Christina Schwefel

Christina is the current owner of Go Figure Barre Studios. Having owned and operated Go Figure Nantucket since its opening in 2013, she was thrilled to take over the CT and NY locations in 2016. As a certified yoga and Pilates instructor, Christina has a longstanding interest in fitness methods that strengthen and lengthen the spine, improve posture, and tone and sculpt hard to change areas of the body. When she was introduced to the Figure Method in 2009, she was instantly inspired by the rigor and intensity of the method and amazed and motivated by the way it transformed clients’ bodies. In the coming year, Christina has an ambitious plan to re-develop The Figure Method to strengthen its connection to classical ballet technique with a renewed focus on postural alignment. Christina holds a Masters in Gender Studies from Harvard and a Ph.D. from Teachers College, Columbia University where she still actively teaches and publishes.
