Karen grew up with a love for exercise having practiced several types of dance for many years. It was no surprise that practicing and teaching this mind-body method was a natural fit. She was introduced to pilates in 2014 at Bodies by Pilates upon the recommendation of a friend to address chronic lower back discomfort resulting from pregnancy and past injuries. After a few sessions she was hooked. After three weeks, she realized her back was not bothering her as much. A couple years later, Karen is now a Peak Pilates Level 1 certified instructor.
Now in the best physical condition of her life thanks to pilates, Karen believes you must always be a student of the work first, teacher second. She enjoys sharing the benefits of pilates and seeing the changes in those she teaches. Outside of pilates, Karen enjoys being with her daughter and husband, traveling, and cooking healthy recipes.
