Had I not had the good fortune to meet Karen Carlson 15 years ago, when I was in my late 50’s, I know without question, that I would not feel as well or have as functional a body as I have today. When I began Pilates training with Karen, my neck and shoulders hurt much of the time; today, I rarely have that problem and it’s because my body has learned to relax, to come into alignment and to get those shoulders down! Each visit continues to feel like a time of learning, both intellectually and physically. Karen Carlson is a fabulous diagnostician and teacher.

I have been a client of Karen Carlson’s on a weekly basis for the last ten years. During these wonderful sessions, I have come to realize that Karen is in a class by herself. She has an inherent and deep understanding of how the human body works. She is the Leonardo da Vinci of Pilates—She is a master. Karen is very professional, courteous and really, really loves her work. For years I suffered from degenerative disc disease and all that goes with it–pain, surgeries and the discouragement of going through the gamut of professionals to find a different direction, a new procedure, a new someone to help me live with this disease and restore my health. Thanks to God, I ended up with Karen. At 66 I am playing golf, traveling, getting my teaching certificate to be a Pilates teacher and enjoying my life. Karen, thank you so much.
