Join Christi Idavoy to add a little Pilates to your day and connect to your breath, space, and time in a renewed way. Pilates (pronounced puh-lah-teez and not pie-lates) is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavor but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.

About the Instructor
Christi Idavoy, BA, NCPT
Christi Idavoy has dedicated her life to movement. As a young dancer and philosophy
student at NYU she found an instant affinity with the science and practice of yoga. The
Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in NYC was Christi’s second home as
she studied the traditions of Swami Rama from 1999 – 2001. On a voyage to share her
passion for yoga as a healing art she moved to Costa Rica where she taught yoga and
furthered her studies as a graduate student at the United Nations University for Peace. In
2005 she stumbled into a Pilates studio in San Jose, CR where she started her career as a
Pilates instructor. Today Christi has lectured and taught yoga and Pilates in many Latin
American countries thanks to her role at Polestar Pilates Education. When she met Polestar
founder, Brent Anderson in 2009, she knew she had found the organization that would allow
her to bring together her passion for international relations and development with her career
as a movement practitioner. As a Polestar Senior Educator and Director of Polestar Latin
America, Christi is a teacher’s teacher and is the owner of the first Polestar Pilates franchise
in Miami, FL. She is also the co-owner of Polestar Pilates Costa Rica.
Christi’s teaching style is captivating and educational, leaving her students feeling like they
receive more than a work-out, but rather a deeper sense of connection and understanding of
themselves. She holds certifications in yoga, Pilates and GYROTONIC®.
