MEET ROSHINI

Owner and founder of The Pilates Psychology

Roshini

A Note from Roshini:

Hi there, and thank you for being here! I'm Roshini, a licensed psychotherapist and certified Pilates instructor. I founded The Pilates Psychology, LLC, RK Counseling, LLC and am Pilates Team Captain at Bay Club San Francisco. I'm an Indian American, native Dallasite who followed my heart to the Bay Area in 2023 to combine my specialties of Pilates and mental healthcare. My purpose and mission as a psychotherapist is to take evidence-based psychotherapy off the therapy couch and into real life! I believe that therapy concepts shouldn't be a secret and can be infused into many hobbies and habits to help us live our most meaningful lives. Off the mat and reformer, you'll find me hiking, cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family! You can learn more about my professional experience below.

Psychology Experience

Psychology Experience

Roshini's 15 year psychology experience is in evidence-based psychotherapy, crisis management and care coordination of children and adults managing depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, eating disorders and hearing loss. She has provided trauma-informed, gender affirming care in inpatient units and outpatient clinics at Children's Health Dallas, UT Southwestern Medical Center and RK Counseling and LifeStance Health.

 

Most recently, Roshini served as clinical manager and program leader for suicide prevention intensive outpatient programs and outpatient departments. With this experience, Roshini has given many educational talks and media interviews on psychological wellness in interviews with NPR, KRLD, CBS, NBC, ABC, and local media outlets. Roshini has also published her research on the psychological effects of hearing loss in Ear and Hearing and Frontiers in Psychology academic journals and in audiology textbook publications.

Pilates Experience

Pilates Experience

During her mental health career, Roshini gained a genuine interest to learn more about classical Pilates and its impact on mental health after starting consistent Pilates in 2018. She became a certified classical Pilates instructor on the mat, tower, reformer, cadillac, and high chair. Roshini soon began pairing therapy concepts with classical Pilates, creating restorative Pilates formats on the mat, tower and reformer as an instructor at Kiva Classical Pilates in Dallas, Texas.

 

Roshini brought her mind+body Pilates skills to the Bay Area through her private practice in Mill Valley, and the Pilates program at Bay Club San Francisco, creating innovative Pilates class formats including Pilates Pump mat interval flow, mind+body semi-private reformer small groups and specialty Pilates pop ups. Honoring the classical Pilates tradition, Roshini received mentorship from Mary Bowen, a psychologist and revered Pilates elder who worked directly with Joseph Pilates.
