I started doing remote Pilates with Karina in March 2020. I was able to rent a reformer from a local studio that was closed due to the stay-at-home orders and I was amazed at how thorough of a workout I was able to get from Karina via my iPad. Each workout is unique, but she always works in the key foundations of Pilates. She is meticulous about form, and I swear she has the best vision of any human on this planet! It is amazing that she can identify and correct the tiniest misalignments through a screen. My tween daughter even remarked that my “abs looked amazing!” She was right, and those abs are all because of Karina.
I eventually had to return the reformer to the studio and I was thinking that I would not get as rigorous of a workout just doing mat sessions with Karina. I could not have been more wrong! We’ve been doing twice-weekly mat sessions for the last 9 months, and Karina continues to challenge me in the best ways. She is creative and engaging. She is part trainer, part therapist, part cheerleader. She is extremely talented at tailoring our sessions to directly target any aches, pains, or issues that I may be feeling on a given day. Her cues and corrections are clear and spot-on. At the end of our sessions I feel accomplished, strong, and clear-headed. Karina is simply the best in every possible way.
Since my breast cancer diagnosis in 2008, I have used Pilates to restore and recover. I had been searching for a more personalized experience since I fell in love with Pilates. I found that personalization during my time with Karina.
Karina knows exactly what I need in our daily sessions. Virtually, we meet a few times weekly and I am amazed how much she can tweak and improve without being in the same room. I have seen a drastic improvement in my fitness, form and recovery.
I am amazed how quickly our sessions fly by. We work hard and have a little fun too. Karina is a joy to work with and I am grateful for our time together weekly.
