By promoting the exploration of physical boundaries in a conscious manner, we can help bring our clients an awareness of the body, mind, and spirit and assist them on their path to better health.
Dominika is the Owner/Director of Kinesphere Center for Movement Education. As a youth she played sports and danced and in her teens took up the latter seriously. She earned a BFA in Modern Dance Performance and Choreography, performed professionally in New York and, Europe, and then earned an MFA in Dance Performance. She began teaching dance and, entralled by biomechanics and kinesiology, loved honing in on the “how” and “why” of movement technique. This path of inquiry eventually led her to study Pilates and GYROTONIC® exercise, which she adeptly incorporated in to her dance teaching before eventually opening a studio, Kinesphere LLC. Her Pilates mentor is Marie-Jose Blom, whose focus on enriching and understanding the mechanics of fundamental movements was a natural course of study for Dominika. She received her Pilates certification from Marie-Jose in 1998 and continues to study under her tutelage A lover of small props for tactile cueing, Dominika was thrilled when Marie-Jose created the SmartSpine system–a perfect complement to the vision of KCME– which, by releasing fascial tension and enhancing blood flow, assists in bringing optimal alignment and efficiency of movement to the our clients.
Dominika is proud to be an inaugural SmartSpine Academy trainer. Sheis also GYROTONIC Master Trainer, conducting all courses for preparing new teachers and updating current instructors in GYROTONIC Level I methodology.
