I was certified through Karen Carlson’s program in 2004 and have since taken additional workshops and private lessons. It is abundantly clear that Karen Carlson has thoroughly investigated and mastered the innumerable forms, variations and complex anatomical underpinnings of the Pilates Method. Her expert ability to communicate this information through demonstration, anatomical explanation, poetic metaphor, and physical touch continues to impress and inspire me.
Karen is a generous, supportive, and exacting teacher who sets a high bar in both her approach to the material and to her teacher training program. Her dedication to clarifying and expanding the Pilates Method and her commitment to both her clients and the education of teachers make her a unique and valuable asset to the Pilates community. She is truly a rare gem.
