After having Kim as my mentor in the Polestar Pilates Teacher Training Cohort, I feel incredibly prepared to seek employment and jump into the workforce as a new Pilates instructor. Her wealth of knowledge on the repertoire and the body is truly a gift that any student would be lucky to have. Kim fosters a safe and fun learning environment, where students feel supported and able to explore. By the time students have completed their training with her, they are ready to succeed as teachers. Her energy lights up the room and inspires new generations of Pilates instructors.

Kim Gibilisco has a unique ability to speak a language that your body understands. She motivates and encourages while providing the necessary framework in order for us to be successful in the Polestar Pilates program. She is a treasure and we are lucky to have her as a teacher.

Kim is truly a movement whisperer. She possesses a keen understanding of the body and movement in all ranges from normal to injured. Kim is an amazing teacher and every session with her has been helpful and inspiring to me in my Pilates training. I’m grateful to have her as my mentor in the Polestar Pilates Transition program.

Michelle Kennedy, PT, Polestar Transition Student

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Kim. For starters, she is a fantastic motivator. She engages you and gets you excited about the material you are learning, regardless of how difficult or challenging it may be. Kim is very supportive and patient and she will help you find your way back on track. What really stand out to me about Kim though is how she truly wants all of her students to succeed. She believes in what she is teaching, and she wishes to impart this knowledge upon all of her students so that they may experience success, good health, and prosperity.
