Karen is the consummate teacher. I'm always impressed with her communication skills and her ability to present any level of material, keeping it alive, fresh and relevant. I think Karen Sanzo is the best instructor and I am so thankful she is a presenter for Balanced Body; she is the reason I chose Balanced Body. A Student
Karen is outstanding in all aspects. She showed us the verbal, tactile, visual way to teach. In this profession we are challenged in all those areas. Highly recommend Karen for creating the passion for the quality of teaching Pilates. Will continue studying with Karen. I can't thank Karen enough for sharing her passion. A Student
