Meet The Trainers

Kim Kraushar

Master Instructor Trainer
for STOTT Pilates, Total Barre, ZEN-GA, Merrithew Fascial Movement

Kim Kraushar is truly an innovator in the world of mind/body fitness. As a dancer and an athlete, her passion for movement started early on. Yet after a significant back injury as a teenager, she realized that in order to continue doing the activities she loved, she had to keep her body healthy and injury free. Kim graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Kinesiology (the study of human movement).

This perfectly applicable vocation has led her on a journey into how fundamentally crucial the mind/body disciplines are in order to live a healthy, balanced life. In the early nineties, Kim traveled throughout west and southeast Asia, falling in love with the culture and people. Along the way, she studied meditation, music, yoga, and even Thai massage. She and her husband, Brent, brought all this new-found wisdom back to Interlude Spa (the family business, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia).

Yet it was a Pilates class during a dance internship in the late eighties that defined the core of Interlude's MindBody Fitness program. Kim could not shake the desire to implement this unique concept of Pilates into her own program. She trained for a few years in Toronto where she became the second person in Canada outside of the Toronto headquarters to become a STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer. In addition, Interlude was one of the first STOTT Pilates licensed training centres in Canada, an impressive feat, as now over one hundred exist across the globe.
