Katy Boyd has been teaching movement to individuals and groups since 1997.
She has taught Pilates, yoga, dance conditioning and authentic movement classes on the music and dance faculties of the Idyllwild Arts Academy and the Interlochen Center for the Arts Summer Festival. She has also served as a guest lecturer/instructor at several colleges. Katy’s background in figure skating and dance, as both a soloist and choreographer, initiated her interest in alignment and the physical principles of movement. These movement forms demand a strong center body with flexible arms and legs along a stable spine. Exercises for core support, alignment and flexibility benefit people/movers of all interests and ages. This inspired Katy to receive teaching certification from Long Beach Dance Conditioning in applied principals of movement and advanced Pilates technique, training certification from Body Kinetics M.V., and certification in bodywork from the Heartwood Institute. Before joining the team of instructors at Body by X, Katy has been a private and group instructor at Frogs Gym and Milagros Movement Arts in San Diego and the Mill Valley Health Club. Her classes and work with individuals emphasize body alignment and direction and flow of movement to facilitate efficient, safe, enjoyable and embodied physical training.
