Karen’s first love in life was ballet. After completing an education in classical ballet in the Mexican National Institute of Fine Arts, she went on to teach ballet and pilates alongside her professional dance career in Mexico.
Looking to expand on her passion for movement, she moved to the Netherlands and became a Polestar Pilates trainer in 2019.
“I fell in love with Pilates when I felt the change in my body, I felt stronger, taller and centered.”
In her classes, Karen hopes to promote the joy of moving & help her students improve their body awareness so that they can reach their fitness goals with pleasure.
What is your favourite part about teaching?
My favorite part/major challenge as a teacher is to help my students to improve their body awareness, so even when they are not in the studio they can notice how their bodies feel and apply what we do in the studio to improve their daily activities.
