As a teenager, Karen turned to sports and fitness as a stress reliever and method to live fully. In 2012, Karen majored in Physical Education (EF) at the Methodist University of São Paulo. In 2013 she earned a postgraduate course in Specialization in Physiology and Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System Rehabilitation and Training at the Orthopedics and Traumatology Institute of the Medical School of the University of São Paulo. In addition, she also completed coursework and a Certification from Voll Pilates Institute.
Karen had the opportunity to work with a variety of people counseling them on important health and nutrition issues. After experiencing her first Pilates class, Karen discovered a connection between body and mind that spawned her passion for Pilates. It has now become her lifestyle!
