Kris Duke

NCPT Certified Pilates Instructor

Kris Duke is originally from the Spokane area, but has also lived in Denver, CO and Las Vegas, NV. Kris’s interest in physical fitness started when she was a college student. Her interest started with aerobics and weight training at SFCC. Sixteen years ago she hesitantly ventured into an adult ballet class while her young daughters were taking their own classes. She liked it so much, that she started taking floor barre and Pilates, which were also offered as part of the adult class schedule.

Ten years ago, Kris discovered how Pilates can bring a person back from injuries and make someone stronger than they were before. When Kris’s daughter Tori was recovering from back and ankle injuries due to dance, Kris found Angelie Melzer to help her daughter rehabilitate her body. Angelie insisted that Kris would be an excellent instructor, and with a little bit of convincing, Kris took her first Balanced Body course, Body Barre. Kris instantly fell in love with Pilates. Since then she has fully certified out with Balanced Body, trained on the Oov, Bodhi, Motr, Orbit and has become a NCPT Certified Instructor.

Kris continues to grow everyday in her love and appreciation of Pilates. She also enjoys meeting new people and helping them discover what their body is capable of with proper Pilates training.

Kris Duke instructs the following:

Reformer Jumpboard


This large apparatus class will be different every week!

Ooving around the Studio

Where's the Oov today? You'll have to come to class to find out. Oov might be on the Reformer...the Springboard...the Chair...or the Mat...who knows? 


This class is designed around you and your friends getting together to move your bodies.

Reformer FLOW

Reformer Flow follows a classical Pilates flow with a twist of Barre/Dance mixed in!

Groovin with the Oov


The springboard is a mounted wall unit with springs of different resistance for a challenging all over body workout.

Combine the resistance and flow of the Reformer with the power of the Pilates Chair and you've got a duo to reckon with!

Pilates Arc-Surprise

A Pilates Arc. Where we will put it...nobody knows...this could be a mat class, reformer class or circuit with it around the entire studio... A SURPRISE each time you come in!

You’ll appreciate the improved comfort and ergonomics - use it to provide back support and stability for a variety of strength and mobility challenges.
