I’ve been a student of Pilates since 1997 and a teacher since 2000. I am completely dedicated to continuing education. Within one month of having tested out out of my original certification program, I attended an international Pilates conference. Since that very first conference, I have been taking advantage of every educational opportunity and have become a highly discriminating consumer of Pilates continuing education. I have never passed on the opportunity to take Karen’s workshops and have attended all of them multiple times! Karen’s workshops are comprehensive and encyclopedic! She includes classical forms, modern forms, studio-centered variations and gives attribution to every source. What is most important to me and most rare, although ever-present in Karen’s workshops, is the WHY. Why do a movement this way versus that way? Why perform or teach a movement at all? I also value what Karen teaches about how. Karen does not simply teach how to do an exercise or how to teach an exercise but she teaches the skill- building that comes before the movement. With this skill-building Karen is teaching how to teach, the science of teaching. Then there is the art of teaching for which I lack the words to describe what Karen transmits in the art of teaching. I can say that I have an enormous amount of gratitude for Karen and everything she has taught me. Karen’s workshops are about integrity: integrity of movement and professional integrity. They are invaluable and I cannot recommend Karen more highly as a teacher and teacher of teachers. There simply is no one better!
