Active Agers - Reformer


This class is taught by:

Karen Christiansen

Senior Certified Pilates Instructor & Certified Scoliosis Specialist.  


Karen is a teacher, healer and lifelong learner. She uses a holistic approach to her teaching addressing the body mind, and spirit. When you train with Karen, her nurturing personality supports personal growth and empowerment. She educates you to understand how to take care of your own body to eliminate faulty movement patterns that could lead to pain or injury.

Karen has been teaching Pilates for fifteen years, and is certified by two internationally renowned programs: the Physical Mind Institute as well as Body Arts & Science International (BASI). In addition, she has extensive training working with clients with Scoliosis. One of her long time clients (ten years) has seen dramatic results and shared this testimonial: “After a session with Karen I stand taller and straighter, and my body is noticeably more balanced. I am free of discomfort and walk away feeling better about the way I look and feel! I will never stop working with Karen.

 

Karen is equally comfortable teaching a full range of fitness levels from athletic to rehab oriented. She has been able to help her clients with back, neck, shoulder, knee, hip and foot issues, and is experienced working with clients who have Osteoporosis, Scoliosis, MS, Parkinson's disease, and Spinal Stenosis. Her greatest joy comes from showing people how Pilates relates to their daily life helping to eliminate pain, and create strong flexible bodies.

The focus of this class will be on fitness, posture and balance in a setting that is safe and appropriate for older clients. Our instructors are extremely skilled and welcome clients who are dealing with postural issues, arthritis, scoliosis, osteoporosis and/or balance challenges.

Please note, clients MUST be able to climb the flight of stairs to be able to participate. For any clients new to Agile Monkey, we strongly recommend starting with an introductory private session and assessment before starting this (or any other) class.
