Pilates is how Caroline shares her passion and fascination in the intricacy and power of the human body in motion. By the end of her dance career in 2010, Caroline was living with chronic lower back pain and ever increasing limits on how she could move her body: like so many who suffer from chronic pain, she experienced a roller coaster of fear, rage, grief and despair mixed with hope that recovery was possible. While she had sporadically attended pilates during her career, it was only with the decision to move to London, UK in 2010 that she fully committed to a transition into pilates and pursued her first instruction certification with Marta Hernandez at PhysicalMind Institute Canada. Upon arrival in London, Caroline leapt at the opportunity to deepen her foundation and re-certify with Master Teacher Alan Herdman, for whom she became an instructor in 2012. From that opportunity, her practice and career developed in studios across London including a position within a highly regarded physiotherapy and sports medicine clinic. The call of the West Coast finally lured her home in August 2017 and she is excited to be working with the phenomenal instructors and beautiful space that is Full Circle Studio! In her search for her own healing, Caroline pursued pilates, yoga, Feldenkreis, osteopathy, fascial release and consumed numerous books on how the human body moves – it was a fascinating and rewarding journey back to health, and
into a depth of knowledge that she now offers to all her clients.
