Here’s what our students have to say about our workshops and classes:

I enjoyed being able to practice the exercises specifically for prenatal and postpartum clients. I feel empowered with knowledge and more confident now in working with my clientele. Thank you for a great workshop!

Cari is a master in the art of teaching Pilates in a safe, passionate and respectful way. The Orbit is a very enjoyable and challenging piece of equipment benefiting beginners to advanced students.

Cari was absolutely amazing. I would recommend her to anyone. Her teaching style was warm and inviting. She was incredibly knowledgeable and so easy to learn from.

Anatomy for Movement Professionals

Jan 6-8, 2023

This course is open to everyone!

Anatomy is the foundation of our work as movement professionals. The more you understand about how the body works, the better equipped you are to teach your clients how to move better. In this course you will receive an introduction to the major tissues, joints and muscles of movement. Muscle origin, insertion and action are covered along with movement experiences to help you understand and remember not just the individual muscles, but how they work in synergy to create functional movements. The course includes a manual and video support.
