Krisen Day was born and raised in Wyoming. She earned her Bachelors of Science and Dance degree with certifications in Pilates and Labanotation (a system of analyzing and notating movement) from Texas Woman’s University in 1996. She spent 3 years in Seattle where, along with performing, she trained Seahawks players, Pacific Northwest Ballet dancers, and was the Director of Rehabilitation for the Washington High School for Performing Arts. She moved to the East Coast and split her time between Massachusetts and New York while she pursued her dance and film career. While there, she owned and operated 3 Pilates Studios, taught at UMASS, Mt. Holyoke College, University of Hartford, Cooley Dickinson Hospital, and guest lectured for several sports teams, health organizations, and performance groups. Along with her certifications from the PhysicalMind Institute, Physical Conditioning Center, and Polestar Pilates Education, she received advanced certifications in Pilates-based neurological rehabilitation, rotational sports assessment, and gait analysis from Polestar. She is also a certified kettlebell instructor (Kettlebell Concepts), and has further training though Polestar’s rehabilitation series, MELT, and Hannah Somatic Education. She founded Prana Physical Arts and Momentum Pilates Centers prior to opening The Fix: Physical Restoration in 2006 intending to remind every-body that by restoring our physical health we can renew our lives. Krisen’s choreographic and performance endeavors give her a platform to experiment with her ongoing interests in body dynamics, limits, and function, as well as relationships and perspective.
