Christi Idavoy, PMA®-CPT, has dedicated her life to movement. As a young dancer and philosophy student at NYU she found an instant affinity with the science and practice of yoga. The Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in NYC was Christi’s second home as she studied the traditions of Swami Rama from 1999 to 2001. On a voyage to share her passion for yoga as a healing art she moved to Costa Rica where she taught yoga and furthered her studies as a graduate student at the United Nations University for Peace. In 2005 she stumbled into a Pilates studio in San Jose, Costa Rica where she started her career as a Pilates instructor. Today Christi has lectured and taught yoga and Pilates in many Latin American countries thanks to her role at Polestar Pilates Education. When she met Polestar founder, Brent Anderson in 2009, she knew she had found the organization that would allow her to bring together her passion for international relations and development with her career as a movement practitioner. As a Polestar Senior Educator and Director of Polestar Latin America, Christi is a teacher’s teacher and is the owner of the first Polestar Pilates franchise in Miami, FL. In January of 2018 she also opened Polestar Pilates Costa Rica with her partner, Natalia Montero. Christi’s teaching style is captivating and educational, leaving her students feeling like they receive more than a work-out, but rather a deeper sense of connection and understanding of themselves. She holds certifications in yoga, Pilates and GYROTONIC®.
