Carolyn grew up in Baltimore, MD where she enjoyed a very active life, playing lacrosse, swimming, running, kickboxing, and practicing Bikram yoga. She moved to New York City in 2004 to attend Parsons School of Design and in 2009, she discovered Classical Pilates and fell in love with the method. Within a few short months, she noticed an improvement in her asthma, her runs became longer, her body leaner, and her general health improved. In September 2012, she began studying under Brooke Siler and Cary Regan at re:AB Pilates. After completing over 800 hours of training, she graduated the program and became a senior teacher at re:AB as well as Equinox Printing House and Plank Pilates. In March 2014, Carolyn, her husband, and their pup moved from New York City to San Francisco. Carolyn began teaching at Dharmaspace Pilates in March 2014 and in August of 2014, she purchased what is now Keep It Classical Pilates. A passionate teacher who infuses every session with knowledge, energy, sweat and laughter, Carolyn is thrilled to be able to share her love of the Classical method with San Francisco and to grow her studio in this vibrant and exciting city. Keep it Classical is a boutique classical pilates studio located in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District. Our teachers have gone through rigorous Classical Pilates certification programs under some of the best teachers in the country, as well as numerous seminars and workshops taught by top Pilates professionals. Each instructor at Keep It Classical Pilates has completed over 700+ hours of training, observation, and teaching. Our studio is equipped with Gratz equipment and we currently offer both private and duet sessions. Please check us out if you are in the area!!
