Karen currently teaches in South Windsor. She has been teaching Pilates for two years and loves helping others achieve their Pilates goals. She started taking Pilates just for something to do after moving to Connecticut and after realizing that she did not know very many people. It did not take long, however, for her to fall in love with Pilates. Her favorite exercise is short spine on the reformer. She’s lucky to live with her boyfriend and her two cats, who like to help her exercise by providing unexpected weight resistance. When she isn’t teaching or practicing Pilates, Karen is working on a PhD in Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies at UConn, and doing triathlon training. She enjoys eating and making sushi (although she admits her own sushi is not as pretty as what you’d fine in a restaurant), and if she could only eat one flavor of ice cream for the rest of her life, it would be Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip from Graeter’s in Columbus, Ohio (where she grew up).
