About Rebekah Rotstein

Primary Teacher Training: Kane School

Rebekah Rotstein is the founder of Incorporating Movement, a New York City-based Pilates and movement education organization which integrates functional anatomy and biomechanics principles into mind-body exercise. She teaches seminars and guest presents to exercise professionals, physical therapists and the general public throughout the United States and internationally including the Pilates Method Alliance, Balanced Body: Pilates on Tour, and the Pilates Leader Programme.

Rebekah’s formal anatomy education began in the sports medicine department of Smith College working as a student athletic trainer after chronic injuries ended her ballet career. She trained at the Kane School of Core Integration in New York under the tutelage of Kelly Kane, where she later served as a Senior Expert Instructor and led coursework including Special Populations as part of the teacher training faculty. Rebekah’s approach to Pilates has been additionally influenced by Madeline Black and Marie-José Blom-Lawrence. Her ongoing study of the body includes learning from educators outside the Pilates world including Tom Myers, Irene Dowd, and Sara Meeks. She also participates in immersion courses at medical schools along with yearly cadaver dissection with Gil Hedley.

An expert in osteoporosis and bone health, Rebekah designed the Buff Bones® workout which she has presented at conferences and offers annually at the renowned fitness resort Rancho La Puerta in Mexico. Her written work includes Safe Exercise Strategies and Bone Strengthening Techniques for Clients with Osteoporosis for Hatherleigh Medical Education’s series for fitness professionals. She was diagnosed with osteoporosis at only 28 and has since improved her bone density through diet and exercise alone. Rebekah is a partner of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in its Office of Women's Health to promote its Best Bones Forever!™ campaign, aimed at teaching bone health to young girls. She is a contributing expert for the Web site of Dr. Andrew Weil and for Pilates-Pro, and is frequently interviewed in various media including CNN, Vogue Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living Radio.
