Nina Kramer graduated from Hunter College with a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Education. She was a high school ESL teacher in New York City for 25 years and has worked with teens from all over the world. Nina is a classically trained Pilates Instructor with dual certifications in mat and apparatus. She began taking Pilates classes in Brooklyn back in 2011. There she was introduced to Joe Pilates’ other equipment and felt compelled to learn more. She has since completed two 500-hour certification programs from BodyTonic in Brooklyn under Jennifer De Luca and from Beacon Pilates in the Hudson Valley under Juliet Harvey. She also studied Iyengar Yoga for 30 years in Manhattan prior to becoming a Pilates teacher. Both yoga and Pilates have helped her cultivate strength, stability, better mobility and a strong body-mind connection. She is passionate about the method and wants to share it with anyone willing to try it.
