is usually adventuring with her partner in crime, Billie, whether they’re backpacking, snowboarding, or traveling the globe they love spending their days off together wherever it might take them.
