Introduction: Hi! Thank you for checking me out :) I've been a Pilates studio owner/instructor in the San Francisco Bay area and previously in Beverly Hills since 2006. I have been a licenced esthetician and professional makeup artist since 1997. I'm here to keep your body, mind and skin strong and resilient. I currently have an online studio where I can offer private and small classes. I do have a reformer at our vineyard home in Sonoma County where you can receive private Pilates instruction. Depending on where I am I can travel to you. During Covid I prefer to do online classes but we can talk and see if social distance sessions work for the both of us. I am knowledgeable, patient and friendly. I will meet you at whatever level you are at even if you are brand new to Pilates. I can offer you virtual skin and product analysis to guide you to your skincare goals saving you frustration and money. Now that we can offer indoor facials again, I am taking appointments in my Alameda facial office where I treat all skin concerns using microdermabrasion, microcurrent, a variety of alpha hydroxy peels and all natural ingredients. I am highly skilled and passionate about my work as a skin care professional.

Had a great experience with Chris! I scheduled an appointment for a Polish Microdermabrasion as I felt this would be the best treatment for me since its been almost 1 year since my last facial. Chris examined my skin and proceeded with the treatment. The ambiance was very relaxing, and the products she used on me felt extremely hydrating to my skin. She also gave me excellent tips on how to maintain my glow! Thanks Chris!

Chris is fantastic!! She's also generous. She put together a sample kit of products based on my skin concerns and mailed it at her own expense. The products efficacy met my expectations and more. Thank you Thumbtack for introducing us.

I love Chris! Her knowledge and expertise in skin care is so valuable to me. I am a picky customer because I have sensitive skin and I’m prone to breaking out if I don’t take care of it. She never disappoints! She’s always ready to answer all your skin care questions and she genuinely cares about your facial needs and overall health.

Chris is amazing. She is thorough, knowledgeable and very kind. She goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy. She takes the time to explain the process and why certain products/procedures are important or necessary to your desired outcome. I never feel the pressure to purchase anything, like I have in other establishments. I recommend highly, you will be pleased with the results.

I have taken Pilates from Chris for about ten years. She is absolutely the best teacher and a wonderful person. Chris has lots of loyal followers. Several classes take place outside in the beautiful vineyard setting In Cloverdale. Seeing Chris’ dog Sue walk into view during a class is an added bonus.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically charge per hour but as of lately I also have recorded classes available online for a low monthly membership. I am between two homes so depending on my travel my rates may shift a bit. if you're interested in a combination of virtual and live classes we can work out a package to save you money.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to have a conversation via zoom to talk about your goals your concerns your current condition and fitness level. I think this is a good way to see if our personalities were will work well together and I am the right choice for you.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Back in early 2000s I had my skin care practice within a wellness center in Beverly Hills. I fell in love with Pilates after adding a studio to our practice. I completed a 2-year teacher apprenticeship and returned home to the Bay area to open my first studio in 2008. My first love is the Pilates Reformer but after shelter in place with covid-19 I rediscovered my love for mat.
