Meet The Calibrate Pilates Team

Kobi Jack

PHYSIOTHERAPIST AND CLINICAL
PILATES INSTRUCTOR

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.

Shruti S Paliwal

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT

Shruti's true calling is to create a positive work environment and build a strong professional community. After working for four years in a multi-national company, Shruti decided to quit the 9-5 grind and work remotely to upgrade the quality of her life and find meaningful work.

Since 2020, Shruti has been responsible for the administrative and technical side of Calibrate Pilates, ensuring the smooth operation of everything on the back end of the business.

In her spare time, Shruti loves to spend time with her dogs and finds solace in tending to her plants. Both Shruti and her partner are animal lovers and avid wildlife enthusiasts, so if you don't find her online, you can track her down at one of the many tiger reserves in India.
