Dr. Jay and Brad had the honor of interviewing Karen Garcia, former professional ballet dancer and founder of Studio Body Logic® Authentic Pilates Studios.
Karen Garcia spent ten years as a professional ballet dancer with the Dallas, Washington, Fort Worth, and Milwaukee Ballet Companies. These ballet companies performed works from most of the great neoclassical and classical choreographers of our time and classical repertory such as Swan Lake, Giselle, Cinderella, and Coppelia.
A career-ending knee injury and subsequent Pilates-assisted recovery compelled her to devote her time to introducing others to Pilates.
Trained and certified in 1996 under Manhattan-based Romana Kryzanowska, a Joseph Pilates protégé, Karen Garcia is one of a handful of second-generation Pilates instructors in the world.
Karen Garcia founded Studio Body Logic® Authentic Pilates Studios, which have earned significant recognition from local, statewide, and national news media as reputable teaching centers. There are two locations serving over 300 students with multiple instructors, apprentices, and office staff members.
Karen Garcia has taught Pilates for corporations, dance and Pilates conventions, and destination spas. Karen Garcia has also created several nationally best-selling and critically acclaimed Pilates fitness DVDs.
