Tristan Diaz NCPT
Tristan started practicing Pilates to address an injured hip and to help with chronic pain it also gave her an incredible sense of well-being.
She was so passionate about the positive, healing effects Pilates had on her body and mind that she decided to train as a Pilates instructor and share those benefits with others as well as her patients.
Her goal is to work with clients of all levels and support them in their journey towards wellness.
As a Registered Nurse and Board Certified Holistic Nurse Coach, Tristan is a strong believer that the best medicine for pain is movement.
Classes with Tristan focus on awareness, proper alignment, flexibility, and strength and being present. By practicing deliberate presence in Pilates, we begin to automatically have more presence in all of our activities and interactions thus making life not only less stressful but the rich, beautiful experience we are intended to have!
Be assured that you’ll be challenged, have fun, and leave feeling invigorated and inspired and maybe a little taller!!

Leave Tristan a Review!
Tristan is a relatively new instructor at the Pilates Studio in Hadley but she is not new to teaching and is very knowledgeable & experienced in Pilates and general fitness. I like her approach and look forward to trying out new classes that are just starting. She is a great addition to the staff there!
I have been fortunate to have taken a number of classes with Tristan over the past few months. She is an extremely skilled instructor with a compassionate, warm personality. Her classes are very relaxing, yet you work your core and increase flexibility through her very thoughtful flow of exercises. I highly recommend taking a class with Tristan. You'll be very happy that you did!

Evening reformer classes with Tristan are a must! Jump class on Monday nights and reformer class on Tuesday nights. She is an amazing instructor. She always comes prepared with new exercises to try. A full body work out. I always feel challenged and extremely satisfied with what I have accomplished. Thank you Tristan!
