Kim Gibilisco is a performer, choreographer and experienced movement educator, who has been teaching dance and Pilates in the private sector and university level since 1996. Since 2000, Kim has maintained a private Pilates practice specializing in cross-training dancers and working with her husband, Robert Turner, on pre and post surgical cases. Their company, Intuit Movement Lab, is the culmination of many years of collaborative work, which blends their respective areas of expertise in movement and rehabilitation through a creative lens for each individual client. Their approach is focused on delivering clients back to their fullest movement potentials with lasting results.
In addition to her private practice, Kim is also a Polestar Senior Educator, curriculum writer and workshop presenter. Kim strives to develop workshops that bridge the gap between health care professionals and Pilates professionals, in an effort to offer clients integrated movement and healing experiences. Kim’s workshops have brought her to teaching across the USA and all over the world on platforms such as, the Pilates Method Alliance Annual Conferences, Balanced Body® presents Pilates on Tour®, SPRINGS – Köln, Polestar Pilates Australia (Melbourne and Sydney), Danceworks-Berlin and Honolulu, Hawaii and IADMS in Hong Kong, China. In 2013, she adapted the Polestar Professional Curriculum to meet university standards for curriculum approval at Rutgers University. The launch of this program marked the first 450-hour Pilates Teacher Training Program to be offered at the university level in the USA. The Polestar Pilates Teacher Training Program at Rutgers University is the first and only teacher-training program to use the Pilates Method Alliance Board Examination as its exit exam.
Kim holds a BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, a MA from NYU-Steinhardt School and a MFA from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She became a Board Certified Pilates Teacher through the Pilates Method Alliance in 2005.
