open quoteKaren 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. close quote

Equipment Training

teacher training Reformer
Pilates Reformer is a flexible piece of equipment allowing resistance and/or support for exercises involving every part of the body. The program provides you with a thorough understanding of how to use the Reformer from set up to execution. You will learn how to develop and enhance core and extremity strength, stability, flexibility, coordination, and balance. The wide range of exercises provides a stimulating and fun workout for clients at any level of ability. The more exercises you have experienced through your own lessons and practice the more you will be able to improve your teaching in order to facilitate the growth and development of others.

Apparatus Training: Cadillac, Tower, Chair, and Barrels
Training on the auxiliary pieces of equipment round out the full Pilates experience. Each piece adds an extra dimension to private or group lessons. Exercises advance and progress addressing the full range of spinal motion in all planes of movement. Constant attention to cueing, coaching and safety are paramount. Modifications are taught, experienced and practiced in order to promote optimal form where the client feels increased length and enhanced movement potential.

It is highly recommended that you complete the Mat certificate before beginning the equipment training.
