PHYSIOTHERAPIST AND CLINICAL
Kobi is Calibrate Pilates’ founder and team lead. Growing up, she was athletic and prone to injuries, so her physio introduced her to Pilates at 15. Through this, she grew to appreciate the beauty of the mind-body connections that Pilates encourages.
This experience led Kobi to pursue physiotherapy and undertake a concurrent apprenticeship in the Pilates method. She’s been combining these skills since 2003.
Kobi started Calibrate Pilates in 2015, as she wanted to share her excitement and enthusiasm for Pilates with the rehab world...
In her spare time, Kobi enjoys travelling through the great outdoors, good novels, and good food.
