Coming from a background of aerial arts and competitive cross country skiing, Karina saw the benefits of a regular Pilates practice immediately and signed up for teacher training after her first session. She believes Pilates allows us to regain the freedom of movement we enjoyed as children and that transforming fitness into a form of play is essential to creating a life-long practice.

Her classes are full of laughter and creative cueing with an emphasis on proper grounding and alignment.

Karina completed her Balanced Body certification at Paragon Pilates & Physical Therapy studying under Cari Riis Stemmler, Tiza Wynn Riley, and Roger Gonzalez Hibner. She has completed continuing education in Hands on Cueing Techniques, Pre and Post Natal Pilates and many other topics. She has experience working with a wide range of spinal conditions as well as many other injuries and limitations.
