I can't say enough great things about Carrie! She is very caring, genuine, warm and compassionate. I immediately felt a connection. She knows her stuff and is a wonderful instructor. I appreciate how she is constantly reminding us of the proper form and always explains each move. There is no pressure to do every move and she is aware of individuals' needs and special circumstances. I started with her when I was 12 weeks pregnant with my third and I look forward to continuing my journey with her through my postpartum workouts.
I first reached out to Carrie when my second child was almost 5 months old. My body was not coming back together as it had after my first baby, and I knew that I needed someone who truly understood pregnancy and motherhood to help me. I was also exhausted and learning how to juggle the demands of more than one child. Carrie was the perfect instructor. She came to my house for a series of private sessions that were unbelievably effective and helpful. Within a couple of weeks of working with Carrie (of only meeting once per week) I was receiving compliments from people on how I looked. More importantly, I was feeling so much better and energized. I have also enjoyed Carrie's post-natal group class. It's amazing. She's amazing. Carrie really understands how to teach pilates. She is safe, innovative, motivated and motivating. My only regret is not learning about Carrie sooner and not being able, as a mom who works full-time, to see her more often.
I started attending Carrie's prenatal class at 30 weeks, and my only regret is that I didn't hear about the class sooner. I attended class up until my due date, and so looked forward to class each week. The stretches were such a relief to my sore muscles and joints; I did many of them throughout the week at home. Carrie gave such a personal touch to class - remembering everyone's names and due dates, and providing pointers and gentle assistance to deepen stretches. My delivery was as pleasant as it could have been - I only had to push for 15 minutes, thanks in part (I'm sure) to a strong core and pelvic floor... thanks to pilates! I'm very much looking forward to starting the postnatal class in a few weeks!
I've always been a big fan of yoga and pilates, and when I became pregnant, I knew prenatal pilates would be the way to go. I came across Carrie's class and took it from weeks 18 to 39 and it was the best decision I could have made! Carrie is an excellent instructor and takes the time to make sure you're doing the poses properly and getting the relief you need. She even stayed with me several times after class to work out target areas that were bothering me. I can honestly say that the class made me more aware of how to stretch properly without hurting yourself and constantly doing your kegels, which came in extremely handy during labor!! I'm now 3 weeks post partum and feel great, and I can't wait to start the postnatal classes in another 3 weeks.
I have been taking Pilates from Carrie for over 10 years. She got me in amazing shape for my wedding, kept me moving while I was pregnant and got me back into shape postpartum. Through all the years and different stages of my physique, I always finish her class feeling stronger and more aligned. Pilates can seem intimidating while pregnant but Carrie
Carrie helped me get my body back. After having 2 very big babies I found myself in a body that didn
I am now 27 weeks pregnant and I have been working with Carrie since I was 15 weeks pregnant. She is always so friendly and positive! Every time I work with, I am filled with positive energy. She is also a mom herself and she shares mommy wisdom with us which is always so helpful. I find Carrie's class to be fun yet challenging. She knows how to push each person and I get a great workout! She is an awesome instructor and I recommend Carrie's class to anyone who is looking for a great pre-natal workout! I love that she now has post-natal pilates. I look forward to working with her for many months to come!
I've been doing pilates with Carrie for over two years now, the first of which was spent building strength to recover from a back injury and the second of which she saw me through thick and thin - nine months of pregnancy and beyond. She is always careful to modify exercises that may cause me pain or those that become unsafe during pregnancy - all the while keeping me focused and challenged and ultimately stronger and healthier. I couldn't dream up a better way to workout during a long winter of pregnancy than Carrie's in-home privates which are both convenient and forgiving - on more than one occasion she held my 3 year-old son in her arms while I rolled like a ball (with a ball) with two boston terriers looking on eager to jump into the mix. Needless to say we have had some really great laughs through it all. I can't recommend her services highly enough.
I am a student of Carrie's at Power Pilates in Chelsea, and I agree with the other reviews; she is an amazing prenatal Pilates instructor. All around, Carrie is a clear, concise and thorough Pilates teacher. She balances the importance of form while really challenging the body through the method. I have not been pregnant, but if I ever am, she will be the first teacher I will continue my practice with. She seems to see pregnancy (or an injury, etc.) as an opportunity to strengthen in a different way, rather than as a disability. She has a true understanding of the body and you will learn something about yourself when you take her class. Enjoy!
I started going to Carrie's class beginning at 8 weeks of pregnancy and have found it to be the best pre-natal class in town. It's challenging enough that you get a great work out but also relaxing as the same time. I've suffered with low back pain ever since my first pregnancy and it's just gotten worse with one and I always feel so much better after leaving class. Carrie is always super positive and has a great teaching style making sure you have proper form to get maximum results. You will not be disappointed if you sign up!
