-ABOUT MY PRACTICE-
I have been a certified & practicing Weight Lifting coach for over 25 years.
I began teaching Pilates in 1997 when I realized that I could teach weight lifting better when applying the principles of Pilates.
The foundation of my practice combines the physicality of an intense workout with the mental connection of an athlete.
By integrating the six Pilates principles of centering, concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow, I strive to promote an understanding of the interdependency of all these aspects in personal health and wellness.
As all people's preferences and bodies are different, so should one's workouts.
You may choose to workout solo, with a partner, or in a group setting.
Karen can accommodate your needs @ any of the below settings (prices will vary with the group size).
Teaching for Strengthening and Lengthening
Pilates helps build a strong core from which one can transition into new positions and exercises. This flow centers around control and precision, with a diversity of exercises and modifications to suit a range of levels from beginner to advanced. Pilates Fundamentals is a course that feels good and fits with every healthy lifestyle.
