Bristin was born and raised in Newport Beach, Ca. She started dancing at the age of two and it quickly became her passion. She graduated from Newport Harbor ’00 and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in ’04 with a B.S. in Kinesiology. That same year she received her Pilates Certification from Body Arts and Science International where she studied directly under Rael Isacowitz. She immediately fell in love with Pilates because it synchronized her passion for dance and her Kinesiology degree.
