This week for Small Business Saturday we highlighted Sculpere Studio, an amazing yoga, pilates and ballet studio located in the heart of Northern Liberties! At Sculpere you are bound to find your balance as their focus is helping each client with numerous techniques that guide the body, mind and soul.
Sculpere Studio, both method and studio is the love and magic of its owner, Cristina Espaillat. A Philadelphia-area native, Cristina began her study of dance at the Rock School of Dance Education, at five years of age. She continued her study there for the next 14 years, concentrating on classical ballet. Upon graduation she was accepted to the Performing Arts program at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana where she majored in dance and earned a BFA in Dance Performance.
Eighteen years of disciplined dance study paved the way for Cristina to realize her lifelong dream of becoming a professional dancer, when she was accepted to the City Ballet of San Diego in 2003. Rigorous training and performing was the single priority in Cristina’s life until she broke her foot during rehearsals in 2005. During rehabilitation from her injury, Cristina found herself drawn to yoga and Pilates for both the physical, and mental rewards. In 2007 she completed a 200hr yoga teacher certification at the Yoga Life Institute in Devon, PA. From a ballerina in California to a yoga instructor in Philadelphia, a new life journey began.
An artist and entrepreneur, Cristina is devoted to creating beauty and balance in the world. Her main source of inspiration comes from the healing turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea, where she spends the summers with her family. She aims to cultivate the effortless balance of mediterranean life, and incorporate it into Sculpere’s message, as a retreat from the monotony and stress of busy East Coast life. Cristina is an avid animal lover and mother to a rescue dog. She charitably offers her time as a foster mom for rescue dogs and regularly contributes to local animal rescues.
