Carol Braun

Carol was introduced to Pilates after years of teaching step aerobics. In 2001, she received her Mat Pilates certification through Powerhouse Pilates. Three years later, Carol expanded her knowledge of Pilates and received her Reformer Foundations 1-certification, also through Powerhouse Pilates. Carol’s style of instruction is challenging, succinct, and informative. She encourages her clients to cultivate a greater sense of self-compassion and to develop a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection. Outside of the Club, she enjoys running, hiking and biking. A mother of three children, Carol finds balance through mindfulness and gratitude.
