Cailin Santos – Owner and Instructor
Cailin was first introduced to Pilates in 2005 and has been practicing at studios in Boston, New York and Charlotte ever since. She felt an immediate connection with the movements in both body and mind, and knew immediately she wanted to share her passion for it with others. In 2006, she received her Pilates Mat certification through Power Pilates in Boston, and began teaching classes in New York. After having two children and experiencing the benefits of equipment-based Pilates throughout and after her pregnancies, she became an even stronger believer in the movement system and wanted to take her teaching to the next level. In 2014, she took the Comprehensive Equipment Training Program through Balanced Body, and continues to teach pilates equipment classes and online classes at her studio. She has also been offering free online pilates mat classes through her YouTube channel, MVMT with Cailin, since 2020.
Cailin’s goal is to help her clients gain heightened awareness of how they move their bodies, with a focus on quality of movements to build strength, flexibility and flow in all their activities. She develops creative, challenging, and balanced programs that focus on her clients’ goals and needs. She has also been trained in Pre- and Post-natal Pilates, Practical Release (muscle release work through balls and rollers), and the SmartSpine Smart Core System with Marie Jose Blom.
Cailin also enjoys yoga, nutrition, reading, spending time with family/friends, and, most recently, horseback riding. She is a local Davidson resident, where she lives with her husband, two children, one dog and 2 cats.
