Kara began studying Yoga and Pilates nearly 20 years ago as a modern dancer in college. She brings to her teaching the influence of a lifetime of movement study including ballet and modern dance, Pilates, vinyasa and alignment based yoga. With an eye for detail, students are offered clear instruction for a refined practice. Kara specializes in working with students to overcome the mechanical, habitual and injury related challenges that can often limit movement.In 2009, with more than 600 apprentice hours completed, Kara became a classically trained Pilates instructor through Power Pilates in NYC, and its affiliate studio, Beacon Pilates in upstate New York. She has been a senior teacher at both The Pilates Boutique and The Center Studio in Manhattan and is proud to now be working with students through her own studio, the Brooklyn Pilates Project, located in Abhaya Yoga Gowanus. Kara completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Tara Glazier at Abhaya Yoga in Dumbo, Brooklyn and continues to teach a weekly Abhaya Core class to both the Gowanus and Dumbo community.
