Karin came to Pilates because she often hurt her back while doing dance and yoga. Though her body was generally fit, she learned that she didn’t have the core support she needed to perform without injuring herself. Through studying and teaching Pilates, she has developed strength and support and is constantly expanding her practice and knowledge. She has a keen eye for alignment and a sense of curiosity that delights and informs the work she does with her clients.
Karin Carlson certified in Pilates in 2006 with Lisa Fehrman of Stillpoint Pilates in Austin, TX. Karin grew up in the Washington, D.C., area, and then lived in the Southeastern United States and now Austin, with some time away in Sweden. She began dancing in the usual classes as a child and then danced with an Atlanta jazz company in her 20s, but it wasn’t until she found Laban movement studies and site-specific dance as an adult that she really took off. Today she dances with Toni Bravo’s Diverse Space Dance Theater, studies Laban with Lucy Dubose, takes class with noted Austin teachers, and creates successful outdoor performance events.
