Claire Kinchen

PT, DPT, NCPT (Owner / Instructor)

Claire started her path to learning about the human body while earning her B.S. in Exercise Science at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss).  She knew early on she wanted to pursue a career where she could help others recover from injury and learn more about their anatomy in the process.  She went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Texas Southwestern.  She was first exposed to Pilates while in graduate school, but revisited it on a deeper level in 2017 when she began participating in classes to better her own body awareness.  In 2018, she started taking Pilates coursework to learn more about how she could use Pilates as a tool to help her patients.  She then went on to complete a comprehensive teacher certification program, as well as passing examination to be considered a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT).  She has continued to deepen her understanding of movement principles while helping others to move more healthily.  When she isn’t doing Pilates, she enjoys running, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family.


Change happens through movement and movement heals.
