Kristy de Poel

Barre Instructor

Growing up Kristy was an artistic gymnast until she was told that she was too tall for the sport. She then moved to rhythmic gymnastics where height wasn’t a concern. She loved that this sport included an element of ballet and went on to practise classical ballet alongside her training.

Since retiring from rhythmic gymnastics to focus on her education Kristy has practised yoga. This became her passion as well as running.
