Licensed Physical Therapist
Kristen Briody is a NYS licensed Physical Therapist and a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor trained through Balanced Body University. She earned her BA in Psychology from Binghamton University in 1988. She went on to study at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons program in Physical Therapy where she earned her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 1991. Kristen’s background includes work in pediatric and orthopedic settings. After a neck injury, she worked with a Pilates instructor and realized what an incredibly powerful tool it would be to merge the benefits of Pilates into her P.T. practice at Armonk P.T. & Sports Training.
Kristen has recently completed West Side Dance PT’s Dance Medicine Practicum Modules III and IV (Hip, Pelvis, Spine and Shoulder Girdle) and has worked to develop Pilates programming for young dancers in the Westchester area. Individual Pilates sessions on Balanced Body’s Clinical Reformer / Tower are also available to address post rehab fitness goals, sport specific training, and postural reeducation.
