Karen Schwalbe Jones, began Pilates. Evolved. in 2017 after selling her Los Angeles Pilates studio to move to Austin, Texas. For over 25 years, she has been combining her wealth of knowledge in biomechanics, anatomy and Pilates with the good ol' get in shape and stay attitude of fitness.
Whether you want to improve your flexibility, play golf or tennis better, accelerate recovery after an injury, or simply make a positive lifestyle change, Pilates. Evolved. has something to offer you.


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.
