Kristen Concannon

Certified Pilates Instructor

Kristen was an avid dancer from childhood through her teens. Prior to teaching Pilates, she had a career in the financial industry, during which stayed healthy and fit through all forms of exercise. It wasn’t until she found Pilates that she discovered the passion she once experienced as a child through dance.

Diving head first into a full certification training program with Balanced Body in 2013, she found herself forever inspired and changed. You will find her classes creative and always adding some new moves to help challenge and change your body, mind and spirit.

She is very excited to be part of a practice that can bring such value to life. Out of the studio, Kristen loves traveling and teaching Pilates abroad to combine her two passions: sharing her love for Pilates and exploring new places. In addition to Pilates she enjoys yoga, barre, hiking, SUP, snowboarding and spin. Kristen also is passionate about eating healthy and incorporating organic foods into her diet, embodying healthy living in its entirety. She is super excited to share her passion at the Pilates Shoppe!

Jasmine Tan - PIlates Shoppe - Aliso Viejo

Jasmine Tan

Certified Pilates Instructor

Physical fitness has always been a major component of Jasmine’s life. Jasmine was introduced to Pilates as a complement to running. Not only did Pilates help stretch, tone and strengthen her body for long runs, it also helped relieve back pain and strengthen her posture after long hours in the office. In 2018, Jasmine left her corporate career to pursue her passion of teaching. She became a certified Pilates Instructor in 2019 and has been teaching since. 

Jasmine loves seeing all of the amazing benefits Pilates brings to others, both mentally and physically. She loves using her creativity and energy to challenge her group classes and tailors her private lessons to her clients’ specific needs and goals. Teaching Pilates has been a life changing experience for Jasmine and she hopes she can bring a life changing experience to others.

When she’s not in the studio, Jasmine is spending time with her husband and their two golden retrievers. She loves exploring new cities with her husband and takes trips back to Missouri as often as possible to visit family.
