I was certified in Pilates before I took Karen Carlson’s teacher training program. To say that I learned vastly more under Karen is an understatement. Karen took the bare framework of what I had been taught and expanded upon it thoroughly, comprehensively, professionally and kindly. Karen was very willing to acknowledge my own and my fellow students and trainers studies in Pilates and anatomy during our many hours in workshops and private sessions. Her own knowledge of the subjects of anatomy and Pilates coupled together is unrivaled in anyone else I have ever met. In short, I felt her training to be highly valuable to me as a teacher, as a mover, and as a student of Pilates and I am quite happy to count myself a better teacher because of her efforts.
