He is a Theater Artist with DramaDogs, a Theater Company, which he Co-Founded with his wife, E. Bonnie Lewis; visit their website: www.dramadogs.org. Ken began his movement and fitness career in 1988 teaching Hi/Lo Impact. In 1989 with the invention and development of equipment in Group Fitness he taught and developed his teaching skills in Step, Slide, Resistance Training and Spinning. Curious about Pilates, he began studying, practicing and training to teach the work in 1994. He met Ron Fletcher in 1996 and committed his Pilates teaching focus to The Ron Fletcher Work. Over the past 18 years at the Santa Barbara Athletic Club Ken taught Group Fitness classes and worked one-on-one with individuals on the Pilates equipment in the studio. In 1997, wanting to work intimately with body/mind connections, Ken chose to study and work with Debbie Rosas and Carlos Rosas, Co-creators of Nia, a fusion fitness and transformational program of movement. Teaching his first class in 1999, Ken generated a community of committed students and practitioners of Nia and became a Nia Black Belt in 2003. In 2005 he became a Nia Education Trainer facilitating Workshops, Master Classes and White Belt Intensives. The Intensive is an immersion into the movement of The Body’s Way - the Nia practice of Body, Mind and Spirit; it is the initial stage of a four belt developmental discipline of Nia. As one of the Nia’s International Trainers Ken works to inspire, educate and motivate everyone to become healthier; more integrated and balanced in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual lives, inviting his students to make the connections of the mindful body – to connect breath with sensation, feeling, and imagination. Currently in Santa Barbara, Ken owns EmBODYment, A Studio for Movement and Creative Integration at Yoga Soup; developing and evolving the study and practice of personal empowerment through the conditioning and expressivity of physical movement stimulating body/mind integration, emotional agility, and spiritual awakening.
