About Ki Lan
(pronounced 'key DAHN') Black is the owner/founder of Honest Movement Pilates. Ki Lan has been teaching movement for over 30 years. Her teaching experience began with teaching dance. That passion to teach in a precise and mind-body beneficial way has transformed into how she teaches Pilates and other mind-body modalities. She has seen how Pilates has transformed herself, especially after having children, and others to become stronger and more bodily aware.

Ki Lan understands how debilitating injuries can be and will do all that she can to help you prevent them. She also had chronic back pain and back surgery. Her back pain and dance interest prompted her to take a more academic approach to the body. She started going back to school to focus on sciences and has been participating in educational programs about the body ever since.
